4 Mar , 2015  


Bloomberg’s argument here is that the bill to allow concealed handgun permit holders to carry on school property is really an attempt to let criminals carry guns around schools. The fact that people will need a permit that requires a criminal background check is never mentioned.

So what is the rate that permit holders cause problems?…

Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action makes false statement to Texas state Senators, claiming that there are no numbers on the behavior of permit holders

17 Feb , 2015  

The bizarre thing here is that Moms Demand Action really thought that they could get away with their claim that there is no data available on how permit holders behave.  Surely, Texas state Senators know what information is offered by the Texas Department of Public Safety, and similar data is available for other states (Michigan and Florida, though the CPRC didn’t pay to obtain the Florida data).  …

1 Nov , 2014  

CPRC’s John Lott has another piece at Fox News that starts this way:

Let’s say a stalker is threatening a female friend of yours. She asks you if she can borrow your handgun. She is trained and has no criminal record. Should you loan her your gun?
