Gun rights advocate John Lott, author of More Guns, Less Crime, rebuts recent antigun "factoids" with real statistics.
When it comes to the gun control debate, there are two kinds of data: data that's accurate and data that left-wing billionaires, politicians, and media want you to believe is accurate. In The War on Guns, economist and gun rights advocate John Lott turns a skeptical eye to well-funded antigun studies and stories that perpetuate false statistics to frighten Americans into giving up their guns.

Yes but there is an issue.This topic is one with a huge emotional content on both sides of the argument. I love John Lott and am very happy that he is there and has done all the research needed to PROVE he is the one whose facts are valid- HOWEVER, the book's reader has a very pushy argumentative tone which will invariably turn off the exact people who we need to have their views turned around by his books. I might not be able to recommend this book to anti-gun friends since it sounds like he is yelling the facts at us instead of simply educating us with good research. Would love his first book, More Guns Less Crime to be made into an audio bk with a less gnarly reader.
Who the heck is John McLain?
yes but I would never have the time
make his first book into an audio book More Guns, Less Crime
a must read by everyone, it's hard to argue the facts. You can choose to ignore them and embrace them.
Must read! Information is power. Don't let the liberal politicians and media lie to you. Guns are needed to defend from criminals that won't obey the law anyway. Thank you Dr Lott for your steadfastness.
Dr Lott brings a much needed counter-point to the otherwise very distorted and one sided coverage of issues of personal defense, the rule of law, and freedom. This is the side you never get to hear. Listen, follow-up, check his sources and then judge for yourself.
This book really helps dispelled a lot of the misinformation surrounding guns and gun politics. it explores crime stats in a detailed way and compares around the world. this is a great guide if you want to learn how to counter a lot of points you hear from anti-gun rights people.
Proper research and statistical analysis conducted VERY well! Absolutely amazing info!! SO MANY PEOPLE need to hear this information. If they don't, a lot of people could end up getting hurt :( I can't express how valuable this info is.
So much truthful information, presented in a logical, easily comprehended read.
Sheds light on the propaganda being used to deprive US citizens of all our rights, not just gun rights.
Excellent explanation of how poorly constructed studies draw wrong conclusions, and how the media distort reality by only choosing to report stores they deem "news worthy".
