    Hi everybody,

    In taking a Public Speaking course at the U, we were allowed to choose our topics for our final speech. I chose gun control.
    I was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction for research. Things like crime statistics (especially in DC), laws, and statistics of legal vs. illegal handguns used in crime.

    Thanks!

    John Lott wrote a few books a while ago entitled, More Guns, Less Crime and The Bias Against Guns which would most likely be at your library. You can also check out his website. You can also check out his past articles. Hopefully this has been helpful.

    Let us know how it turns out. In fact, get a recording if you can. Make sure to record the classes reactions too...

    Here is a link to a study done by the FBI on criminals who attacked cops and their weapons.



    Some really good stuff here.

    I'll be giving the speech Monday night at class...

    I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to give me permission to use their negative experience with LEOs as an example of ignorance towards the 2nd Constitutional Amendment and Utah Gun Laws. And I wanted permission to use some of the photos posted of the group meetings and OC photos.

    I will record at least audio, post my outlines, sources and written speech, and post the powerpoint that I will be using as a visual aid.

    This is going to be great... At least I hope so.
