On WBCK FM in Central Michigan: Does the US have an “astronomically” higher gun violence than the rest of the world

3 Oct , 2017  

Dr. John Lott appeared on WBCK FM in Central Michigan to discuss where the US has an “astronomically” higher gun violence than the rest of the world.  Unfortunately, the audio on this fairly poor.  From the show’s webpage:

I reached out to Dr. Lott after the mass shooting in Las Vegas and one of my listeners calling into my show yesterday and making the statement that America has “astronomically” higher gun violence than the rest of the world.  I asked him for his source in which he is basing that statement on and he could not answer me.

He may be right or he may be wrong, I just want facts to guide all of our opinions and thoughts on such controversial issues.  So I reached out to Dr. Lott to find out those facts.

We spoke about the gun violence statistics he has researched and have been published, to find out what he said please click on the following segments:

The two sources for Dr. Lott’s discussion are here and here.
