A reader correctly pointed out that I mis-linked a story. In fact, we seem to have swapped links during the editing process. Going into our 5th year, this appears to be the first time this has happened, and we greatly appreciate that a reader pointed out the error in the dispatch titled: Classic
There were no actual misquotes or misrepresentations, just an address incorrectly hyperlinked to a related story.

Nowhere have I said that rocket launchers and machineguns are being legally purchased in the United States and being shipped abroad. I offer a $10 reward for the first person who finds such a quote from me. I would also ask that all those who made such assertions, erroneously, send me $10 when they fail to find the quotes.
Insofar as my mislink:
The story that was actually linked: The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S.
