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.

CPRC in the Las Vegas Review Journal: “Gun-free zones put innocent in danger”

John Lott’s op-ed in the Las Vegas Review Journal starts this way:

Would you post a sign announcing that your home is a gun-free zone? Would you feel safer? Criminals don’t obey these signs. In fact, to criminals, gun-free zones look like easy targets.

So why do we put up these signs in other places?
