FAKE NEWS (see below) 7.8 million illegal aliens tried to buy guns in 2018

Story Correction: Hi everyone! I was informed that a story that we covered was "fake news". I did some research and it turns out that it was. Here's the details.

Our source:
Townhall.com (reasonably reputable) - 
Headline: (Oh Goodie: FBI Says A Record Number Of Illegal Tried To Purchase Guns This Year)
Correction: nope

So then I tracked it back from them to the Washington Examiner (meh)
Headline: FBI: Record number of illegal immigrants barred from buying guns
Correction: faint italics at the bottom. (CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said the numbers were of attempted purchases. The report is of "active records" of those barred. Washington Secrets regrets the error.)

Tracked from there to the FBI Report. And I see now how the wording was taken out of context. This is the number of records in NICS, not how many were rejected. Looks like total rejections was 3,300 or so.

The numbers seemed outrageous to me and I should have listened to my gut!

Thanks to Daniel for letting me know and I apologize for the inconvenience!
