CPRC at Fox News: Why Michael Bloomberg’s latest push for gun control is all wrong

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

Michael Bloomberg is spending tens of millions of dollars trying to convince state legislatures to support restrictive gun control laws.  From television and newspaper ads, to blanketing communities with flyers, to bringing in people from out of state to testify, no effort seems too great.

CPRC at Fox News: “Is gun ownership really down in America?”

John Lott’s newest piece at Fox News:

Is gun ownership falling? The answer is yes, at least if you believe a new General Social Survey (GSS) by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC). Supposedly, since the late 1970s, the percentage of homes with a gun has fallen from approximately 50 percent to 32 percent.

CPRC at Fox News: “Rare Victory: Obama administration temporarily drops ammo ban proposal”

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

If President Obama can’t have his way with banning guns, it looks like his next option is to ban the bullets used by those guns.  Too often, Obama has shown little regard for the law.  He does what he wants.  If you want him to actually follow the law, you will have to take him to court.

Trending at NY Post Ferguson Report

CPRC in the New York Post: “Ferguson fake out: Justice Department’s bogus report”

John Lott’s piece in the New York Post starts this way (for those interested in reading the original DOJ report on Ferguson it is available here):

Addressing the nation from Selma, Ala., on Saturday, President Obama said that while racism may be “no longer endemic,” as it was 50 years ago, his Justice Department’s report on Ferguson shows that the “nation’s racial history still casts its long shadow upon us.”

Sorry: The Justice report doesn’t prove disparate treatment, let alone discrimination.
