My next guest says President Obama isn't telling the truth when he predicts devastating consequences of the sequester trigger is pulled he points out that according to the Congressional Budget Office as we've reported.
This spending cuts this year will amount to 44 billion dollars.
Some -- 1% of the three point eight trillion dollar budget joining us now is John -- he's economist leading experts on guns.
-- law and the author of the new book after the break.
Will Obama push us over the n.'s John good to have you here.
On the book -- just recommended only to everyone at the brink by John -- good to have you here.
Right to talk to again we've we're just packed here tonight and I wanna -- first to what is going on.
With the sequester.
This is a president who's employing his personal political force almost a million folks in the organization for -- All of insurgency unions not to scare about double -- -- people -- -- it's pretty hard to believe and we just had a 21% increase in federal spending during the first two years more than inflation.
Now we're talking about 1% cut.
You know and this is -- guy when he ran in 2008 was saying promising that he would make government smaller burgers and administration.
And then even when he had.
After he had the stimulus he said maybe one maybe two years now or five years into the administration we still can't cut him that well.
But let's turn to -- to guns because this is a president for everyone.
In the administrations have all these stories about your hillbilly is talking about the you know are having an idea taking guns.
And us of salt the go after the Second Amendment every way.
Didn't happen and now just want.
Now it's happening and as you have said -- and reported.
I mean it would took what happened that day after he was elected I mean there -- a guy who decided.
The United Nations arms trade that your trade treaty.
Is the right idea.
-- is something you didn't hear about during the campaign at all.
And then all -- -- on the day afterwards he signals lose interest and every in the negotiations go for but I.
And with implications -- point being that -- to go after.
Weapons guns in this country.
-- through the international.
Treaty Brent if he can't get it done by the United States congress -- or via.
But I what think -- -- more impact in other countries but.
The thing that bothers me the most is.
How he's willing to distort facts on the gun issue.
I mean I've known infer from year to both of Chicago together and no one of persons he told it was -- to believe people should build on guns.
He's make two claims with regard to the background checks -- -- but the one thing and they go through.
The what has been that there's one point seven million prohibited individuals who prevented from buying guns because the background checks and the other is this.
Of the sales.
Don't have that protects both are false both are easy to know our fault so on the one point seven million.
He he takes a number that really should just be called initial denials any.
I think we're going too far -- -- right into the weeds.
The fact is that the Second Amendment is precious that is what separates us from the Europeans which apparently this president wants to join.
As both the status and the socialist.
-- at this point what's your reading how successful will the administration and the Democratic Party be.
Will the Second Amendment prevail and -- protect.
Well I think he's accomplishing something of -- state level he's been twisting arms and states like Colorado trying to get their laws passed.
At the federal level I don't think he's gonna get the assault -- -- through but he may get this enhanced background checks and I think the issue.
Only with -- registry because that is what for examples from Tom pulled over and says they'll it'll.
It'll never happen says program.
Well -- No they're gonna say it won't work unless they get registry they just had a memo from inside the Justice Department and indicated that they -- saying exactly that point.
And the gains continue and that threat.
Liberty has always John -- thanks so much -- thank you great to have you with us.
