Gun-Hating, Non-Debating Everytown

posted on April 29, 2015

C-SPAN was recently scheduled to host a debate on America’s shifting gun views between John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center and Ted Alcorn with Everytown For Gun Safety. Alcorn, however, refused to appear with Lott and requested instead to appear after Lott. In Alcorn’s solo interview, following Lott’s solo interview, Alcorn incredibly made this statement:

“We welcome debate. … When there is a credible scientist, someone who wants to have a real, constructive conversation, we will be there.”

Yet there was Lott, as credible as they come—a Ph.D. who has formerly served as chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission, has held positions at several prestigious academic institutions, and is a respected author and columnist—ready to discuss … and Alcorn bailed.

Seems Everytown’s claims of “welcoming” debate fall as flat and false as nearly all the rhetoric spewed by the gun-hating group.
