John Lott has written another book. No big surprise there. The surprise, forwarded to me by David Codrea, is that Lott has sanitized the story of the Fast and Furious scandal by writing me out of it.
Now, it is no surprise that John Lott doesn't like me very much. He took the trouble to personally look me up when I was resting and chatting with supporters on the steps at the side of the Connecticut state house right after my Hartford speech back in April (he also spoke at the rally) to take me to task for my "lawbreaking," saying that I was alienating the vast majority in the center and playing to gun confiscationists' worst characterizations of American firearm owners.
I told him if he was waiting for the "vast middle" to agree with us or to save us from the determined minority of collectivists who sought to disarm us he would be waiting a very long time. He left, frustrated and obviously angry that I could not see his "wisdom." The CCDL folks later told me he was loud in his denunciation of my speech to them as well. They did not agree.
Now it seems I have been "punished" by being swept down Lott's own personal memory hole. Pretty funny, really.
