Alan Dershowitz's continued false claims about my research and the research on gun control generally
Interview on Geraldo Rivera’s national radio show, January 31, 2013
Alan Dershowitz: We need objective scientists looking at all the variables, not looking at kind of pat points being sponsored by the NRA or supporters of the NRA, not pseudo-scientists who come to the problem with the point of view. We need the National Science Foundation, we need other objective scientists looking at everything, looking at the relationship between the amount of guns in society and the amount of crime holding constant racial factors, financial factors, economic, all kinds of other factors. We need to learn the truth about this. We have to follow the facts and follow the truth. And the truth doesn’t come from the NRA, the truth doesn’t come from alleged professors who have a point of view and who have been advocating a particular point of view about this. It comes from objective scientists. We need to know the truth, lives depend on it.
Geraldo Rivera: You, John Lott, are the purported or alleged professor that Alan Dershowitz is talking about. How do you respond?
I have to thank Geraldo for having me back on his show. Previously Dan Gross from the Brady Campaign said that he would no longer appear on shows to debate me, but while some shows then decide that it is best not to have me on, Rivera invited me back to discuss the issues with Mr. Dershowitz.
