AWR Hawkins has a review of The War on Guns at Breitbart.
If you have ever thought it would be helpful to have a reference book you could flip through to quickly read up on the actual facts surrounding things like background checks, mass public shootings, stand your ground laws, etc., then John Lott Jr.’s newest book The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies is for you.
To be clear, The War on Guns is a rich and rewarding read from front to back when you first pick it up. Lott–an economist by training and founder of the Crime Prevention Research Center–does what he does best: he uses methods, statistics, reports, and studies to show that the left’s claims about guns and gun control are largely unfounded, if not completely untrue. . . .
He did this same thing with his seminal work More Guns, Less Crime, by using FBI crime stats on a county-by-county basis to show that higher gun ownership correlated with lower rates of crime. To put it another way, Lott lets the stats speak for themselves, and this approach proves to be quite damning when brought to bear on the arguments the left perpetuates to support gun control. . . .
The War on Guns will educate you and will then become a reference resource you will turn to again and again . . . .
