John Lott Quotes Then-Professor Obama Saying, “I Don’t Believe People Should Be Able To Own Guns”
Pro gun author and researcher John Lott, wrote the popular book, More Guns, Less Crime which highlights the correlation between a reduced crime rate and a well armed populace.
Dr. Lott has a new book out in which he quotes President Obama (them Professor Obama at the University of Chicago) as saying, “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”
According to CNSNews, Lott explains that he first met Obama shortly after completing his research on concealed handgun laws and crime.
“He did not come across as a moderate who wanted to bring people together,” Lott writes.
After he introduced himself to Obama, Lott suggested that they have lunch one day to discuss their views on guns. According to Lott, Obama “grimaced and turned away.” That was the way many conversations with Obama ended, Lott says.
John Lott’s new book is titled At the Brink.
