Obama, skeet shooting and the anti-gun lobby

Published: February 4, 2013 4:00 AM

Through all of the talk and debate over guns and gun ownership in our country comes the revelation that Barack H. Obama is quite the skeet shooter when at Camp David.

What will the anti-gun lobby think of this admission? Our president a shooting enthusiast? Say it isn't so.

Some years ago, President Clinton was seem on national news sitting in a duck blind in Arkansas to prove he supported shooting sports. He had on brand-new hunting clothes and a new hat that was two sizes too small.

As far as the skeet shooting story goes, it's refreshing to see some transparency at last.

NRA, me neither. They are like their own political party. Don't want on that membership list.

Well Red, I've been shooting for 40+ years and I wouldn't have gotten close to the NRA for around the last 30 years.

Maybe Pres. Obama has been packing heat ever since the community organizing days in Chicago. I wonder if former V.P. Dick Chaney taught him how to hit thoses moving targets before he left office? Maybe Obama has been shooting all along, remember how Jethro (Beverly Hillbillies) would go to the golf course all the time to shoot golfs with his hunting rifle? Nothing clears ones mind as a nose full of spent gun powder! Maybe he's an NRA member under an assumed name? I hope the pic is not just for show.
