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.
Andrew Branca has a review of Dr. Lott’s new book at Legal Insurrection. The entire review is worth reading. Here are a few select paragraphs from it.
For those of us in the gun rights and concealed carry community (and old enough to have been around) the 1990s was a pivotal decade.
This review of “The War on Guns” appeared in the December issue of The American Rifleman.
While attacks on the Second Amendment are all-too common in today’s politically charged climate, advocates fighting for our right to self-defense and the right to bear arms now have a powerful new tool in The War On Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies, the latest book by John R.
Eve Flanigan has a review of “The War on Guns” at Guns.com (other reviews are available here):
Dr. John Lott, Jr. of Crime Prevention Research Institute recently released a new book that’s touted to be the definitive guide to countering all the current arguments for gun control.
The War on Guns: arming yourself against gun control lies is Lott’s new release.
Robert Verbruggen, an editor at The American Conservative, writes:
. . . Today I’ll look at the issue, with a special focus on a new analysis the economist John R. Lott presents in his book The War on Guns. . . .
Enter Lott. In his book, he does spend some time going over the Missouri and Connecticut cases.
Matt Vespa has a new review of The War on Guns up at Townhall.com.
Dr. John Lott is the go-to expert when it comes to crime data and Second Amendment rights. His studies from the Crime Prevention Center have been cited in numerous pieces, including ones published here on Townhall, about the Left’s incessant, and often ridiculous, efforts to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
Dr. John Lott gave a half hour talk on his new book, The War on Guns, at the Gun Rights Policy Conference on Saturday, September 24th from 4:30 to 5:00 PM.
From the review:
It’s a sustained game of whack-a-mole. Up pops the claim, and in comes the hammer. Bang! Bang! Bang! And that’s why you’re wrong.
Believe that most academics are in favor of more gun control? Bang, you’re wrong. Convinced that extending background checks is a no-brainer? Bang, you’re wrong.
From the book review in The Washington Times:
In his new book, “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” John Lott methodically dismantles one popular gun-control myth after another.
It has been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth, and a similar phenomenon is overwhelming the gun debate in America.
