    interesting little tidbit I came across while reading 'more guns less crime'.

    Lott never owned a gun before researching and writing this book, and his wife was actually quite anti-gun. After writing the book, Lott immediately bought a gun.

    How has he represented gun owners?

    I haven't read any of his books so I don't know.

    Interesting.

    But i think his stats are as skewed as the anti-gun stats. No side has good proof of their point it seems :hs:

    Yup I agree, but I don't view it as a bad thing. If the truth is that gun laws don't actually have an effect on crime, I'd be happy to report that even, but each side has an agenda to push. I suspect it could actually statistically be a wash.
