Gun Control


Archive of my postings on gun control

Over the past few years I've posted quite a few articles to talk.politics.guns on gun control. I've selected some of them, organized them by topic and created an archive of them.

The John Lott controversy

Pro-gun researcher John Lott is involved in several controversies, most notably for apparently faking a survey that he claims found that merely brandishing a gun was sufficient 98% to frighten criminal away, and for coding errors in the data for his claim that concealed carry laws reduced crime, errors, which when corrected caused his claim to evaporate. I have a blog that tracks controversy. I also have a critique of his claims about concealed carry laws.
