At Real Clear Politics: Myths the Media Perpetuate About Gun Control

1 Aug , 2020  

Dr. John Lott has a new piece up at Real Clear Politics.

The push to disarm Americans, such as Pamela and Mark McCloskey of St. Louis, stems from the belief that disarming the public will make us safer. But those beliefs arise from myths perpetrated by the media.
