    Have you guys heard of this guy? I'm re-listening to one of his books on audible. His books are fact filled and..kinda boring, but he is an economist who researches guns, crime, and gun control and accurately refutes every gun control argument there is with facts and specifics. From both his own research and gun control proponents research, and exposes the sources and bias in many gun crime studies.

    John Lott has been one of the best academic voices that we have had for a long time.
    He published "More guns less crime" 20 years ago

    Most aware 2A folks know who he is, or at least SHOULD know who he is and his work.

    Yeah, he uses Federal Crime States and US Govt data to prove his points, so the lefties can't dispute his findings

    Lott has a web page you can sign up on that will give you updates on his posts. You can also find YouTube videos with him defending the 2nd Amendment.

    Yeah, but I've seen interviews with Larry Elder, Dennis Prager, and a few others, and when John Lott's name comes up, the leftists are always trying to dispute his findings. Facts mean nothing to the leftists. At the end of their day, they're right and you're wrong.

    Oh that's for sure, that's what's great about debating them in a public forum, when you pull out irrefutable facts they either disappear or throw a childish tissy fit. Also it strokes the inner sadist
    still love his books even if the libs call him mean names

    The name sounded familiar when I read the title.
    I must have read some of his stuff over the past 4 decades.

    Sounds like the kind of reasoning we need over here.

    I wrote a review of his More Guns, Less Crime book in an English class in college. If A kid did that today they would probably be expelled and arrested by campus police.
