By John R Lott
Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Crime Prevention Research Center’s (CPRC) John Lott was recently on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal.
John was supposed to debate people’s changing views on guns, with Bloomberg’s research director, Ted Alcorn. But Every Towns “research director” refused to debate John one on one. Even refusing to appear on the video broadcast at the same time.
In his one man appearance he then explains why he won’t debate his groups push for more gun control and from what I can determine he said that Bloomberg’s people would only debate people that they agree with.
Without anyone to debate, John Lott went on to talk about the new study put out by Pew Research Center which finds that support for gun rights have increased and, for the first time, protecting gun rights is more important than controlling ownership.
As mentioned, Lott was originally supposed to be on for an hour to discuss these issues with Ted Alcorn, the “research director” for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown. But Alcorn would not appear at the same time and insisted that he be allowed to appear after Lott. This clip is from the end of Lott’s appearance (after John left the studio) on C-SPAN.
