Lott: Setting the Record Straight on Obamas Gun Control Policies
(GunReports.com) -- John R. Lott, Jr. contradicts the fiction of President Obama's assertion that his administration "has not curtailed the rights of gun owners, it has expanded them, including allowing people to carry their guns in national parks and wildlife refuges. Writing on BigGovernment.com, Lott says:
The Obama administration has been a consistent opponent of gun ownership. It has enacted a ban on the importation of semiautomatic guns because: The U.S. insisted that imports of the aging rifles could cause problems such as firearm accidents. They have also imposed much more extensive reporting requirements on sales of long guns.
There is also the Obama administrations push for the U.N.s Arms Trade Treaty and its continual inaccurate statements about the source of Mexicos crime guns.
In addition, President Obamas appointments to the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, are adamantly against any protection for individual ownership of guns. If one of the five justices in the majority of the Heller or McDonald cases were to die or retire, not only would further gains be prevented, but even those two precedents would be threatened.
