What Every Mass Shooting, Except One, Since 1950 Has in Common

John Fund has a very interesting piece over at National Review online, The Facts of About Mass Shootings. In it, he mentions a post-Sandy Hook shooting conversation he had with frequent Teri O’Brien Show guest, Professor John Lott.

Economists John Lott and William Landes conducted a groundbreaking study in 1999, and found that a common theme of mass shootings is that they occur in places where guns are banned and killers know everyone will be unarmed, such as shopping malls and schools.

I spoke with Lott after the Newtown shooting, and he confirmed that nothing has changed to alter his findings. He noted that the Aurora shooter, who killed twelve people earlier this year, had a choice of seven movie theaters that were showing the Batman movie he was obsessed with. All were within a 20-minute drive of his home. The Cinemark Theater the killer ultimately chose wasn’t the closest, but it was the only one that posted signs saying it banned concealed handguns carried by law-abiding individuals. All of the other theaters allowed the approximately 4 percent of Colorado adults who have a concealed-handgun permit to enter with their weapons.

“Disarming law-abiding citizens leaves them as sitting ducks,” Lott told me. “A couple hundred people were in the Cinemark Theater when the killer arrived. There is an extremely high probability that one or more of them would have had a legal concealed handgun with him if they had not been banned.”

Lott offers a final damning statistic: “With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.” (emphasis mine)

Purely a coincidence, I’m sure, which is probably why I haven’t heard this fact before in the hundreds of hours of Lame Stream Media coverage about the Sandy Hook shootings.

Peggy Noonan Has Been Wrong a Lot, but She’s Right Today: America Doesn’t Date Losers

Play

Check out this weekend’s Noonan column, ”When Americans Saw the Real Obama,” in which she explains that if Barack Obama loses the election, the reason will be his performance in the first debate. From the column:

Nothing echoes out like that debate. It was the moment that allowed Mr. Romney to break through, that allowed dismay with the incumbent to coalesce, that allowed voters to consider the alternative. What the debate did to the president is what the Yankees’ 0-4 series against the Tigers did at least momentarily, to the team’s relationship with their city. “Dear Yankees, We don’t date losers. Signed, New Yorkers” read the Post’s headline. America doesn’t date losers either.…

 

What he couldn’t do was present himself, when everyone was looking, as smaller than you thought. Petulant, put upon, above it all, full of himself. He couldn’t afford to make himself look less impressive than the challenger in terms of command, grasp of facts, size.

But that’s what he did.

And in some utterly new way the president was revealed, exposed. All the people whose job it is to surround and explain him, to act as his buffers and protectors—they weren’t there. It was him on the stage, alone with a competitor. He didn’t have a teleprompter, and so his failure seemed to underscore the cliché that the prompter is a kind of umbilical cord for him, something that provides nourishment, the thing he needs to sound good. He is not by any means a stupid man but he has become a boring one; he drones, he is predictable, it’s never new. The teleprompter adds substance, or at least safety.

She writes that all the efforts to explain the disaster that the first debate for the One may be over thinking the situation.

Maybe what happened isn’t a mystery at all.

That, anyway, is the view expressed this week by a member of the U.S. Senate who served there with Mr Obama and has met with him in the White House. People back home, he said, sometimes wonder what happened with the president in the debate. The senator said, I paraphrase: I sort of have to tell them that it wasn’t a miscalculation or a weird moment. I tell them: I know him, and that was him. That guy on the stage, that’s the real Obama.

I can confirm that statement. People who were in Springfield when Obama was in the Illinois State Senate, and had the chance to interact with him, have said the same thing. He was a dismissive, arrogant, thin-skinned, lecturing, pompous empty suit. He hasn’t changed.

Recall what Professor John Lott said on the Teri O’Brien Show about trying to have a civil conversation with him about their disagreements over the 2nd amendment. Here’s the audio:

J. Lott-Obama Never Wanted to Debate

Ms. Noonan concludes by referencing Bob Woodward’s new book, “The Price of Politics.”

Mr. Woodward’s portrait of the president is not precisely new—it has been drawn in other ways in other accounts, and has been a staple of D.C. gossip for three years now—but it is vivid and believable. And there’s probably a direct line between that portrait and the Obama seen in the first debate. Maybe that’s what made it so indelible, and such an arc-changer.

People saw for the first time an Obama they may have heard about on radio or in a newspaper but had never seen.

They didn’t see some odd version of the president. They saw the president.

And they didn’t like what they saw, and that would linger.

Yes, it has lingered. As my very wise late grandma used to say, when it’s bred in the bone, you can’t beat it out with a stick.

That “like ability” that supposedly so many saw has evaporated, and with it, the One’s re-election chances.

The Truth About What Obama “Inherited:” Prof. John Lott, Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

As our economy continues to stagnate despite record levels of debt, and the Obama administration stubbornly pursues policies that suffocate economic growth, he and his surrogates have ramped up their rhetoric, whining that the One cannot be blamed for his failures. “It’s not his fault! It’s what he inherited!” they wail. Our guest Professor John Lott has written a new book with Grover Norquist that demolishes these lame attempts to deflect responsibility for the consequences of Barack Obama’s ideologically-driven policies. He’ll join us to discuss Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future.

The GOP’s “War on Women” continues. How else can anyone explain their opposition to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act? “How can anyone be against violence against women?” the average distracted citizen no doubt thinks. Except this law isn’t about preventing violence against women. It’s about doing violence to not only our Constitution, but to securing our borders. How can that be? Listen and find out.

Remember that great audio from Detroit, featuring some Obama voters looking for free stuff from “Obama’s stash?” We’ll hear more unashamed freeloaders tell you why they, and their “baby mommas,” deserve to live on your dime.

Will Mitt land a knockout punch in Illinois on Tuesday? Can he beat Barack Obama? We’ll ask Eric Kohn of the Chicago Tea Party.

Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.

Sound Familiar, Governor Brewer?

This morning, the media is abuzz over  Barack Obama’s tarmac kerfuffle with Gov. Jan Brewer yesterday. Apparently, the One is not amused with something in the governor’s book, Breakfast with Scorpions. From Politico:

“I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt,” she said, according to a pool report. “He didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn’t get my sentence finished. Anyway, we’re glad he’s here. I’ll regroup.” …

The pool reporter, POLITICO’s Carrie Budoff Brown, said the scene was far from the norm. Aside from the pointing, they appeared to talk over each other and he appeared to walk away from her while they were still talking.

Brewer said the president brought up the book.

I couldn’t help but remember our interview last year with Prof. John Lott, author of More Guns, Less Crime.

Prof. Lott is currently at Yale, but for a time he was at University of Chicago, at the same time that Barack Obama was an adjunct lecturer. He told us that the one thing that impressed him about Obama was “his unwillingness to talk to people he disagreed with.” He goes on to describe two encounters with the former Illinois State Senator, both of which ended with Obama rudely turning his back on Prof. Lott and walking away.
