Video: Gun Expert Decides To Make Stuff Up. Reporter Shuts Him Down.

From our friends at UPWORTHY:

John Lott is a scholar at the University of Maryland. He has a history of dishonesty (see below video) despite his impressive resume. He uses logical fallacies and arbitrary data points to justify eliminating all gun laws. You read that right. ALL GUN LAWS. His theory is that all the killers from Oregon, to Columbine, to Aurora, to Newtown specifically chose their targets based on what local gun laws are so that no one else would have a gun to shoot back. Ergo, eliminate all laws, thereby making sociopathic murderers think twice, knowing everyone could be armed.

Thankfully, Soledad wasn't having it. And the result is very satisfying.

At 1:20, Soledad has already had enough and challenges him.  At 2:23, Soledad says no again. At 3:36, she's so baffled, she just ignores his really invalid points and goes back to actually trying to make him do basic math. At 4:58, she continues to pummel him with reason. And at 7:15, Soledad shuts that whole thing down.
