John Lott writes in a Newsweek op-ed:

Thirty-seven states have changed their mail-in voting procedures this year in response to the coronavirus. They have followed the lead of Democrats and the media, who claim that concerns about voter fraud and vote buying are figments of the Republican imagination… Liberals and progressives often try to model the U.S.

A study released in August 2018 found that over a 10-year period, CCW permits had increased roughly 275 percent — from 4.6 million permits in 2007 to over 17.25 permits in 2018, the Crime Prevention Research Center found.

The center discovered that the most notable demographic increases were among women and minorities.

“That increase in women and minorities mirrors their changing views on guns,” John Lott, the founder of the CPRC, told Fox News at the time.

FIRE AWAY — “California’s Ammo Background Checks Misfire,” by John R. Lott Jr. in the National Review: “Between July 2019 and January 2020, 101,047 non-prohibited Californians were prevented from buying bullets. By contrast, just 188 prohibited people were denied.

Dr. John R. Lott, Jr., a gun rights advocate who founded the Crime Prevention Research Center, said concerns that the police could handle a possible uptick in crime are warranted and are prompting some to take self-defense into their own hands. 

“You have police all across the country which are being restricted in terms of their ability to go and respond to calls,” said Lott.
