Who's Backing The Last Pro-Gun "Academic," John Lott? Twitter Facebook
John Lott On August 13, 2015, Buzzfeed published a fascinating interview with stalking victim Taylor Woolrich that revealed that prominent pro-gun "academic" John Lott had authored an op-ed in her name for Fox News entitled, "Dear Dartmouth, I Am One of Your Students, I Am Being Stalked, Please Let Me Carry a Gun to Protect Myself."
Woolrich was considering carrying a gun to protect herself at that point, and that made her an "asset" to Lott.
He urged her to reach out to the media to tell her story, and when Fox News rejected an op-ed co-authored by the two of them, Lott offered to write it on her behalf on his own, in the first person. "I don't know if I should just say yes and not piss him off," Woolrich recalls worrying, so she assented. "It was actually easier for me to write this in the first person for her than the way I had originally written it," Lott bragged to a Fox editor.
In the piece, Lott cited and praised the work of his start-up, CPRC. This was not the first time Lott seized an opportunity to shower praise on himself. Previously, he had created a personae he called "Mary Rosh" and written positive reviews about his book "More Guns, Less Crime" on Amazon. "SAVE YOUR LIFE, READ THIS BOOK - GREAT BUY!!!! wrote "Mary," who claimed to be a former student of Lott's at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School ("the best professor I ever had"). Once his deception was revealed, Lott would explain he "used a pseudonym" because "earlier postings under my name elicited threatening and obnoxious telephone calls."
Lott was so desperate for support by the time he founded CPRC that he had to resort to crowdfunding his organization on Indiegogo. And yet he was able to recruit numerous individuals to support the organization as Board Members, Academic Advisory Board Members, and Fellows. They do so knowing that CPRC produces no peer-reviewed research on the issue of gun violence. Even their own input into CPRC's work is minimal. "If they have comments, while there is no formal review by them, they let us know," Lott explained to Mother Jones.
Moody has also written about guns and has been a vigorous defender of Lott's"more guns, less crime" hypothesis.
Ramseyer has said the following about Lott: "Dispassionate, careful, empirical work is key to disentangling any social science problem, and it is the key to understanding patterns of criminal behavior.
Time and again, Dr. Lott and the Crime Prevention Research Center have shown the willingness to undertake that careful work, no matter how politically unpopular it may be.
Green and Lott have also criticized Australia's tough gun laws, which have eliminated mass shootings altogether.
Others have published in this area only as co-authors with Lott.
Why has Lott found it so hard to recruit peers to his latest pro-gun initiative?
Of course, Lott is also followed by his reputation, which continues to take hits. And now that his latest "pseudonym" has been exposed, it will be interesting to see how many of his current friends want to continue to put their name behind his latest enterprise.
I am saddened to see so many academics in the field of economics subscribe to the flawed and downright deceptive research conducted by John Lott.

More Guns, Less Crime Book by John Lott

As every gun owner in America owes John Lott a debt of gratitude. Lott is an economist and political commentator whose book, More Guns, Less Crime, makes the definitive case AGAINST "gun control" and for the private ownership of firearms.
Lott is the founder of the Crime Prevention Research Center, which Raquel Okyay called "a research and education organization that studies the relationship between laws regulating the ownership or use of guns, crime, and public safety."
Lott has worked hard, and continues to work hard, to get the word out that these "studies" (like all gun control statistics vomited forth by these anti-civil-rights groups) rely on grossly distorted figures and ridiculous leaps of logic in reaching the conclusions that that get repeated ad nauseam in the news.
Lott recently gave an interview in which he found errors like "triple counting" in the gun control data.
Lott has been endlessly vilified by liberals and "progressives," just like Kleck has, because these men provide the ammunition we, as free citizens, need to combat left-wing lies.
I applaud John Lott and I hope he continues to do his work. I hope he continues to give the liberals heartburn and I hope his statistics will fuel the defeat of progressives in many a debate for the next several years.
Thank you, John Lott, for standing with us.
