If only he was still this honest.

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. […]
“Despite his assurance to Fox News that he understands the Second Amendment, it’s a good bet that the positions Obama took on guns during his time at Chicago reveal his true convictions.”
The chapter documents the actions that Obama has taken on guns, citing the following:
•In 1996, Obama supported a ban on handguns
•In 1998, he supported a ban on the sale of all semi-automatic guns
•In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park, which would have shut down nearly all gun stores
