On the way home yesterday, I listened to an NPR interview on concealed carry guns with a Stanford Law School Professor named John Donohue.
He contended that violent crime had gone up in states that had passed concealed carry laws.
13% over ten years.
The interviewer seemed to take everything the professor said has holy writ.
I wondered what John Lott would say.
You can read his critique of Donohue’s research here.
When I told my wife of the unbalanced nature of the story, she said, “That’s why I don’t listen to NPR.”
