54. I can't imagine he would make statements like this without approval.

We know Obama does have a history with gun control. This is from the debate with Alan Keyes for the Illinois Senate:

OBAMA: Let's be honest. Mr. Keyes does not believe in common gun control measures like the assault weapons bill. Mr. Keyes does not believe in any limits from what I can tell with respect to the possession of guns, including assault weapons that have only one purpose, to kill people. I think it is a scandal that this president did not authorize a renewal of the assault weapons ban. -10/21/04

Let's not kid ourselves, it's a dangerous thing to do. I believe his natural tendency is towards gun control, and if we value being able to govern, we need to provide a very strong message on the error of this approach.

edit: clarity
