Dr. John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, got to weigh in on that question and more during a recent interview with C-SPAN’s Washington Journal.

Watch the entire interview below:

“I was on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal for over 40 minutes this past Saturday. If there is one of my interviews that you should watch, please watch this one,” said Lott about the interview. in his weekly newsletter.

“You rarely get such a long time on national television to go through gun control issues in so much depth. I hope that you all will also share the video with others. By the way, C-SPAN does pay attention to the number of views that these videos receive, and the more views that this gets, the more likely they will be to have me on again soon,” he continued.

Please share! The more we can get Dr. Lott on TV, the more people will be exposed to the truth.

    Dr. Lott did a great job as usual by simply telling the truth. The facts he mentions are not some rare hidden gems available only to a few. They are facts available to all, and they are ignored, skewed, and misquoted by the Left (including Biden this week) to advance their anti-Constitutional agenda. The only upside is that the Marxists are now saying the quiet part out loud. They aren’t hiding what they are trying to do. We can either surrender or we can vote our way back to freedom.

    John Lott did an amazing job! I am really surprised he got the airtime he did on C-Span, and without any angry yelling people trying to fight logic with shouting!

    My only concern is that while he was clearly upset by the caller who made some racist comments about her experience with people from Compton, he didn’t make a statement that he was not OK with the characterization. I can see that being used against him.

      That also would have used up the valuable time he had to talk about what he was there to talk about , and then he would have been cut short. The person that called in is the issue not him.
