    John R. Lott, Jr., is the author five books, including Freedomnomics andAre Predatory Commitments Credible? Who Should the Courts Believe?, the latter also published by the University of Chicago Press.

    On its initial publication in 1998, John R. Lott’s More Guns, Less Crime drew both lavish praise and heated criticism. More than a decade later, it continues to play a key role in ongoing arguments over gun-control laws: despite all the attacks by gun-control advocates, no one has ever been able to refute Lott’s simple, startling conclusion that more guns mean less crime. Relying on the most rigorously comprehensive data analysis ever conducted on crime statistics and right-to-carry laws, the book directly challenges common perceptions about the relationship of guns, crime, and violence. For this third edition, Lott draws on an additional ten years of data—including provocative analysis of the effects of gun bans in Chicago and Washington, D.C—that brings the book fully up to date and further bolsters its central contention.

    • 2nd Amendment

      If you want good scholarly data to prove the social benefits of gun ownership and the right to bear arms in public, this is your book. It can be dry at some points and honestly over my head elsewhere but you can skip those parts. As the title suggests and what many have already known in their gut, when you put more firearms in the hands of the public, criminals will be less active. Common sense meets science. I'd put this on the shelf next to other seminal works on 2nd Amendment rights.
