John Lott Said What?
When John Lott, founder and CEO of the Crime Prevention Research Center, was called to be an expert witness—as he has been many times before—for a Washington state committee hearing, he was happy to oblige.
With a 10-hour trek standing between his home in Montana and the state capitol in Olympia, Wash., Lott set out to testify. He had a lot to say, as Washington state recently passed one of the most-restrictive gun-control packages ever with Measure 114.
What happened next was a shocking act of political maneuvering to suppress an expert witness. Lott got a call saying he wouldn’t be able to testify. He kept making inquiries as he drove and finally was told he could speak for a total of two minutes but that no one would be allowed to ask him any questions—the thing is, Q&A sessions are typically much longer than a person’s prepared testimony, so even with two minutes (less time than any popular song) to speak, legislators would not be allowed to get his analysis of proposed laws.
