Dr. John Lott has a new piece at Townhall about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) comments about terrorism. The piece starts this way:

In the clip, Al Jazeera asks her about attacks in the U.S.
Dr. John Lott is interviewed by One America News about our research on mass public shootings occurring in gun-free zones and school shootings. Congressman Thomas Massie is also quoted as using statistics from our report on school shootings.

UPDATE: Governor Newsom: “This is insane. Only in America, only in America, here we go again.” Yet, few seem to realize how much more common mass public shootings are in the rest of the world, including parts of Europe. An earlier similar study was published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Gottlieb calls gun-free zones “counterproductive,” noting the vulnerability of people should a mass-shooting incident take place.
He points to research from the conservative Crime Prevention Research Center, that says 98 percent of mass shootings since 1950 have happened in gun-free zones. Gun safety advocates dispute that research, but Gottlieb says there are plenty of examples to back it up, such as recent shootings in schools, malls, and movie theaters among other public places.
Dr. John Lott has a new piece at Townhall about recent comments by Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-Ca).
