Light Over Heat #10: Thanks Given and Input Requested

With this 10th episode of “Light Over Heat,” I am going to call Season 1 a wrap. Three months ago, I had serious doubts about my ability to do weekly videos on this channel. I was fortunate to be able to consult with John Correia of Active Self-Protection who advised, “It is easier to steer a moving car.”

So, I embarked on this trip and am happy to say I haven’t (yet) crashed the car.

INPUT REQUESTED: If there are specific topics you would like me to address in a short video on this channel, please put them in the comments! I would like to organize a future season around these suggestions.

Additional thanks with video and audio issues go to Sean Sorrentino, Randy Miyan of the Liberal Gun Owners, and Yancy Simon Faulkner.

New “Light Over Heat” videos are released on YouTube every Wednesday, so please surf over to my YouTube channel and SUBSCRIBE to follow, RING THE BELL to receive notifications, and SHARE so others can learn about this work.

  1. I understand being a sociologist that you are more familiar with research done from that area, but, as I said in a earlier post, there is research done within the legal realm, and others. Much of that research contradicts the research published within sociology and I see a need to critically address the strengths and weaknesses of the research on both sides. I will admit that I am biased but I feel that much of the research from the sociological side is weak methodologically and acts as a reinforcer of the researcher bias. I also admit that maybe true on the pro-gun side but I find less so as they expect to to held to task for any shortcomings.
    As a supplement, I am not sure if I mentioned: Howard Nemerov, 400 Hundred years of gun control. A work which I find to be very well researched.

    • Different fields definitely have different standards of scholarship (e.g., original data collection/analysis vs. secondary analyses). I have delved into legal scholarship in my work on guns much more than in any other area I have worked in and it has been an interesting journey (e.g., never thought I would put out a mini-book on the history of concealed carry laws). The best work is interdisciplinary, but scholarship is so specialized from field to field it can be difficult to accomplish.
