The following is an article by Dr. Paul Gallant and about Dr. Joanne Eisen. Of interest are the references to independent researchers confirming Lott's work.

I've been looking into this issue for a good long time and there is one pattern that is so consistent that it's spooky, and no one really talks about it.

Research that stands in favor of individual RKBA tends to stand the tests of science, time, and peer review,

and

"research" that stands against RKBA is usually demolished in very short order, and (sometimes even repudiated by it's own author! )


IMO, based on the evidence, I think it's time that we can collectively declare that the "debate" is over, and accept that the Individual Right To Keep And Bear Arms is supported by first principles, natural rights, history, and both pragmatic and social utility.



We're on solid ground folks. Time to stand tall.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter if guns increase or decrease societal risks. Freedom is by nature a risky business. If someone wants to live his or her life being fed baby food while wearing a straightjacket in a padded cell, good for them. They will be very safe and face few risks in life. But I do not wish to live like that, and would prefer to take my chances with the risks inherent to being a free human being.

I've already been in a womb once. I don't need society to be its surrogate.
