    What Not To Learn From Europe: More Gun Control
    By John R. Lott, Jr.
    Author, Freedomnomics/Senior Research Scientist, University of Maryland

    Inevitably, the massacres in Germany and Alabama over the last two days have produced more calls for gun control. Already the attack in Alabama is being used to call for a new assault weapons ban, even though there are no published academic studies by economists or criminologists showing that the previous ban reduced violent crime.

    The Alabama shooting spree left 11 people murdered, as the killer went from one house to another shooting members of his family and others inside. Three victims were shot from the window of the killer?s moving car.

    At least 9 students and 3 teachers were killed at the public school near Stuttgart Germany. Three other people were killed at other locations.
