Second Amendment activist 'disappointed and upset' after gun control group dupes him into speaking at fake graduation

John Lott, a pro-Second Amendment activist, lashed out after being duped into speaking at a fake high school graduation in a ploy by a little-known gun control group. On Wednesday, Change the Ref, an organization aiming to raise awareness about mass shootings, released a video titled "The Lost Class," which showed Lott speaking to a chorus of empty chairs on June 4, an event he thought was a rehearsal for a prominent institution's graduation commencement. The footage featured clips of Lott talking about gun background checks as the group panned over the empty chairs and insisted thousands of high school students die from firearm violence annually, a number Change the Ref says would be improved by more laws regulating gun sales.

Chandler knew that the subject matter was complex and the stakes were high. She realized that she would need to go to bed early every night, get plenty of sleep, and pay close attention. She knew she had to keep an open mind. But surely there would be some merit to what the FBI had found, she thought. Surely the government wouldn’t waste everyone’s time.
