Information on how the president’s executive actions on guns will have a real negative impact on law-abiding people’s ability to be able to defend themselves and loved ones.

CPRC in Investors’ Business Daily: “Bloomberg Twists Gun Research To Political Ends”

John Lott’s newest piece is on Michael Bloomberg’s efforts to pollute the academic debate with false statistics.

Michael Bloomberg keeps pouring $50 million into his Everytown organization to push gun control. That’s just a portion of the money he’s spending. Bloomberg is spending money not just on the political battle, but also on funding research that he can use to push for more gun control and training the media on how to properly cover the issue.

This claim is simply not true.  …

New CNN Poll Shows that few Americans believe that Obama’s Executive Actions will make a difference, but they still support it

According to CNN, only 41% of Americans think that Obama’s executive regulations will reduce the number of gun-related deaths, but 67% still support it, with 43% saying that they strongly support the move.  This raises the concern that Republicans harping only on whether Obama’s actions are legal leaves Americans to believe that Obama is at least trying to do something.  …

John Lott’s newest opinion piece at the Daily Caller starts this way:

I wish that I had been able to go to CNN’s town hall with President Obama. But Thursday night’s event was invitation-only.
