Do More Guns Mean Less Crime?

Mike Alissi
Reason Online

John Lott and Robert Ehrlich square off next week in a Reason Online debate!

Do "right-to-carry" laws lead to a reduction in violent crime as Yale research scholar, John R. Lott, 
argued in his 1998 book, More Guns, Less Crime?

Robert Ehrlich, a professor of physics at George Mason University and author of Nine Crazy Ideas in 
Science: A Few May Even Be True, disagrees with Lott's interpretation of the data. He says concealed 
carry laws have probably had no effect on violent crime, one way or the other.

Who's right?

Decide for yourself next week as Lott and Ehrlich shoot it out in a Reason Online debate!

Here's the schedule:

Round 1
Monday, May 21: Robert Ehrlich makes his case
Tuesday, May 22: John Lott responds

Round 2
Wednesday, May 23: Ehrlich replies
Thursday, May 24: Lott replies

Each dispatch will be posted by 9:00 A.M. Eastern.

Don't miss it!
