At Townhall: The Blacklist Misinformation on Guns

23 Apr , 2020  

Dr. John Lott has a new op-ed at Townhall on media bias.

These days, television entertainment shows depict gun owners either as buffoons or criminals. They never portray regular civilians using guns to save lives, and instead like to show firearms falling into the wrong hands.

On Friday’s episode of “The Blacklist,” a robber fatally shoots a young woman working at a convenience store.
