Obama: 'People Shouldn't be Allowed to Own Guns'

A fellow professor with Barack Obama at the University of Chicago in the 1990s told radio host Laura Ingraham last week that the man who would become president once insisted, “People shouldn’t be allowed to own guns.”

That professor was John Lott, already known then as a leading gun-rights advocate and now author of several books, including “More Guns, Less Crime” and “Freedomnomics.”

“I knew Obama at the University of Chicago,” Lott told Ingraham. “We both taught there at the same time for about four years, and I talked to him about guns. I know what his views are on that.

“The first time I ever met him, I went, introduced myself, he said, ‘Oh, you’re the gun guy,’” Lott recalled. “He said to me, ‘I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.’”

    How will we protect ourselves from the Obama government?

  2. john randall says:

    If they took the weapons away from the thugs and the crooks, Obamas people wouldnt have any guns, .and there the last people that should have any.

  3. novi56 says:

    nor does Mitt Romney think people need to own guns.

    I’m kicking around the idea of voting for Romney, even though I know it will mean the continuation of the Obama administration (did you hear, the GOP leadership is not going to defund Obamacare. Surprised?). Anyone capable of any degree of critical thinking, has to understand that Obama, is the continuation of Bush, but on steroids.

    I’m going to vote for Romney, hoping that all of you conservatives will eventually have to admit there is no difference between the parties, not really.

    I figured it out (finally), in ’05; when it became painfully obvious, that Bush was the friend of the banksters and was intentionally destroying America’s sovereignty through the North American Union and failure to close the border. Remember, Bush imprisoned our Border Agents for doing their job.

    Every policy, every executive order Obama signed will stand under Romney. I’ve been watching the GOP (and sadly, voting for them) for almost 50 years. They never rescind bad laws made by Democrats; they just make more bad laws of their own. .

    Well of course that would be his view. I’m sure he really does know that the founders intended that amendment to protect the citizens against a tyrannical government if the need arose…………….are we there yet?

  5. Larry says:

    Garbage mouth Obama still at it.

  6. Texas Patriot says:

    Yeah, how else can a tyrannical oppressive Dictator suppose to run his country if there are those with guns that can over throw me so that they can re-create a free society!!!

  7. OLDDAD says:

    He knows perfectly well that our founding fathers insisted on the second ammendment since they could have needed to defend themselves again in case of another invasion. That is why it is the seconde ammendment and not the 15th.
    Obozzo knows that he must get all guns out of the citizens hands to insure peacefull subjugation. In the 1940 era before Pearl Harbor the Japanese military considered invasion of the USA and rejected the idea as too dangerous. “we would find a gun behind every blade of grass”. That from the man who masterminded the attack on pearl harbour.
    I guess the dirty old men that founded our counry and wrote the constitution knew what might happen again.
    Get this Comminist out of MY WHITE HOUSE.

  8. ron says:

    Obama should not be allowed to be president.

  9. blaineiac says:

    Every true believing Liberal knows for a fact that when the anointed one gives the order, every single privately owned gun in the country, without exception, will voluntarily be turned in, and we’ll have a “gun free” utopia! There’ll be no more crime! “Gun Free Zones” and “Gun Free Schools” have PROVED that! There’ll be no more rapes! (Kinda hard to do a rape when you’re wielding a bow and arrow, LOL!) What a “perfect” parallel universe they live in! Is it no wonder they want that for the rest of us? Maybe they can even disband the police!

    What Liberals don’t know is there’s no accounting for stupidity!

  10. sean murry says:

    We need guns to protect ourselves from tyrany like obummer and crew.

  11. Chloe09 says:

    Well, After listening to SC Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, If the SC gets there hands on the 2 Amendment it will be changed. Not sure if it’s for the better or worse, but it’s next.

  12. Jim Haynes says:

    The people shouldn’t allow Obama to be president along with the complicit congress who are nothing but yes men to the nth degree, He is deliberately killing America while the majority of the people are idly standing by with their cranium up their sphincter watching and experiencing the destruction of their republic who the forefathers predicted would exactly happen if big government ran the people not the people running the government. By all historical standards this nation of ours is slipping away from us 24/7 at mach speed with no knight in shining armor to save us. Any opposition to this tyranny is either bought off or killed off, no one person can defeat this evil transition to their goal of ultimate slavery, it must be done en mass to claim victory.

  13. Not a Lemming says:

    The commentaries below are embarrassing for BOTH sides. With liberals, I am not too
    surprised, but for conservatives to act as badly as a liberal, it only serves to make both
    sides look ridiculous. Please, let us not stoop to the levels of ignorant, useless name
    calling and use this space to express points that are worthwhile in the fight for freedom
    and America!

  14. John says:

    Of course Obama is against law-abiding citizens’ owning firearms. Those who would advocate a tyrannical government understand that citizens who own firearms can resist or even overthrow their diabolical plans. Obama falls into the tyrant category in my opinion.Don’t let it happen here. History has lessons for us.


    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
    From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
    were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915
    to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up
    and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from
    1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend
    themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to
    1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were
    rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From
    1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
    up and exterminated.

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971
    to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975
    to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
    up and exterminated.

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in
    the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

    You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or
    hear politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and
    property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding

    Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun
    control, please remind them of this history lesson.

  15. dominke says:

    Without guns the honest citizen cannot defend ourselves and that is reason Obama wants all of our guns. Those that can’t understand it are asking to be enslaved.
