The reports indicate statistics, especially during the Republican administration, were skewed so that crime stats appeared lower than reality and accurate reporting would show. Corrections and updates are being worked on. Stay tuned.Now, it being Huffpo, I would normally just put this down as the deluded ravings of another ignorant PuSHer. The reason it caught my attention, though, was that our occasional troll made the exact same claim a few months ago. He stated he couldn't remember where he read it. The recent poster has so far refused to provide the source. This leads me to believe it's from some gun control group press release or 'report'.
That the NRA influenced political reports during the last nine years to help skew gun stats, misinterpret, is likely. Money and political clout count for a lot in our nation today. How much does it cost to lie?
Has anyone else heard this or point to where it came from? Assuming it's true, that is, and it's not just two deranged minds coming up w/ a similar fantasy.
