CPRC at National Review: “Bogus Gun-Control Numbers: To prove that concealed handguns are dangerous, the Violence Policy Center cooks the books”

How far will gun control advocates go to advance their cause? The newest piece at National Review Online starts this way:

People walking the streets armed with guns are dangerous, right? With all 50 states finally allowing concealed handguns to at least some degree and with over 11 million Americans now having permits to carry them, this question ought to have been settled.

CPRC at Fox News: “What the press is missing in Bloomberg’s anti-gun push”

The newest piece at Fox News starts this way:

Gun control has largely been a top down effort. Michael Bloomberg’s latest announcement that he will spend another $50 million to push gun control – 2.5 times the amount spent by the NRA annually on political activities – is all too typical.

CPRC in Investor’s Business Daily: “Michael Bloomberg, Gun Control And Fabricated Numbers”

John Lott’s newest piece at Investor’s Business Daily starts this way:

No doubt, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg passionately believes in gun control. To his credit, he puts his own money — tens of millions of dollars, and possibly much more — into pushing the issue politically.

But Bloomberg’s push hasn’t been just political advertising, lobbying and media appearances.

CPRC in the Chicago Tribune on gun-free zones at military bases

John Lott’s op-ed on gun-free zones at military bases at the Chicago Tribune starts this way:

What stops a mass public shooting is a person with a gun. Frequently it isn’t even necessary to fire the gun. But the length of time between when an attack starts and when someone is able to arrive on the scene with a gun is crucial in determining how many people get killed or wounded.

CPRC in the news at Fox News: “After Fort Hood: Should soldiers be allowed to bear arms on base?”

John Lott’s newest piece at Fox News starts this way:

In debates on gun control, gun opponents usually speculate about what might go wrong. Unfortunately, the current debate over arming soldiers on military bases is no different.

Except for the military police, soldiers on military bases are banned from carrying guns.

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.

CPRC’s new op-ed piece in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review: “No more sitting ducks — we must arm our soldiers on their bases”

John Lott’s newest piece was the featured commentary in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review’s Sunday opinion section and it starts this way:

Can mass shootings be stopped or prevented? The Obama administration’s political views prevent it from even considering certain obvious solutions.

On Tuesday the Department of Defense released its report on the Sept.

CPRC at Fox News: “Surgeon General nomination forces Senate Democrats to hide gun views”

Our newest piece by John Lott at Fox News starts this way:

When will some Democrats who describe themselves as “pro-gun” realize that they aren’t fooling anyone?

Here’s their latest deception. President Obama’s nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to be surgeon general is in trouble, because the National Rifle Association decided that it was going to “score” the vote – that is, let its members know which senators voted for someone they believe is a threat to people being able to own guns for self-defense.

CPRC at Investor’s Business Daily: “The Police Should Carry Guns Off The Job To Protect Us”

The piece by John Lott at Investor’s Business Daily starts this way:

Unbelievably, some won’t even let police officers work for free. They object to them carrying guns when off-duty.

Gun-control advocates are so extremely fearful of guns, the NFL has banned off-duty police from carrying their guns inside stadiums. They really believe that the presence of guns, even those carried by off-duty police, pose an unacceptable danger.
