John R. Lott Jr. and Grover G. Norquist are the authors of Debacle: Obamas War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future. Lott, a former colleague of the presidents at the University of Chicago Law School, answers some questions about the depth of the debacle and the way out from National Review Onlines 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 dont believe people should be able to own guns. That cant possibly be true. Why should we believe you?
JOHN R. LOTT JR.: Well, dont 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.

Thanks for the post.
