  1. Author Quotes Then-Professor Obama Saying, 'I Don't Believe People Should Be Able To Own Guns'
    March 6, 2013

    In his new book, At the Brink, economist and author John Lott Jr., assesses the presidency of Barack Obama and recalls conversations regarding gun laws they had while working at the University of Chicago.

    In Chapter Three, Mr. Lott discusses gun-control and takes the reader back to his time at the University of Chicago, where he and then-professor Barack Obama spoke on numerous occasions about guns in America.

    "I don't believe people should be able to own guns," Obama told Lott one day at the University of Chicago Law School.

    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.
