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.
