Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
John R. Lott brings real facts, logic and common sense to the gun control issue, as distinct from the misrepresentations and hysterical rantings of the left-wingers. All those who believe the founding fathers really did know what they were doing when they authored the Bill of Rights and in particular the Second Amendment therein will find plenty of support in Prof. Lott's books.

As the previous reviewer has noted, the first reviewer obviously meant to give this book 5 stars and not 1.

I've read this book and it is excellent. I agree with the previous review, and think he must have meant to give it a higher rating and hit the wrong button or something.

John Lott does an excellent job providing information on the gun debate. For those that feel that his facts are incorrect, do what I did and grab a calculator and follow the statistics. You will find that his research models, results and honest conclusions are FAR more accurate than the opposition. Those who feel that his work is inaccurate are those who cannot follow the math.

This book contains a collection of short articles which have appeared in magazines, newspapers, and media over the years. Mr. Lott is able to make his arguments on the hard facts of gun rights issues because he knows what he's talking about and he can point to publicly recorded numbers and results to make his points. This book is invaluable material for anyone who chooses to enter the public debate on these issues and chooses to use actual data instead of emotions and feelings. Buy and extra copy and share it.
