John Lott’s piece at Fox News started this way:
Gun control advocates not only push new fees and taxes on guns to reduce ownership, but they also employ another tactic: scaring people into not owning guns.
Last week, on January 31, ABC News saturated its news programs with the alleged danger of gun ownership.
The piece at National Review starts off this way:
Tuesday night, President Obama vowed to “help stop more tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters and our shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook.”
But before he continues pushing his typical gun-control agenda, he should consider what law enforcement in Europe and the United States advise.
The newest piece at Fox News starts this way:
January is National Stalking Awareness Month and this week’s announcement by Civitas Media, that it was constructing a national database of concealed handgun permit holders, couldn’t have come at a worse time.
This is quite a service Civitas will provide stalkers with.
The op-ed piece in the Inquirer starts this way:
The new year has brought yet more gun-control regulations. President Obama announced new executive orders on background checks. Connecticut citizens stood in long lines to register their guns, and, next door in New York City, registration lists are used to confiscate them.
The CPRC presents an analysis of the federal district court’s decision at National Review Online. The beginning of the analysis starts this way:
New York’s new gun-control law, the so-called SAFE Act, largely survived its first federal-court challenge on this past Tuesday. The more than 1,140 New Yorkers it’s made felons will remain so.
A New op-ed piece by John Lott starts this way:
President Obama has pushed hard for gun control this year and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent millions of dollars on ads, but the administration’s promise to coordinate “a November lobbying effort and plan events to commemorate the first anniversary of the Newtown, Connecticut” has gotten little traction.
The piece by the Crime Prevention Research Center starts this way:
New York City Mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg sure knows how to get his way.
This week the NFL, after featuring anti-gun ads during the last two Super Bowls, it decided that an ad offering the opposite point of view in the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2 was just too much.
John Lott’s newest piece at Fox News starts this way:
When lives are on the line, what saves lives — not politics – should guide policy.
Gun control advocates used to warn about blood in the streets if we didn’t tighten gun laws, but as concealed handgun permits in the U.S.
John Lott’s piece at the Chicago Tribune coincides with the Senate hearing on Stand Your Ground laws tomorrow. The article starts this way:
As Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-Ill.) Judiciary subcommittee hears testimony on “stand your ground” laws Tuesday, charges of racial discrimination will be the central focus. Two black women, one of them Trayvon Martin’s mom, are expected to testify about losing their sons to gunshots by white or Hispanic men.
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.
