Oregon Dems silence crime expert as they push gun control bill: ‘What are they afraid of?’

John Lott - Crime Prevention Research Center | Published on 5/6/2023
Dr. John Lott recently went to Oregon to testify before their state Senate about SB 348, which would amend Measure 114, which barely passed this past November. The Democrats wouldn’t allow Lott to testify in the invited session, despite Lott being the only expert witness that the Republicans invited to testify. When Lott was finally allowed to testify for two minutes later that evening during public testimony, the Republicans were not allowed to ask him any questions and others were not allowed to let Lott use their time.
