Obama: "I don't believe people should be able to own guns"

Thanks to CNS News, we now know the truth of Obama's opinion on our 2nd amendment 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.

The chapter documents the actions that Obama has taken on guns, citing the following:
  • In 1996, Obama supported a ban on handguns
  • In 1998, he supported a ban on the sale of all semi-automatic guns
  • In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park, which would have shut down nearly all gun stores
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."
h/t weasel zipper:

Yes, now that he is in the national spot light, of course he is going to change his tune.
But with today's MSM, he could still speak those words, and it wouldn't get any coverage.
