Dr. John Lott, along with former NRA president, David Keene were duped by a gun-control group calling itself ‘Change the Ref.’ Founded by Manuel and Patricia Oliver, the parents of a murdered Parkland student, the group tricked Lott and Keene to give fake commencement addresses and film their rehearsals on June 4th, 2021. Dr. Lott found out about the deception when the gun control group released a one-minute and 38-sec video clip leaving out the remaining nearly 14 minutes of his rehearsal address to the empty seats. Dr. Lott appeared on Armed American Radio with Mark Walters Sunday, June 27th to provide context into the tactics used by the group.

Referring to CNN coverage of the scheme, John said, “You should go and make them release the full video. You know, if the NRA were to go and do this to some gun control group and the gun control group said they deceptively edited the video, and the NRA said, well we’re not gonna release the video, could you imagine? I would assume the whole news coverage would be about how the NRA was being dishonest by not releasing the video….For the media, there’s like nothing wrong the gun control people can do.”
