GUN-NUT NAILED ON DETOUR RADIO
MORE GUNS DON'T EQUAL LESS MURDER:
This time that loser Lott was finally caught
flat-footed and without his usual script of
pre-prepared slanted statistics. Oops!

Pal Of Gin Jacobs,
Congrats to Thom Hartmann on an internet broadcast feed of Detour Talk Radio today (around 9:20 AM pacific time), for totally owning longtime gun-nut idiot John Lott, pro-gun author of More Guns, Less Crime.
Lott, a lying, NRA-funded statistics-twisting twit, has been a thorn in the side of anti-guns since at least the 1990s. One of his usual crooked routines, which many other gun-nuts have copied, is to switch the subject of all main gun-murder statistics to far more minor non-murder gun crime stats instead. That way, his side can squawk, "Look - they got rid of guns in this area, and crime went up!" (Meanwhile, gun murders dropped to almost zero.)
Anyway, it was great to hear Thom making the excellent point that the current Egypt situation is a textbook example of an unarmed populace getting far more done than any mere bunch of gun-toting losers. Lott could only stutter, babble, and claim there were too many points to cover, all the while covering exactly NONE.
His weak answer was always the same: "...uh, it's too hard to tell for sure." And one of his biggest whoppers had to be in trying to ignore actual printed government records on registered guns, claiming that such things relied only on mere "surveys." - Huh? Not really!
Fantastic job, Thom!
