CPRC at Fox News: “Gun-free zones are killing us”

28 Jul , 2015  


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

Hours before the latest shooting at a movie theater in Louisiana, President Obama lamented what he regards as his greatest failure as president – his inability to pass gun control measures.

In an interview with the BBC, he complained that we are “the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun safety laws.”

For a president who is moving to take away guns from millions of veterans and the elderlysimply because they rely on others to handle their finances, some say Obama has already gone too far. 

Obama offers no explanation for why the worst mass shooting during his presidency occurred in Europe, not in the US. Nor did he explain why many European countries have a higher frequency of attacks and a higher death rate from mass public shootings.

Not once during his interview with the BBC does he explain how his gun control proposals would have stopped any of the attacks he has spoken so passionately about.  

The expanded background checks Obama has advocated wouldn’t have stopped a single one of the attacks that occurred during his presidency.  . . .
