Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime" Hypothesis Has Been Widely Discredited
In fact, it hasn't. Hacks and their opinions don't really matter.
Just go ask the people who are dying by droves in cities where guns don't exist. Chicago would be a good start.
Read this gun nutters.
There's a lot more debunking of your hero Lott to come.
This guy is a joke.
Criminals would NEVER commit a criminal act on someone that is unarmed. Everyone knows that they target people with their own guns.
And from England:
Great Britain has a problem. Kind of like Chicago.
Gun crime in Britain is up 600% since 1978.
More guns caused this! morons would say.
Well, in the late 1990s, Britain banned handguns and severely restricted long guns. The numbers of guns in the hands of British subjects (not citizens
as armed men are citizens) are way down.
Crime since the Dunblane massacre ban on weapons has more than doubled!
Great Britain: How’s that gun control working for ya? | GunsSaveLife.com
Guns have been around since the founding of this country, it was the gun that was used to help separate the US from the British.
Now, two hundred plus years later the gun is now a problem.
The gun hasn't changed, society has, maybe we need to look at the cause instead of looking at symptom.
People don't kill people because of guns, the gun is the weapon, take away the gun and they will use something else, maybe have many more bombings?
Knee jerk reactions are not needed, getting to the root of the problem is.
Lott is a fraud.
Fantasy stats have been flushed.
I hope every journalist that interviews him has copies of all the articles debunking him.
Don't you dare debunk Lott. Think of the economic cost of all the lost gun sales.
And don't listen to the people talking about Sandy Hook!!!! You do realize that those twenty were part of the 47% that do not pay taxes and just soak up taxpayer money, don't you?
