In a new book, At the Brink, economist and author John R. Lott Jr., writes about the presidency of Barack Obama and recalls conversations regarding gun laws they had while working at the University of Chicago.
"I don't believe people should be able to own guns," Obama told Lott one day at the University of Chicago Law School.
President Barack Obama describes his views on guns much differently now that he is on the national stage, Lott believes, pointing to an interview on Fox News in which Obama states, "I have said consistently that I believe that the Second Amendment is an individual right."
But, Lott isn't convinced:
"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."
