A response to Mother Jones’ mistake filled article on John Lott and the Crime Prevention Research Center

by John R. Lott
Crime Prevention Research Center

The altered image above is from a new Mother Jones’ article, which was written to try discrediting John Lott and the Crime Prevention Research Center.

Mother Jones is willing to do anything to push for gun control.  The magazine is very left-leaning and is funded by individuals such as George Soros.  Even academics such as James Alan Fox, who supports gun control, have taken Mother Jones to task for its misleading use of data on guns.

For several years, Mother Jones and John Lott have been having a running feud.  Unable to win the battle of facts, Mother Jones this week tried hitting back in a more personal way. Continue reading »

My first (and hopefully last) post about religion

By now, you’ve no doubt heard the whole turd typhoon that has erupted over what His Holiness Pope Francis said (or rather, what it’s being made to look like he said) while speaking to a rally of thousands of Catholic youth in Turin, Italy.  According to plenty of MSM – and other, more fringe – sources, the Pope supposedly said that you can’t own a gun and be Christian.  Cue the Catholic-bashers and defenders of the faith to both come out of the woodwork.

The problem is that – as is all too common when the secular, gun-grabbing MSM writes about Christianity or RKBA – he didn’t say what they’re saying he said.  Colour me surprised. Continue reading »

Think you’ve heard this before?

“Mass shootings are on the rise.”

It’s the gun grabber’s favourite boogeyman.  More lunatics going, well, looney in public means we need Big Daddy Government® to rush in and take away all the guns from the people who didn’t do it because one of them “might just snap” at any moment.  Right.

Never mind the fact that nobody ever “just snaps.”  In the aftermath of every shooting, people are left looking at the background of a deeply disturbed individual and asking themselves “how the hell could nobody have seen this coming?”  There are always plenty of signs beforehand.  Even when the signs are noticed, as in the case of the Isla Vista sho0oter, nothing becomes of it; nothing is prevented.

Based on the conversations that always follow these tragedies, you could be forgiven for thinking that the US — and to a certain extent, Canada as well — was as dangerous as ever and that, if anything, it was becoming even more lawless than our previous misconceptions had led some to believe.

Thankfully, the cold hard numbers of the matter tell a different story.  And it’s a lot better than the gun grabber loving MSM would have you believe. Continue reading »

Media Matters’ Fires Blanks in Attack on Reporter

Media Matters — the self-styled “progressive” watchdog that howls in protest whenever anyone  deviates in thought or word from its version of the “progressive agenda” — confirmed its lack of credibility this week by attempting to smear Fox-5 (Washington, D.C.) investigative reporter Emily Miller over her comments relating to gun control.

Gun grabbers catch the STFU flu

Can you hear that?  No, not crickets (although it would be a fitting background effect, don’t you think?); I’m talking about the peace and quiet coming from all the gun grabbers who have clammed up all of a sudden.

Silence… A silence as profound as when the whale swallowed Jonah.

Beautiful, isn’t it?  But you shouldn’t be surprised, not really.  This is all part and parcel of the standard gun grabber modus operandi, which can be summed up as “never waste a tragedy and hide when things don’t go your way.”

Every time some lunatic pulls a trigger in a “gun free zone” and racks up a body count of innocent victims (all conveniently disarmed for his convenience) the gun grabbers all hop on the banned wagon and begin their sacred rituals of shrieking hysterics in front of every camera they can find.  They wail that “something must be done!” and “oh, won’t someone think of the children!” And to anyone who so much as questions their agenda, they will hurl any invective imaginable – from “hillbilly” to “you don’t care about dead children” – like some butthurt caged ape tossing turds at rubberneckers.  But when something comes along that pokes a hole in the balloon of their malignant agenda, they go as silent as a Russian sub in a Tom Clancy movie.
