    Don't know whether to laugh or cry.

    Bought a used copy of The Bias Against Guns by John R. Lott, Jr. from an internet reseller. The theme is why almost everything you've heard about gun control is wrong. It came today and is in perfect condition. It looks like it has never been opened and the cover doesn't even have shelf wear. This book was published in 2003.

    Stamp inside says Chicago Public Library, 400 South State Street, Chicago, IL 60605.

    Must it be because of the title or because of where it was???

    Given the quality of their public education system, is anything at their library ever read??

    I think you should email John Lott and let him know. He might get a kick out of it!

    Thanks very much for the note, Jim. That is quite an interesting story about the Chicago Public Library. I greatly appreciate you sharing BTW, in case you are interested, the third edition of More Guns, Less Crime will be out in April.
