John Lott Counters Anti-Gun Prof Who Resigned Over Campus Carry

posted on May 27, 2017

We told you last week how a left-wing professor resigned from Kansas University, saying the state’s campus carry laws had driven him away. Now researcher and author John Lott is pointing out the inaccuracies in that professor’s assertions.

In a Friday op-ed at thehill.com, Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Institute, said Professor Jacob Dorman’s “talk is cheap.”

“Twelve states mandate the right to permitted concealed carry on public college campuses and an additional 22 states leave it up to the university,” Lott pointed out. “Not once has a permit holder in any of these states committed a crime on one of these campuses with a gun.”

Lott further pointed out the lunacy of such anti-gun professors’ assertions: “It is a wonder how these professors ever go off campus. After all, there are over 1.15 million concealed handgun permit holders in Texas. Kansans don't even need a permit to carry. Professors can't go to restaurants, movie theaters or grocery stores without being around legally carried concealed handguns.”
