Well this sure as hell explains a lot. John Lott Jr., author of a new book called ‘At the Brink’ reveals a conversation he had with Obama when he was professor at the University of Chicago. Obama point blank told Lott that ‘I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.’ In fact, the topic of guns came up quite frequently when Obama was a professor in Chicago.
After he introduced himself to Obama, Lott suggested that they have lunch one day to discuss their views on guns. According to Lott, Obama “grimaced and turned away.” That was the way many conversations with Obama ended, Lott says.
Although the Law School was famous for the openness of its faculty and friendly engagement, Lott says, “Obama…preferred silent, scowling disdain to collegiality.”
