Gun Control Film Leaves Four-Hour John Lott
Interview on Cutting Room Floor

By AWR Hawkins. May 16th, 2016

Katie Couric's gun control documentary "Under the Gun" was released May 15 without any portion of a four-hour interview conducted with John Lott, Jr.

Lott is president of the Crime Prevention Research Center and a known gun scholar whose seminal work is More Guns, Less Crime.

On May 6, Lott tweeted that he had been "interviewed for 4 hours" for Couric's film and he "bet" that four hours would be reduced to a "select few minutes" of actual screen time. The reduction happened alright. But instead of using those select few minutes, Couric and director Stephanie Soechtig cut Lott's interview altogether. .....

Bias it seems is alive and well. Incredible, if not despicable, that no part of a four hour Lott interview that could have added balance was not used, and this is so typical of the anti-gun approach. The only "facts" that get discussed are those "facts" that are considered convenient to push and skew the agenda.

(A new infographic is now available - "Comparing US State Gun Laws" - this is a useful graphical comparison for easy reference.)
