Awful peace of disinformation in SFGate. I thought that the "90% from US gun shops" theory is beaten to death already, but here is a new one: it is not 90% - it is 70% now. The new number uses the same old flawed math but I guess SFGate will not let facts to stand in a way of a good story... :mad:

Though gun-rights advocates and at least one prominent U.S. senator ferociously stand by that politically charged theory, federal firearms data show only a tiny percentage originate south of Mexico's border.

It looks like the folks posting comments have things under control.
