[John R. Lott interview] The Obama Debacle
The National Review Online ^ | June 21, 2012 | Kathryn Jean Lopez

Posted on 06/21/2012 7:41:07 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

John R. Lott Jr. and Grover G. Norquist are the authors of Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Lott, a former colleague of the president’s at the University of Chicago Law School, answers some questions about the depth of the debacle and the way out from National Review Online’s Kathryn Jean Lopez.

KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: John, you say that when you were a faculty colleague of Barack Obama, he tagged you as “the gun guy” and announced that “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.” That can’t possibly be true. Why should we believe you?

JOHN R. LOTT JR.: Well, don’t just take my word for his views on guns, look at the positions Obama took on guns during his time in Chicago. Obama supported a ban on handguns in 1996, and a ban on the sale of all semiautomatic guns in 1998 (a ban that would have encompassed the vast majority of guns sold in the U.S.). In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park (essentially a ban on virtually all gun stores), and he has worked in other ways to support bans. He was on the board of directors for the Joyce Foundation, the largest private funder of research to ban gun ownership in the U.S.

Don’t forget John, he also conspired with Eric Holder to flood Mexico with firearms sold to KNOWN Criminals and Illegals approved by the DOJ that killed Two US Border Agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens.

For which a grand jury should be convened and indictments for premeditated murder and international terrorism should be handed down forthwith.

What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future

ROFL! WHAT A JOKE!

The government-sow-teat-sucking, smartphone-porn-addicted, emperor-worshipping, God-hating, homo-loving, baby-murdering, soulless 'Mercun people HAVE NO FUTURE! They and the DEAD and the ILLEGALS are going to vote to KEEP THINGS EXACTLY THE WAY THEY ARE! Keep the Free Sh*t flowing, at any cost!

Our only hope is a 2nd revolution.

Yeeeow! What the? What is the deal with his brow?

It looks like his forehead rear-ended an F/A-18 on deck?

I think he got pl. surgery for TV appearances. Don't know for sure, but seems that's what happened. Too bad it didn't work out that well-bad plastic surgeon maybe.
