    Good book, but hardcore gun haters don't care about facts. Guns feel dangerous, not criminals.


    People on the fents you can convince, but not people who are anti-gun, sadly.

    I find actually taking someone out to a range and letting them handle and shoot a gun works better than trying to beat their emotional blabber with facts and figures, but his books look pretty interesting. I noticed Amazon has a few of his.

    i agree that is the best way to "convert" someone. the is the best thing a gun owner can do to get someone to turn their views around :hs:

    its a little over 300 pages.. it costs me $3 at a gun show :wiggle:

    and I just started it.. its overflowing with numbers and great research.. somewhat of an advanced read with so much research and statistics.. but its very entertaining as well, John Lott is an economist, and relates much of his findings to economics, which is very efficient at times.

    theres a few copies on half.com for $5-10..

    wayne lapierre (nra vp) also has some great books, that are a bit easier to read than john lotts, and john lotts "more guns less crime" is cited often in lapierre's books..

    the two I read are "Guns Crime and Freedom" and "Guns, Freedom and Terrorism"

    :hsugh:

    dont ask me why he chose the titles he did, but theyre both great books

    Whats the difference between Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime" and "The Bias Against Guns: Why Almost Everything You've Heard About Gun Control is Wrong?
