Criminological Theory and Criminal Justice Policy

 According to John Lott, “more guns” in the hands of law abiding citizens makes for “less crime.” What is your position on that topic? Do you agree or disagree with Lott’s application of criminological theory to criminal justice policy? 

  The reading for the unit discussion is in announcements and attached here also (I also put the link to Lott below). Read the short piece by Lott and Chapter 4 in your text: rational choice theory.  Lott uses rational choice to ground his theory on “More Guns Less Crime”. Is he right?
