Anti-Gun Study Focuses on Gun Rights Advocate John Lott

A study recently published [1] by Johns Hopkins University pushed back against the campus carry movement, which it called the ‘Right to Carry’ (or RTC) movement. The study’s authors blasted economist John Lott, who has pushed for campus carry, and cited his findings extensively (24 times, to be exact).

NBC News [2] had their own bone to pick with Lott and gun rights advocates when they claimed the gun lobby blocked gun research:

“…although it’s worth noting that the gun-rights advocates have helped block federal research into gun violence [3] for years.”

That doesn’t sound like a neutral study, does it?
