Breitbart, June 30, 2019

Democrat presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell claims his confiscatory “assault weapons” ban would have prevented the December 14, 2012, assault on Sandy Hook Elementary Faculty.

He made this declare in response to a tweet by John Lott, whereby Lott requested why Swalwell was pushing gun controls that “wouldn’t have stopped one mass public capturing this century”:

Swalwell responded, “Who needs to inform John Lott that if my assault weapons ban and buy-back had been in place earlier than Sandy Hook or Parkland, those youngsters wouldn’t have been killed?”

Swalwell’s declare overlooks numerous necessary details. . . .

Every day Journal (Johnson County, Indiana), June 20, 2019

. . . Paul Helmke, a former Indiana mayor reinvented as a Beltway crusader for the Brady Middle/Brady Marketing campaign to Forestall Gun Violence, has by no means seen a gun demise that he didn’t like as a rhetorical level. Now he’s again, working at Indiana College and mounting a grassroots campaign to throw out native officers who don’t share his tackle the difficulty.

“The Indiana Legislature has preempted native governments from doing anything immediately on guns,” the previous progressive tells the sympathetic Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. “What do our native candidates consider that? Are they prepared to push for more local management, or a minimum of stronger state gun legal guidelines?”

We might refer the mayor to John Lott, an actual professional on crime and gun violence with numbers to back up his arguments, but Helmke already has lost a national debate to Lott — embarrassingly, some thought. So let me converse for the hundreds of Hoosiers who have lost pricey ones to non-gun crimes, killed of their houses, strangled or crushed to demise, intimidated by thugs, all without relevance to the mayor’s narrative. . . .

Three years ago, Vincent Smith, a metropolis engineer in Virginia Seashore, Virginia, noticed a niche within the safety measures protecting city staff: “The gap was not permitting staff to hold a firearm,” he stated. “As an alternative, individuals have been pressured — like I’m day-after-day — to choose between incomes a dwelling and saving my life.”

So he created a petition demanding that the town council reverse its “gun-free zone” policies. He acquired 259 signers, and it went nowhere.

Now, he has tried again. . . .

John Lott agrees. In a Fox Information op-ed last week, Lott, the founder and president of the Crime Prevention Research Middle, wrote: “This attack might have ended with much much less bloodshed.… Nevertheless, the town bans individuals, together with public staff, from possessing ‘any weapon’ on metropolis property.”

Actually, if his current research of faculty shootings since 2000 may be applied to municipal workplace buildings as properly, there wouldn’t have been any bloodshed in any respect.

Media Analysis Middle, June 21, 2019

Collectivists in Britain and elsewhere tell us they need to curb “gun violence”, in order that they cross statutes to inform law-abiding people who they are going to be unable to legally own a private firearm, or to tell them will probably be very troublesome to take action, seemingly unaware that folks with legal intent are already predisposed to breaching the statutes and could care less, and unaware that, as John Lott has noted, more guns within the arms of people is strongly correlated to decrease violent crime charges, and the US Facilities for Disease Control has shown that gun house owners use firearms 3.6 occasions more typically to stop crimes than to interact in them. . . .

“It might have been nice if one of the debate moderators had asked a troublesome question on weapons.
