Links embedded at John Lott's site. I know, saying that "progressives lie is like saying water is wet. But, they must be confronted with their lies and discredited, or they become "facts" that we have to discredit again, and again.

A significant power of the new media is to debunk lies and promote truth.

A very wise post that needs to be taken to heart and put into practice.

We are where we are because we have not done as you suggest.

“Yet, with Fort Hood, soldiers are actually forbidden from carrying around guns on army bases...”

Pretty much correct. There were few times when I was allowed to carry a weapon with ammunition. Two cases, when I was a payroll officer and only carried when picking up payroll cash or on the firing range. At other times, I’ve carried a weapon but did not have ammunition. This was for tactical exercises. The Army is a real stickler for keeping weapons and ammunition out of soldiers hands except for combat, training, or special details like payroll or some guards. It’s mostly for safety reasons.

” In some countries where an increase in gun homicides followed a gun ban, it was part of an already rising trend, as it was in England. In other cases it followed the ban. In short, there is no causal relationship; the relationship is spurious. “

In other words guns don’t cause violent crime.

John Lott always backs his pro gun discussions with actual statistics and logic. He is the gold standard as to refuting the lies about guns and violence in America. The left wants to shift the discussion to guns when lack of personal responsibility and morals are involved. We deplore violence and know it is hard to control, yet a good person with a gun is sometimes needed to confront a bad person who is doing bad with a gun or other lethal weapon.

First, we know that students all over America carry guns to schools every day, so schools are not really gun free.

Huh? What sort of argument is that?

Second, Fort Hood is a military base with lots of guns,

And the area where the shootings occured was a gun free zone for all but Military Police.

[A]nd Virginia Tech is a university with its own police force.

Again, the students weren't allowed to carry, making it a gun-free zone.
