Volokh drops Lott

The Journalist’s Guide to Gun Policy Scholars and Second Amendment Scholars is a site that provides journalists with a list of “credible, articulate scholars” to consult about gun policy questions. It used to contain a listing for John R. Lott Jr, who was available to give his special insight into “Women and Gun Issues” as well as other gun issues. The site’s maintainer, Eugene Volokh, invites visitors to tell him “how this guide can be made more useful”. I don’t think anyone should be recommending Lott to journalists, so I wrote to Volokh suggesting that the guide could be improved by removing Lott’s name from it. And he has.

    I like Prof. Volokh, and respect his work. Glad to see he’s doing the right thing. Clayton will probably be po’d though.
