John Lott 💥 gun control organizations are blaming me for mass public shootings in the United States, with an organization calling for me to be put in prison

Crime Prevention Research Center



Dear John:

Happy Thanksgiving!

The CPRC's Kerry Slone has her first op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on the Rahimi case that the Supreme Court just heard. Over the next week, we will be posting the interviews she has been doing on her piece, but here is one she did with Ed Martin on the Pro America Report.

I also had a piece on the Supreme Court's oral arguments at Real Clear Politics, and I did radio interviews the Sebastian Gorka'sBill Martinez'sSteve Malzberg's, and Armed American Radio's national radio shows and Vicki McKenna's show that covers Wisconsin and Cincinnati's WLW. Armed American Radio had me on for an hour, and I thought the discussion went particularly wellAmerica's Voice Live television show also had me on to discuss the court case. I talked about the Lewiston, Maine mass murder on Philadelphia's WPHTOregon's Bill Meyer ShowWisconsin's Vicki McKenna Show, and Armed American Radio

For those looking for something humorous, more gun control organizations are blaming me for mass public shootings in the United States, with an organization calling for me to be put in prison

My talk at Tufts University on how gun control laws discriminate against minorities and the poor is available here. Tufts had set up a debate with Boston University's well-known gun control advocate, Mark Siegel. They had even had him agree to a date, but when they told him that they had gotten me to debate him, he discovered that the date he had agreed to had a conflict. Unfortunately, Siegel was unavailable for other dates, and none of the other academics that Tufts contacted in the Boston area were available.

Yesterday, I testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. There were lively exchanges, and I hope to post the testimony in my next email.

We have also continued collecting cases where people legally carrying guns in public have stopped crimes. Here are the cases that we collected for August

On a positive development, Jews in New York and South Florida are flocking to get concealed handgun permits.

There is some good news. We are starting our end-of-the-year fundraising, and we have a chance to receive two different matching donations. The first generous offer from Joseph Olson, a retired law school professor in Minnesota, means we will receive up to $10,000 for new donors who help us out over the next month. However, there are a couple of restrictions before we get this money: 1) the contributions must come from people who haven't previously donated to us, and 2) Olson will match donations up to $200. That means for us to receive all $10,000 we will have to get 30 gifts of $500 or, say, 15 donations of $1,000 or some other similar breakdown. The other matching donation is from an anonymous donor and is unrestricted. Any donations up to the first $15,000 we receive will be matched dollar for dollar.

This means that each dollar donated from new donors up to $200 will be tripled, and all other donations up to $15,000 will be doubled.

I try not to bother you all more than twice a year, and your support is incredibly important for the work that we need to do. And I want you to know how much we greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you very much.
