    I have the Penn & Teller Bullshit episode on Gun Control. It's 28 minutes long and worth a watch. They have 2 anti's, 2 pro's, and one in-between guy on the show discussing points (I think one of the pros is John Lott, but I'm not sure).

    I haven't watched it in a while so I can't remember all the points they make, but I remember enjoying watching it. :dunno:

    Anyone interested? I'll upload it if so.

    I'm not a big john lott fan, but it was entertaining as most of them are. Its a great way to get people hear suzanna hupp speak about her experience.

    Penn & Teller Bullshit is absofuckinglutely great.

    If you're libertarian you'll love the show. Hell, lately Jeremy Clarkson has started to sound like Penn & Teller.

    I think his argument is crap and gets gun owners trying to make the wrong points. We should be smart enough to know that firearms do make decisions for criminals, either for or against crime. Crime is driven by a huge array of socio-economic factors, not if someone has a gun or if someone on the street has a gun. He attempts to use correlation to prove causation and it won't work. Gun owners should focus on the easily stastically provable and accurate facts like the incredibly low conviction rates of permit holders and the natural right to self defense. We don't need to make others think we make the world a safer place, we just need to show them that we aren't responsible for crime and remind them that people deserve to be able to defend themselves. Its the much more sound argument.

    Lott also comes with some baggage of seriously unacademic activities, see Mary Rosh.

    Can't hear shit captain. I've got all the volume cranked all the way up and can still barely understand anything.

    Oh well, I guess I can wait and watch it at home.

    That was an amazing show.
