New York Times publishes column from the world's least reliable gun researcher

11 monthes ago   |   By

John Lott, a discredited researcher with a history of pushing false and misleading information about guns, scored space in Tuesday's New York Times. The article, which argues that background checks are flawed and ineffective, continues his streak of misleading and deeply flawed analyses.
