- February 25 - Handgun Free-America will protest against American
Enterprise Institute Scholar John Lott and his alleged fictitious
research tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 26, at AEI's annual dinner
at 5:30 p.m. at the Washington Hilton. John Lott, a senior fellow
at AEI, has been accused of falsifying research about concealed
carry of guns for his book, "More Guns, Less Crime." This research
and John Lott's lobbying efforts have been used to justify passing
concealed carry laws in states throughout the country, which now
pose a danger to millions of Americans.
Lott is accused
of fabricating a key survey that his book was based upon and then
lying about it. According to many recent news stories, Lott has
also stooped so low as to answer his critics on the Internet under
the pseudonym Mary Rosh, posing as "an ex-student," a scared,
defenseless woman, and an unbiased consumer of his research.
Enterprise Institute continues to lose credibility every day from
its association with this 'academic' and his questionable research.
Will AEI continue to support John Lott?" Chris McGrath, executive
director, asked today.
Feb. 26, 5:30 p.m.
