Quote of the day—John R. Lott, Jr.

Like many other mass public shooters, the Buffalo shooter targeted defenseless people. He even wrote in his manifesto: “Attacking in a weapon-restricted area may decrease the chance of civilian backlash. Schools, courts, or areas where CCW are outlawed or prohibited many[sic] be good areas of attack. Areas where CCW permits are low may also fit in this category. Areas with strict gun laws are also great places of attack.” The national media refuses to report other explicit statements by attackers explaining why they pick the targets they do. Nor do they report the fact that 94% of mass public shootings occur in places where civilians are banned from having firearms.

Read it all, this is great material, probably best I’ve seen on the topic.

  1. We’re not supposed to make that connection, it’s all about the magic deodand.
    We’re supposed to attribute magical powers to firearms, powers not attributed (yet) to cars, hammers, gasoline in the hands of private citizens, or a host of other dangerous things.

  2. Perfect logic and facts to back it up. If we only lived in a time of logic, where facts made a difference.
    Thanks Joe, and Dr. Lott. Hopefully there are still some normies to be convinced.
