Newest Fox News piece: The truth about the new executive orders targeting guns

My newest piece starts this way:

It sure sounds scary. “Military weapons” being reimported back into the United States. Or people getting guns without background checks. But the reception being given President Obama’s two new executive orders on guns largely relies on ignorance of how the current rules work.  

The president’s executive order banning the reimportation of “military weapons” really only affects old M-1 Garand 30-06 rifles.

Newest piece at National Review: “Obama’s Racial Imbalance: He professes outrage when there’s little evidence of bias against blacks, but ignores attacks on whites.”

John Lott’s newest piece starts this way:

Racism should make people pretty angry. But for that very reason charges of racism should only be leveled carefully. 

George Zimmerman wasn’t motivated by race in confronting Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, a Hispanic, was himself one-eighth black. The prosecution in his case produced no statements by Zimmerman showing any racial bias.

John Lott’s newest Fox News piece starts this way:

With school starting soon, he claims that if the Clarksville, Arkansas School District lets employees carry concealed handguns at school,their names must be made public.
