Probably the weirdest interview that I have ever had
Morgan kept grilling Lott over his premise that gun control will not help stem violence, and that having more guns out there will lead to less crime. Lott tried to rebut the points Dershowitz and Morgan were making, but Morgan repeatedly interrupted him to get Lott to answer his questions and telling Lott that he was spouting “nonsense.”
Lott tried to explain the difference between semi-automatic and automatic weapons to Morgan, while Morgan and Dershowitz argued that civilians should not be allowed access to guns with that speed and ammo capacity. Another point Lott tried to make during the interview was that while England has less gun deaths per year than the United States, they had much less before they implemented gun control. . . .
Dershowitz claimed that "Your conclusions are paid for and financed by the National Rifle Association" or "This [my research] is junk science at its worst. Paid for and financed by the National Rifle Association" or that "It [the NRA] only funds research that will lead to these conclusions."
One of the comments that I got after the show due to Dershowitz's attacks.
