CPRC Shoots Holes in Study that Claims States with More Guns Have More Police Deaths

Guest post by John R. Lott Jr., founder of the Crime Prevention Research Center.

A recent study in the American Journal of Public Health claimed that there were more police feloniously killed in states that had more guns. The study got extensive news coverage at the TV networks such as NBC News, newspapers such as the Chicago Sun-Times,  and international coverage such the UK Guardian.

Yet, it took just a couple of minutes to read the paper and realize that the empirical work was done in a very non-standard way.
