Today’s Flash Back Friday takes us to episode 28.
Jason Hartman is joined by John R Lott to discuss the impact gun ownership has on crime rates. Contrary to some opinion, higher ownership rates tend to create lower crime rates. John is author of The Bias Against Guns: Why Almost Everything You’ve Heard About Gun Control is Wrong; Freedomnomics: Why the Free Market Works and Other Half-Baked Theories Don’t; and Straight Shooting: Firearms, Economics and Public Policy
John is a staunch gun rights advocate and argues against restrictions on owning and carrying guns. He’s been referred to as “The Gun Crowd’s Guru” by Nobel laureate Milton Friedman.
