Milan Simonich's Ringside Seat column published Friday, June 11, 2021, on Page A-6 incorrectly stated state Rep. Melanie Stansbury sponsored a bill to enhance penalties for crimes committed with a gun. Other legislators added the firearms provision to a public safety bill that lists Stansbury as a sponsor.
