The Lost Class
How do you force pro-gun advocates to reckon with the consequences of their punditry?
On June 4, 2021, we invited former NRA President David Keene and prominent economist and gun advocate John Lott to speak at the graduation of James Madison Academy, a fictional institution we created. As Keene and Lott walked on stage to face 3,044 empty chairs, each representing a would-be graduate of the class of 2021 who lost their life to gun violence, they were forced to face the consequences head-on.
