This tells me the President Obama does not have a basic understanding of the Constitution of the United States .
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in , that "the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home."
District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), No. 07-290
Key words protects an individual right!
Does the first amendment grant us free speech? No.. it does not GRANT us free speech.
This is sobering and frightening.
