It is quite flattering that Media Matters and TPM spent so much real estate going after me. Media Matters post was at the top of their front page from late morning on Friday until at least midnight (my last check). [UPDATE: As of 2:15 PM on Saturday, their article has been at the very top of their front page for over an entire day.]
John Lotts debate on MSNBC is available here (April 4, 2014 from 10:05 to 10:14 AM (this version has almost the entire exchange, though it doesnt include Chris Jansings introduction and first question)).
Unfortunately, Media Matters, TPM, and others only have a fraction of the total discussion. While Media Matters posts 5:05 minutes and TPM posts 2:31 minutes, the entire segment is over 9 minutes. Possibly Media Matters and TPM just wanted to protect their views from my arguments, but neither of those clips show my initial points that tried to explain the logical argument. More importantly, they left out how many times Jacobs kept repeating the claim that somehow I or others were advocating everyone be armed (including, bizarrely, possibly according to him dependents, meaning children). This claim about trying to have everyone carry guns reminds me of the same hyperbole frequently made in the concealed handgun debate for civilians. It is just a way of trying to freak people out. . . .

Media Matters lied? I’m shocked! Are you shocked? Because I’m shocked!
I am NOT a “civilian”, I am a CITIZEN!
I may live just North of you, but I will not be a slave to the jbt’s.
Death to all tyrants!
