CPRC at Fox News: “Bloomberg’s latest stats on school gun violence ignore reality”

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

Are schools and colleges dangerous places, with lots of gun violence?

Some groups paint a picture of these places being particularly unsafe. Supposedly both murders and firearm suicides are very common at educational institutions. Last Wednesday, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s two groups, Moms Demand Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, jointly released a report that received massive uncritical news coverage.

CPRC at Fox News: “It may soon be easy to carry a permitted concealed handgun in California”

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

California may soon join 42 other states in letting people carry concealed handguns once they meet certain objective criteria.

John Lott’s piece at Fox News started this way:

The piece at National Review starts off this way:

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.

Evaluating the Evidence in the Federal district court’s New York gun law decision

The CPRC presents an analysis of the federal district court’s decision at National Review Online. The beginning of the analysis starts this way:

Opinion piece at Fox News: “NFL hypocrisy — Bloomberg anti-gun ads ok but ad about ‘protection’ is banned?”

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.
