The Oklahoman Editorial Board extensively discusses the new CPRC report on Concealed Handgun Permits, other media also covering our report

The Oklahoman Editorial Board, Sunday, August 14, 2016

DUE in part to recent mass shootings, Democrats have begun to embrace gun control again. The Hill, a newspaper covering Congress, noted that this amounts to Democrats “betting that a shift in voter sentiment has turned a once-toxic issue into a political winner.”

There’s good reason to think Democrats are wrong, particularly if their calculations are driven by the stereotype that guns-rights supporters are mostly rural, working-class whites who seldom vote Democrat anyway.

Obama has rightly been criticized on this front by the ever-alert John Lott for ignoring the underlying rate of violations, especially in connection with arrest rates for homicide, which are twice as high for blacks even though they are six times as likely than whites to commit homicide.

The Daily Caller, Monday, June 13, 2016

Another “new” lesson: Gun-free zones do not prevent attacks of this nature, and this past weekend in Florida proves it. According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, both the Pulse and the location where former Voice contestant Christine Grimmie was killed were “gun-free” zones.
