Obama Expresses His Thoughts On Dismantling The Bill Of Rights

In his new book, At the Brink, economist and author John R. 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.

    This reminds me of the Canadian situation with respect to gun control and some of these bone heads could learn from the Canadian firearm registry boondoggle. Back in the nineties we had a Liberal government and a anti-gun zealot big city cabinet minister named Alan Rock. Rock was known to have stated that he believed that only police and military should be able to posses firearms. Rock was subsequently put in charge of reforming Canada’s firearms legislation, the headliner being the introduction of registration for every firearm in Canada. Of course firearms owners being aware of Rock’s philosophy, were afraid that registration was just the first step towards confiscation. And indeed, there was some effective confiscation when certain pistol calibers were made illegal. Rock and company, being zealot, would not entertain any practical advise from the firearms community resulting in a registration system that was prone to errors and would put even firearms owners attempting to comply in legal jeopardy. after a number of years in operation the registration had only recorded a fraction of fire arms in Canada and the costs were way beyond the original projections. Fortunately for firearms owners, the Conservative party finally achieved a majority government and axed the Frankenstein firearms registration system. All told, more than 2 billion dollars was blown on the registry. This is what happens when zealots get control of power.
