I know the research in this area very well, and Lott’s research is consistently debunked. Also, I certainly don’t read popular books for my scientific information!!! He’s also been involved in several scandals which undermine his credibility.

Incidentally, Lott advocates that even in households with children families should keep their guns loaded and unlocked because you need to have them available to defend yourself. He advocates this because of his own (albeit poor) research he conducted on the topic. If you want to tout this guy, then go ahead.

I happened upon this forum by accident, and felt it necessary to correct the misinformation in the original post. I don’t know the members of this forum and if they don’t think critically or hold to rigid idealogies (it’s useless and very time-consuming to have a discussion with these people from my experience) so forgive me if I check out of the conversation from this point on. I have a busy life! Thanks.

Nice hit and run. I know you did not check out and are watching this for responses. Oh, you know the research very well in this area. Oh, you have a busy life. Oh, you need to correct misinformation. Your busy life is spent in your mom’s basement. Go back to pretending you are Manti’s girlfriend.

You probably know the greatest fear a home invasion robber has, right? It is the sound of a round going into the chamber of a shotgun.

My guess, Andrew, is that you would not put a sign in your yard saying that THIS IS A GUN FREE ZONE. I wonder why that is the case.

I did as much research as Andrew to find this. What are the chances that this is Andrew: in the UK, single, liberal, agnostic, earns under $25,000, and looking for love with another man? At a minimum, that hypothesis is as valid as his.

I know the research in this area very well, and Andrew27's research is consistently debunked. Also, I certainly don't read popular books for my scientific information!!! He's also been involved in several scandals which undermine his credibility.

If you want to tout this guy, then go ahead.
