About the back to Hannity while the Obama administration -- on the left want to restrict the right of gun owners all across the country.
We have surveillance video that every American needs to -- comes to us tonight from Michigan take a look at this video.
According to police a couple of wielding guns and -- day.
Home tax preparation business but we're.
They know that the security guard had an -- ar fifteen on hand and he was able to get off two shots forcing the intruders to play.
I had the business Oppenheim this could have been a very different situation.
Joining us now with reaction author at the brink all Obama put push us over the edge John Lott and his last -- more guns less crime.
And you deal with that ended with the issue again in this book -- those little.
Broader right well obviously there's a lot of debate about guns going on right now and it's part of the legacy that Obama's going to be -- -- with not only the damage that he's doing the economy but.
Unfortunately maybe the damage he does to people's ability to defend.
Insults that's true you know you said you -- at the University of Chicago for how long -- or five years how many times did you run into Obama.
Grand touring -- about twenty times OK and you describe the conversation to me once I think was the first time you madam Bryant and he said earlier they got a -- -- yeah I went up and introduced myself he said oh you're the gun guy.
And I said yeah I guess so and he said I don't believe people should be owned guns well he says people should not be able to own guns that's right.
And I have heard that he had been working what the suit against.
Gun makers -- a city Chicago had and also the Joyce foundation possible.
When we get together and have watched -- talk about it.
He just -- a wrinkled his face in turned around and walked away and that was the end of our first conversation that's.
To be that's the way most of our conversations were there -- very short.
He -- soon as we start talking you turn around walk away when chick cams.
-- -- I am used to having a lot of academics who disagree with me on lots of things but.
Be an academic people usually liked arguing and talking about and the thing that really struck out to me about Barack was that.
He didn't seem to really enjoy talking to people's -- those who disagreed with them and it's not just.
He disagreed with me I really got the impression that he thought it was somehow -- for having the views that I did on -- Did you take a broader context people leave for the gun issue here but it's deeper than that as a relates to Obama -- -- trying to convey.
Well I think we're having a lot damage done to the country not only in terms of health care but in terms of the economy you we have.
Public -- about 2200000.
Dollars per family for right now federal debt you have.
Bitter situation -- we have huge increases in government spending.
Big debt -- I think we've gotten out of it and I think definitely cost but it is much slower growth and weaker employment growth.
How do you relate this to the person that you knew met and had twenty cameras with when you're at the University of Chicago.
I think he's a true believer.
I mean I think I think he's somebody who really believes in left wing type things and I think.
His goal is to change the United States I don't think he -- you know.
There was a question during the 2008 campaign.
Which -- thing was Charlie Gibson asking about.
Capital gains taxes and whether or not -- be in favor of increasing them even if it would reduce revenue.
And he said that he was and I think it's that had a goal about some type of outcome other than raising money you're accomplishing.
The types of things most people would think you'd get out of Texas just to kind of punish or take away money from certain groups of people that motivates them.
What did -- ever -- that argues on the left about guns always says well.
If you have a gun in your house it's more likely to be used against you or your family ranked U debunk that life.
But I -- there -- lots of problems with the and I think that bothers me the most about it is it actually endangers peoples' lives to make them scared -- necessarily of guns but.
There's some studies done by a public health.
Researchers and what they're doing so look at a city in and find people who died in or near home in the -- ask people was a gun owned in the home.
And then those silly if you died from a gunshot and a gun that was on there that it was that -- the did the death when people of gone back and looked at that.
The four and 44 homicides they had only eight were actually due to the gun that was in the home the other 400 of the perpetrators right.
Thought they were being -- but it does research blamed the gun outside the home.
I mean being a home for the death from outside -- -- -- thank you felt -- get a decision.
