John Lott on U.S. gun laws: “The background check system itself is basically racist”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

John Lott is the author of the classic study, "More Guns, Less Crime." He joined me after the Orlando terrorist attack to debunk the idea that America needs more gun control in order to prevent such a crime from happening again.

Lott says that in fact, regulations making it difficult to own firearms for self-protection hurt the poor and minorities, who are also society's most vulnerable.

Such common sense. Advertise to the world that you are in a gun free zone is asking for trouble. Can you imagine doing that in a guarded compound in Nigeria? You would be swarmed with Muslims with hours.

Prof Lott’s empirical peer-reviewed firearms research will be an eternal needle in the anti-gun propaganda balloon.

FACT: Armed civilians reduce crime and save lives.

Well Mr. Blow ,your commentary is totally valid but I fear it is falling on deaf ears.

I like this one: If Islam is a religion of peace then why are not Islamic Extremists extremely peaceful?

Great points.

It’s not a gun control problem.
Its an Islam control problem.
Islam IS the PROBLEM.
It is NOT a religion of peace.
It was a religion of peace, until it became a religion of JIHAD.
It no longer is a religion of peace.
These people are incompatible with any other culture.
Those that have grown beyond the radical aspect are welcome
to live amongst us if they embrace our laws and culture.
If they don’t want to do that, then remain in your own country.

U.S. is one of the last countries in the world where the people are able to protect
themselves from a tyrannical govt. trojan horse takeover (Let’s say a forced Muslim migrant policy maybe?) They have more of a need than ever to exercise their right to bear arms to protect themselves from a fomented and forced onslaught of a culture that wants to either conquer and convert or eviscerate them and the rest of the world.

The trojan horse part is appealing to their good nature to help the ‘migrant’ oblivious to the fact that most if not all of these ‘migrants’ are highly brainwashed by a religion that is incompatible with any other culture. It is incompatible because it believes that it MUST convert or destroy everyone in the world. Our leaders know this and are following a very specific plan to take over our own culture.

Being that Obunghole was sworn in on a koran and is acting as a facilitator in chief of a Islamic invasion of the people he supposedly represents he has no business whatsoever attempting to take Trump to task over his own unwillingness to say “Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorism” In fact, pretending that using or not using those words makes no difference is to deflect from the fact that he IS IN FACT championing the invasion and being its chief apologist. This is proved out by his directives not to allow the mosque where the Orlando shooter’s Imam called for killing gays, endless assaults on Christianity and by his choice for high level appointments within his administration. The following is borrowed from a poster on another site. A far better writer than I and more informed on this topic. He requested this be shared, and rightly so.
People are stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim! Do
hope this wakes up some!

Until it hits you like a ton of bricks read it again, until you understand!

We now have a Muslim government in the US!

John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in
Saudi Arabia.

Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where
her parents still live.

Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and
brother are still involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt!

Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif
Aikhan, is a Muslim .

Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim .

Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam
al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North
America is a Muslim .

Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a
Muslim .
Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, a Muslim ,
as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent
Select Committee on Intelligence, of all things! It would make Carson the
first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the
threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has he suggested that
U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is
based on the Quran!!!

Last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.

It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he
was sworn in. He did not repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and
our Constitution. Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again,
in private. Yeah, right.

CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a

Valarie Jarret wrote her college thesis on how she wanted to change America
into a Muslim friendly nation and she is a Obama top advisor!

Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an, NOT the

Conservative Congresswoman Michele Bachman, R-MN, was vilified and verbally
tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims
taking over our government!

Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his
minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim
groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to
the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle

The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!

Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to
destroy us! It can only get worse!

In his book Obama said, “if it comes down to it, I will side with the

If you fail to pass this one on, there’s something wrong……somewhere!

Back ground checks are absolutely necessary prior to being able to possess any firearm regardless of the cost. However the government cannot be allowed to gouge the public with an exhorbitant fee for the purpose of disuading gun purchases.

If any Anti-Gun , Gun Phobia afflicted person is not convinced by now, that a law abiding , well trained public, armed with concealed carry is the best defence against an attack like Orlando then nothing will wake up these babies out of their Politically Correct, dumbed-down sleep the MSM have put them in.
