Gun safety advocates dispute that research, but Gottlieb says there are plenty of examples to back it up, such as recent shootings in schools, malls, and movie theaters among other public places.

Swalwell responded, “Who wants to tell John Lott that if my assault weapons ban and buy-back had been in place before Sandy Hook or Parkland, those children wouldn’t have been killed?”
