Only the Crime Prevention Research Center stands between you and millions of dollars in paid anti gun research propaganda.
Colorado – -(Ammoland.com)- Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, Barack Obama, and numerous leftist foundations have begun “planting” academics in universities with the sole purpose to write “scholarly public health studies” that profess guns are dangerous to children, their owners and our country.
This should send a chill up your spine. Academics are now being paid to take aim at the 2nd Amendment and their willing counterparts in the media are waiting on pins and needles to broadcast their fantasy statistics and study conclusions.
Brace yourself! Hundreds of millions of dollars are being poured into this new venture. Soros and company are planning to rapid fire the release of these public health studies, along with new lawsuits and court challenges. The mainstream academic world will not come out and counter these studies through peer review. Fear and lies will be encapsulated in the “scientific studies”, the religion of the 21st century. Remember,, no one can speak against “science.”
Luckily, John Lott, well known scholar, author and 2nd Amendment champion, is awake and on to their new scheme. In order to shine the light of truth on what’s really going on in America and around the world, Dr. Lott has recently formed a new organization: Crime Prevention Research Center (CrimeResearch.org).
The sole purpose of Crime Prevention Research Center will be to release actual truthful statistical studies on gun ownership and gun use.
Additionally, he and the staff he trains will analyze the studies produced by the gun control academics and provide the Pro-Truth citizens, legislators, and media with information needed to counter the impact.
These so called “studies” by the anti-gunners will:
- Attempt to convince Americans that they are actually too irresponsible to own and operate a gun.
- Attempt to convince Americans that gun ownership will lead to the death of their loved ones through accidental shootings and suicides.
- Attempt to convince Americans that you, the Pro-Truth gun owners, are dangerous
But distorting or misrepresenting statistics doesn’t change the truth. And restricting or discouraging gun ownership will actually lead to more deaths. John Lott at the Crime Prevention Research Center showed that scary conclusion. Disarming law-abiding Americans means people will become sitting ducks in their own homes, with people unable to defend their loved ones or themselves.
And gun owners – contrary to main stream media advice – should not unquestioningly store their guns locked and unloaded. That just defeats the whole purpose of being ready at a moment’s notice.
The media coverage is usually abysmal. Take a study that just came out in the journal Pediatrics. It received massive news coverage. ABC News alone saturated its news programs with the alleged danger of gun ownership, all the while putting children at risk. During just one day, it started with a segment on “Good Morning America,” then came a report on the evening news, and ended with an entire hour devoted to the subject on “20/20.”
They certainly made it sound scary:
“Looking at children and guns, the most recent statistics from 2009. And take a look tonight, they are eye opening. The new numbers are arresting. . . . . 7,391 children rushed to the hospital every year because of those gun injuries, so often accidents in the home. 453 of those children die at the hospital. . . .”
But contrary to the impression created by the news coverage these injuries are not young kids who accidentally fire their parents’ gun and hurt themselves. Indeed, the vast majority of these injuries are young adults, falsely classified as “children.”
Consider this reality:
- 76 percent of these injuries were for 17, 18, and 19 year olds.
- 62 percent were the result of criminal assaults.
- The injury rate for these older black males was 13 times higher and for white males.
These deaths of older males from criminal assaults are tragic, no doubt. But they are largely a result of drug gang fights. And, yes, we need to better deal with the drug issue and gangs. But scaring law-abiding Americans into not owning guns won’t reduce this gang violence.
As the graph above illustrates, funding from the likes of Bloomberg and Soros has lead to an explosion in biased, anti-gun research.
Unfortunately, the flood is just beginning.
- In 2012, Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $250 million to Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health to hire 40 new professors whose major objective is research on gun violence.
- Last year, the Obama Administration met with 23 large foundations to organize a push for national gun control. They included such left wing groups as George Soros' Open Society Institute.
- President Obama has also been directing tens of millions of dollars in federal government money towards gun control projects.
- Still other funds are being set up, such as the Fund for a Safer Future, with a still growing $16 million war chest to fund gun control research.
It usually takes several years for these studies to be completed. And that just means many studies will come out just in time for the 2016 Presidential election.
Our side doesn’t have hundreds of millions of dollars to fund research, all we have is the truth. But we can’t let these studies go completely unanswered. We need to be able to explain to people why this research is misleading and how their policies are the ones that really endanger people’s lives.
Unfortunately, this task is made all the more difficult because while the media gives wall to wall coverage for Bloomberg or Soros or Obama funded studies, they would completely ignore anything that is put out or funded by our side.
There is a solution. I want you to consider donating to a brand new organization called The Crime Prevention Research Center. John Lott heads the center. He is the author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” a book that has made a huge difference in the national gun control debate.
Lott knows his stuff. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from UCLA and has held research or teaching positions at various academic institutions including the University of Chicago, Yale University, the Wharton Business School, and Stanford University. He was the chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission during 1998-1999. He has written extensively as a columnist at Fox News and someone who frequently appears in the national media. His op-ed pieces have appeared in such places as the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, New York News Day, and the Chicago Tribune.
John Whitley joins Lott. Whitley, who has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago, has also published extensively on the gun control issue in academic journals. He was the Director of Program Analysis and Evaluation at the Department of Homeland Security from 2008 to 2010.
The Crime Prevention Research Center guys sure know the numbers. And they know the people on the other side and what is at stake. Barack Obama and Lott both taught at the University of Chicago Law School, and Obama told Lott flat out: “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”
The Crime Prevention Research Center know how freedom and safety go together. The can explain the lies and the tricks put out by the other side. But they need our help. Let’s help them fight for us. Please donate today! http://crimepreventionresearchcenter.org/donate/
