CPRC on Fox News to discuss Chicago’s policing policies and restrictions on poor people being able to defend themselves


Appearance: Saturday, April 26th, 9:33 to 9:37 PM. Here is a rough transcript.

Judge Jeanine: With me now, political commentator, author of seven books [actually eight] including More Guns, Less Crime, John Lott. Okay. More Guns, Less Crime. That is counter intuitive. What does that mean?

Lott: Just as you can deter criminals with higher arrest rates or conviction rates, the fact that victims can defend themselves can also deter criminals.

Media Matters, TPM, and others mislead over CPRC’s interview on MSNBC: Gun-free zones on military bases



It is quite flattering that any time Media Matters and TPM spent so much real estate going after me. Media Matters’ post was at the top of their front page from late morning on Friday until at least midnight (my last check). [UPDATE: As of 6:30 AM on Monday, April 7th, their article is still at the very top of their front page for virtually three full days.]

John Lott’s debate on MSNBC is available here (April 4, 2014 from 10:05 to 10:15 AM (this version has almost the entire exchange, though it doesn’t include Chris Jansing’s introduction and first question)).…

CPRC making a difference in the debate over the Fort Hood Mass Public Shooting

John Lott’s op-ed on the shooting at Fox News starts this way:

The Obama administration hasn’t learned anything from the massacres at Fort Hood in 2009 or the Washington Navy Yard last year.

For all my research on how to stop or prevent mass public shootings and all the victims at these attacks that I have talked to over the years, the attack this week at Fort Hood was different.
