On tonight's Liberty Update, Vice President of Legal Affairs at the Center for Individual Freedom Tim Lee joins Cam Edwards in the studio to discuss the view of gun control expressed by Dr. John Lott in his classic study More Guns, Less Crime, now available in its third edition. Lee explains that many things have changed in the United States since the previous edition of the book, but the idea that arming a greater number of people contributes to order and legality holds true. He analyzes the economic principles at work in this model and discusses the crucial concept of incentives. Lee also discusses the recent scandal relating to the extravagant salaries of some California city officials, at a time in which many cities are slashing the budgets of their police departments.
