It's sad that neither Eric nor the host understand what "automatic weapon" means, or that they are already heavily regulated, or that legally-owned automatic weapons are almost never used to commit crime.

Nice to see an interviewer that lets both sides finish their thoughts!

Great job Mr. Lott.

John,

First, I just don't understand how the media twists every tragedy with a gun involved into a gun control debate. It doesn't happen with anything else.

President Obama just signed an order stating that if a Predator Drone attack will kill less than 50 civilians, there is no need for authorization. Why is there no debate on drone control?

If car accidents kill and injure hundreds of thousands of people in this country alone every year, why is there no debate on car control? Speed control? Or road safety?

The fact of the matter is, Jared murdered and injured innocent human beings. Those that twist this around into the state trying to illegally curtail our liberties because of 1 person out of 300 million is just plain sick.

Why isn't that a debate? Mentally stunted power hungry people running around trying to turn a tragic criminal event into an opportunity to expand the state's ability to lord over its subjects?

Is it even possible for a news outlet to even have a debate on anything without injecting visual information that attempts to influence the viewer thereby negating the viewpoints of targeted guest(s), while supporting the views of others?

What is so difficult in allowing the views expressed to be judged without an attempt to influence the outcome of said debate? Can it be fear?
