The Truth About Crime Rates From 18-20 Year Olds

John Lott, founder and CEO of the Crime Prevention Research Center, takes on a “fact” now being used by gun-control groups, and all the media members who repeat their “facts” without challenging them, that 18-20 year olds are particularly dangerous.

Gun-control groups, and politicians who want to ban and onerously restrict gun ownership, want people to believe that 18-20 year olds are particularly apt to commit crimes because they want to ban gun sales to this group; after all, if they can’t have complete gun bans, then they try for incremental steps in that direction.

Lott also, talks about the U.S. Supreme Court, where they stand on our freedom and what might happen as the justices on this court age.
