John Lott: Reaction to D.C. Gun Ban Decision
John R. Lott, Jr. wrote last week, "The Supreme Court's decision Thursday affirming that people have a right to own guns evoked all sorts of reactions...." He then went on to write about one of these reactions:
With new legal cases being filed against Chicago's gun ban this past week, somebody in the media is going to eventually have to ask Obama why he not only never spoke out against Chicago's ban, but more so why he actively supported it. As a state senator, why did Obama vote against a popular bi-partisan bill that would have prohibited prosecution of otherwise law-abiding citizens for violating local gun prohibition ordinances in Illinois if the gun was used to stop a home invasion by violent criminals.
