John R. Lott Jr., an economist and author of the book “More Guns, Less Crime,” said in an interview that Northwell’s lineup “is pretty one-sided.”
Lott pointed to a just-published article he co-authored in the libertarian Cato Institute’s Regulation magazine, arguing that “public health researchers are much more supportive of gun control” — red-flag laws, bans on certain weapons or magazines, universal background checks, licensing and registration — “than are either criminologists or economists.”
In another book, “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies, he wrote of the public-health approach: “There is no mention that widespread gun ownership deters criminals from breaking into homes.

Economist John Lott criticized that 2017 JAMA study in Thursday’s hearing and said that one of its problems “is that it ignores all this other funding.”
In prepared remarks shared ahead of his testimony, Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center and author of “The War on Guns,” said people have been misled “into thinking that gun violence has been understudied.” He said public health research can be “poorly done” and “misleading,” and can exclude research by economists, criminologists and law professors.
