A Letter to Vin Suprynowicz from John Lott about Virginia Beach Shooting

Written by Subject: Gun Rights



Dear Vin:  

Another horrible senseless tragedy, another place where victims were prevented from defending themselves. Why do gun control advocates get to claim the banner "How many more?" Our updated information on this horrible tragedy that media is missing is available here. I am sorry that I couldn't get the information together on the Virginia Beach shooting before the email this morning, and I am still missing one fact, but I wanted to make sure that you all were well informed. If I get the remaining piece of information that confirms that the one non-employee to be killed as the one person who was killed outside the building, I will add it to the link. However, I will add that at this point I strongly suspect that it was the non-employee who was killed outside the building.

Please share our other information on the rate of mass public shootings in gun-free zones and our research on how much more common mass public shootings are in the rest of the world than in the United States.

For information on activities at the Crime Prevention Research Center, here is a link to our "info deck." (Sorry, the link didn't work last time we sent it out, but it should now.)  Please view in full-screen mode and scroll using the arrow buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Thank you very much for your continued interest and support. It means a lot for the work that we need to do.
