More than a decade ago, John Lott’s best-selling book More Guns, Less Crime shattered conventional wisdom about gun control, and changed the academic debate among criminologists and economists from how much gun ownership caused crime to increase, to how much it caused crime to decrease. Lott, a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Maryland, College Park, and former University of Chicago visiting professor and chief economist with the U.S. Sentencing Commission, is scheduled for two upcoming appearances in Bellingham on Wednesday, June 12. Dr. Lott will be discussing different topics at each event. These events are being hosted by the Northwest Business Club, Doug and Robin Williams, Spartan Arms and Hydrographics, Skagit Arms, and Yeagers. Please see the information below for more details and please plan to attend: June 12, 2013 Two Bellingham Appearances: 11:45 A.M.-1:30 P.M.
