Assuming he was quoted accurately in this story:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,,-7277656,00.html

`And then there are people who say, `Well, he doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment,’ even though I come from a state - we’ve got a lot of hunters in downstate Illinois. And I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.

Obama didn’t mention that he does support gun control and has a record of voting for it in the Illinois Senate. He backed limiting handgun purchases to one a month, but he made no attempts to ban them. Today, he stands by his support for controls while trying to reassure hunters that he has no interest in interfering with their access to firearms.

A spokesman for Obama rival Hillary Rodham Clinton pointed out that 12 years ago when he was running for the state Legislature, Obama said in a questionnaire that he “supported banning the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.’

In addition to a ban on handguns, he also supports a ban on semi-automatic weapons.

this is old news (him being a lying liar)

the better question is, assuming that his lies are willful, are they driven by a moral imperative or an overt amorality?

he is joyless but everyone loves him
