The Examiner on-line newspapers have provided forum for a bevy of authors who write on Second Amendment and firearms policy issues. There are plenty of good writers among them, but my favorite is Howard Nemerov, who writes for the Austin Examiner. Howard´s columns are often data-rich (such as his latest piece, on the failures of police protection in Chicago). He is no mere commentator, but instead works hard to research the facts and advance the story. Among his recent articles are an admirably calm piece on the Interpol controversy, and an examination of international data in which shows that there is no relationship between gun ownership rates and suicide rates. Howard is also my co-author of the Texas Review of Law & Politics article, Is There a Relationship between Guns and Freedom? Comparative Results from 59 Nations.
