Dr. John Lott discusses how BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti impersonated him back in 2003 to support gun control. Peretti sent out hundreds of thousands of emails lobbying against the proposed “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.” This bill ,which was being debated at the time (it ultimately passed in 2005), protected gun makers from abusive lawsuits that were designed solely to put them out of business with overwhelming legal fees.
Peretti even purchased Google advertising for his fake website AskJohnLott.org. When Dr. John Lott’s name was searched, Peretti’s fake website would appear at the top of the results.
Peretti also used Dr. Lott’s name and picture to advise people on how to violate gun control laws.
