“If Biden is allowed to impose regulations without a vote by Congress simply because he decides it helps ‘public safety,’ there is no limit to what he can do,” gun advocate John R. Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, told Fox News. “He could use this same reasoning to impose any gun control regulation that he wanted.”Andrew Mark Miller, “Second Amendment groups on Biden mandate: If he can force a needle in your arm, can he take your gun?,” Fox News, September 10, 2021.
As reported by gun expert John Lott, Chipman “has called for gun registration and licensing of the vast majority of semi-automatic rifles, with a $200 fee.” Chipman also defines the AR-15 as “a particularly lethal weapon.”Michael W.

But that’s not the whole story. Although Missouri’s murder rate rose 17% relative to the rest of the U.S. in the five years after repeal, it actually increased by 32% during the five years before repeal, meaning Missouri’s increasing murder rate actually slowed after repealing purchase permits.
The Crime Prevention Research Center’s Dr. John Lott says Stein’s claim “cherry picks” data, further noting that Missouri’s violent crime rate fell 7% faster than the rest of the U.S. . . . .LT. GOV.

America is, in fact, the Outlier: Voter IDs Are the Rule in Europe & Elsewhere
By John R. Lott, Jr.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — There is, in fact, evidence that Black & Minority Voter Registration Rates increase faster than whites after states implement Voter ID requirements for registration. Yet Democrats and much of the media are pushing to make permanent the extraordinary, pandemic-driven measures to relax voting rules during the 2020 elections – warning anew of racist voter “suppression” otherwise. . . .

It has become a modern day mantra that the rdight to vote by “secret ballot” is a sacred American right. But this is actually untrue. Until the late 1800s all votes in all States were public information. The move to the secret ballot occurred state-by-state from 1888-1950 to combat voter fraud.“Why do most countries ban mail-in ballots?: They have seen massive vote fraud problems” John R.

As John R. Lott and Thomas Massie wrote this week for The Washington Times, “Being on the watch list doesn’t mean that you are guilty of anything. You can be on the list simply because the FBI wants to interview you about someone you might know. As of 2014, about 40 percent of people on the watch list were under ‘reasonable suspicion’ despite having ‘no affiliation with known terrorist groups.’ People can get nominated for the list by various government agencies, and no oversight agency exists to ensure that these additions are justified.”
It is a myth that the late Sen. Ted Kennedy of Mass. was ever on the list – he technically wasn’t on the list, but he and the late Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) did face greater scrutiny at the airport due to those with similar names being on the list.
In the case of conservative journalist Stephen F. Hayes, he actually found himself on the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Terrorist Watchlist, which meant he received additional scrutiny on several airline flights. In Hayes’ case, he likely ended up on the list for flying with his wife on a one-way flight into Istanbul, and then flew out of Athens for his return trip back to America. Apparently, such a trip landed him on the watch list, as one-way trips to Turkey were being made by potential jihadists going to Syria. . . .Peter Suciu, “Understanding the ‘No Fly List’ and the Second Amendment,” Gun Powder Magazine, September 6, 2021.
John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, “Multiple surveys done of criminals find that virtually no criminals obtain their guns from gun shows. In 1991 and 1997, only 0.6% and 0.7% of criminals obtained guns from gun shows. [A] 2016 survey conducted during the Obama administration found that number was still only 0.8%.”Brian McCombie, “Once Again, They Are Going After Guns Shows,” America’s 1st Freedom, Thursday, September 2, 2021
