— A story on page A1 Jan. 17 with the headline “Tighter gun laws ahead? Now there’s a new rush to buy them,” referenced statistics on applications to the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office for permits to purchase firearms. The story didn’t make clear the permits are required only for handgun purchases, not for the purchase of long guns such as rifles and shotguns.
