    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.

    On its initial publication in 1998, John R. Lott's More Guns, Less Crime drew both lavish praise and heated criticism. More than a decade later, it continues to play a key role in ongoing arguments over gun-control laws: Despite all the attacks by gun-control advocates, no one has ever been able to refute Lott's simple, startling conclusion that more guns mean less crime.

    Over the past four years, President Barack Obama has systematically undermined every pillar of America’s strength and vitality from the economy to health care to immigration to energy policy to personal liberty. With a bloated federal bureaucracy, staggering national debt, crippling unemployment, a crushing burden of regulation and red tape for private business and entrepreneurs, zealous pursuit of far-left pet projects, and attacks on every Constitutional freedom imaginable, Obama has brought America to the brink of disaster.
