Law professor Jim Lindgren of Northwestern University talks to Cam Edwards about the uproar caused by the recent article by historian Michael Bellesiles. Bellesiles, whose book Arming America claimed that guns were rare in early American culture, was disgraced when Lindgren and other academics demonstrated that his research was fraudulent. Now an article that he published in the Chronicle of Higher Education detailing the death of a student's soldier brother has been revealed to be based on false information. Lindgren says that even if Bellesiles did not intentionally pass off a fictional story as truth, an academic historian should have checked the accuracy of the information that went into the article.
