Dr. John Lott has a new piece up at Townhall.com about Democrat gun control proposals. The piece starts this way:

On Sinclair Broadcasting’s “America This Week,” Eric Bolling led a discussion between gun control proponents Jason Nichols and Misha Cross versus those supporting self-defense, Sebastian Gorka and John Lott.

Dr. John Lott appeared on the UK’s TalkRadio about “what is America’s problem with mass shootings.” The segment that they eventually aired cut off the beginning of the talk show host’s attack on President Trump for supposedly waiting until the Monday after the Saturday shooting at the Walmart in El Paso before making a statement to the nation.…

Nikki Goeser, our executive director, has a new op-ed at the Daily Caller. Her piece starts this way:
Since the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, many politicians have claimed that a federal law mandating universal background checks — which would apply to the transfer of firearms between private citizens — would help solve, or at least reduce, such shootings in the future.
Dr. John Lott and Congressman Thomas Massie have another op-ed out. This one at National Review:
Everyone is sick of mass public shootings in the United States. Enough is enough. Everyone, including us, is incredibly frustrated.
But let’s do something that doesn’t make the problem worse.
With President Trump’s endorsement, Senate Republicans are moving forward with one law that they hope will help — a so-called “red-flag” law, advancing on the federal level what are known as “extreme risk protection orders.” Ohio’s governor also came out and endorsed such a law for his state after the attack.
Dr. John Lott talked to Graham Ledger On One America News’ The Daily Ledger about background checks on the private transfer and other gun control proposals. This video only about half of the interview.
