Since our resident Muay Thai expert and GOP-activist-claiming-to-be-progressive seems to believe Gary Kleck is well-respected, it would be helpful to revisit a couple of posts. Namely, this one and this one.
Both deal with Kleck’s flawed methodology and his rather bizarre claims WRT DGUs. It also explains why Kleck’s several DGU ’studies’ have such varied results.
Gunloons have a problem with Kleck, however. They don’t know it, though, because most gunloons don’t read and merely parrot what the NRA tells them. In fact, Kleck has publicly dismissed much of John Lott’s nonsense. In addition, Kleck’s book , Targetting Guns, has as its thesis the notion the good and bad effects of gun ownership have no appreciable effect on crime.
