CPRC at Fox News: “If Clinton wins, America, kiss your right to self-defense good-bye”

Dr. John Lott has a new piece at Fox News:

In terms of individual rights, there has probably never been so much at stake in a presidential election. If Hillary Clinton wins, Americans will soon lose the right of self-defense in their own homes.

Wednesday night in Las Vegas moderator Chris Wallace quickly started off the debate by asking Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton about the Second Amendment.

CPRC at Fox News: “Guns, the Second Amendment and what you should hear from Clinton and Trump”

Dr. John Lott has a new piece up at Fox News

At this Sunday’s town-hall style presidential debate the public is able to vote for their favorite questions. The ABC News and CNN moderators plan on using the 30 questions that receive the most votes.

Largely because of efforts by gun control organizations, the current top two questions are both on gun control.

CPRC at the Philadelphia Inquirer: “Trump law-and-order platform would help blacks”

Dr. John Lott has a new op-ed at the Philadelphia Inquirer on the New York Times claim that Trump’s “law and order” campaign is just code for racism.

Is Donald Trump’s “law and order” campaign just code for racism? The media and Hillary Clinton sure believe so. After Trump’s recent talk in Chester, the front page of the New York Times criticized him for supporting the deportation of people who have been charged with crimes and the aggressive profiling of terrorism suspects as racist and counterproductive.

CPRC at Fox News: “What Donald Trump knows about Hillary Clinton and her bodyguards”

Dr. John Lott has a new piece at Fox News on the most recent uproar about Donald Trump’s comments and guns.

Was Donald Trump inciting violence against Hillary Clinton when he spoke last Friday about disarming her bodyguards?  Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate, says so.

The media was hysterical.

CPRC in the New York Post: “Sorry, Hillary: Trump’s policies are clearly better for blacks”

Dr. John Lott’s latest op-ed at the New York Post starts this way:

Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?”

But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks?

CPRC at Fox News: Trump foes miss the mark on Clinton’s Second Amendment stand

Dr. John Lott’s new piece at Fox News was on the top of the Front page and it was for at least the last two hours the most read article on the entire website.  The piece starts this way:

Donald Trump keeps saying that Hillary Clinton wants to “essentially abolish the Second Amendment.”  But the media fact checkers are having none of it.
