HELENA, Mont. (AP) — In a story Dec. 10, The Associated Press reported that a study found that six states were not alerting the FBI about people with mental health problems that would bar them from owning guns, citing the fact that the those states had submitted fewer than 100 records each to the federal government since 1998. The story should have noted that, in contrast, during the same time period, other states submitted between 396 and 653,391 records each, according to FBI statistics released to a gun-control advocacy group.
