20 Sep , 2014  

John Lott was on the Voice of Russia to discuss gun violence in the United States, particularly the case of 51 year old Don Spirit who killed his daughter and grand children (also here). Comparable homicide rates in the Russian Federation and the US are available from the United Nations (pp. 107 and 111), and they show that the Russian murder rate is more than twice the murder rate in the US (with Russia’s murder rate of at least 11.2 and the US of 5 per 100,000 in 2009). The interview is available here. The interview took place on Saturday, September 20th, 2014, 9:07 to 9:16 AM.
