Matt Vespa has a new review of The War on Guns up at Townhall.com.
Dr. John Lott is the go-to expert when it comes to crime data and Second Amendment rights. His studies from the Crime Prevention Center have been cited in numerous pieces, including ones published here on Townhall, about the Left’s incessant, and often ridiculous, efforts to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
Dr. John Lott gave a half hour talk on his new book, The War on Guns, at the Gun Rights Policy Conference on Saturday, September 24th from 4:30 to 5:00 PM.
From the review:
It’s a sustained game of whack-a-mole. Up pops the claim, and in comes the hammer. Bang! Bang! Bang! And that’s why you’re wrong.
Believe that most academics are in favor of more gun control? Bang, you’re wrong. Convinced that extending background checks is a no-brainer? Bang, you’re wrong.
From the book review in The Washington Times:
In his new book, “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” John Lott methodically dismantles one popular gun-control myth after another.
It has been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth, and a similar phenomenon is overwhelming the gun debate in America.
Jazz Shaw has this review of Dr. John Lott’s new book here:
I’ve just finished reading one of the best books on gun control to come out in some time and wanted to share some of the experience with you. The timely and superbly written tome by John R. Lott Jr.
Tim Groseclose reviews Lott’s book The War on Guns.
John Lott, Jr., a PhD economist who has published scores of peer-reviewed articles in top journals, has written an outstanding and important new book, The War on Guns. It is, I believe, the most important document ever written about guns.
The book has many outstanding aspects.
