Wyoming –-(Ammoland.com)- Good news about Wednesday's Senate hearing on HB-114…John Lott Jr. will be in Cheyenne to testify at the Senate Committee!
The House bill sponsor of HB-114, Representative Allen Jaggi, along with the Senate sponsor Senator Curt Meier — invited John Lott Jr. to provide expert testimony about concealed carry pertaining to HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones.
Lott is an Economist who received his Ph.D. in economics from UCLA in 1984 – and is well known for crunching numbers, articulating facts and providing statistics using real life data on self defense.
As you know, Wyoming’s entire field of academia has come out in full force against HB-114.
By contrast, Lott has emerged from the academic environment with an outlook that challenges the ‘feelings based' anti-gun crowd that occupies so many American college campuses.
Lott is also the Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center. You can review the organizations goals here.
In addition, Lott has published hundreds of articles in academic journals, and is the author of books, “The Bias Against Guns ( tiny.cc/kjtkux ) ,” and “More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws ( tiny.cc/sktkux ).”
Lott has enjoyed being a contributing columnist for FoxNews.com, and his opinion pieces have appeared in such places as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and the Chicago Tribune.
We hope the entire Wyoming Legislature welcomes John Lott Jr. and his expert testimony.
