John Lott has a new piece on Bloomberg’s push for gun control at The Daily Caller that starts this way:

I have given several talks at the Seattle Pacific University law school over the years and the school is definitely a gun-free zone. I have called people that I know in Seattle and confirmed that this hasn’t changed from last year. Apparently the killer, in this case that has left one dead and three wounded, used a shotgun.…
