You can support the Mikeb302000 blog by purchasing that incredible book from Amazon by clicking the icon in the post. If you're a gun control supporter, there's irony there, if you're a gun rights fanatic, there's double irony. In either case the book is a must read."These national polls should also produce more honest answers since a law-enforcement agency are not asking the questions. They imply much higher defensive use rates. Fifteen national polls, including those by organizations such as The Los Angeles Times, Gallup, and Peter Hart Research Associates imply that there are 760,000 to 3.6 million defensive uses of guns per year. Yet even if these estimates are wrong by a very large factor, they will suggest that defensive gun use is extremely common."
John Lott? ain't he that there guy whose data--from the survey "findings" that he bases a lot of his "work" on--all got losted 'cuz his hard drive crashed? That John Lott? Tell me how much they were gonna give you for each copy sold, mikeb302000 and I'll send you a check;.0ReplyDelete
I'm sure it's pennies. My idea is disseminating his book can only help our side.Delete
Unless you have graduate training in econometrics, you're not in a position to refute Lott's work. Remain silent and be thought a fool...
Interesting that they decided to interview John Lott and not that guy who lost his data in a flood, what was his name... oh yeah,...Michael BellesilesReplyDelete

One does not require a degree in any discipline to do what Lott does. I suspect he started lying a LONG time before he got caught lying about his "stats".
"Interesting that they decided to interview John Lott and not that guy who lost his data in a flood, what was his name... oh yeah,...Michael Bellesiles
Yeah, orlin, as if:
A.) Belleisles hadn't resigned HIS position after being caught in a lie, whereas Lott has never faced any fallout for his lying.
9.) Bellesisles is one of dozens of people, around the globe, who have looked at the same set of indicators as Lott and disagreed with him--and they haven't lost their homework.
A.) blah blah blah
9.) Yada yada yada
What? Is A.) & 9.) code for plagiarism? Or are those some more of your 'original' thoughts?
