Following up on my earlier posts on yesterday’s US Senate hearing on Stand-Your-GroundI’m please to provide the full-length video of the testimony of Dr. John Lott, Jr., long known to all of us in the self-defense community as the author of the seminal text, More Guns, Less Crime. Today Dr. Lott leads the Crime Prevention Research Center.
Dr. Lott also had additional valuable testimony, after these prepared remarks, when he was questioned by some of the Senators in the hearing, but I’ll have to post those up later.
More to come, including Dr. Ilya Shapiro of CATO, as well as some anti-self-defense folks (if I feel like bothering with the latter).
Also, don’t forget that I did an overview of the entire hearing at Legal Insurrection: “Stand Your Ground” opponents mangle law and Trayvon facts at Senate Hearing
