SHOOTING BLANKS
By JOHN R. LOTT JR. 

THE NEW YORK POST

December 29, 2004 -- THIS month the National Academy of Sciences
issued a 328-page report on gun-control laws. The big news is
that the academy's panel couldn't identify any benefits of the
decades-long effort to reduce crime and injury by restricting
gun ownership. The only conclusion it could draw was: Let's
study the question some more (presumably, until we find the
results we want).

The academy, however, should believe its own findings. Based on
253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, a
survey that covered 80 different gun-control measures and some
of its own empirical work, the panel couldn't identify a single
gun-control regulation that reduced violent crime, suicide or
accidents.

.. "virtually every reanalysis done by the committee" confirmed
right-to-carry laws reduced crime.
