President Barack Obama has claimed that he goes shooting "all the time", while attempting to reassure American gun-owners that he respects their rights to use firearms.
Amid conservative anger over Mr Obama's proposals to ban assault weapons as part of a drastic overhaul of US gun control laws, the president said that he was a keen clay-pigeon shooter.
Asked in a magazine interview whether he had ever fired a gun, Mr Obama said he did so with guests at the president's rural retreat.
"Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," he said. "And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations.
"And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake".
Mr Obama's plans for tighter firearms regulations were drawn up by Joe Biden, his vice-president, following the massacre of 26 people, including 20 young pupils at a primary school in Connecticut last month.

his mouth, yes.
what do either have to do with the 2nd Amendment?
...do use all a favor and take lessons from Al Gore
I've seen this movie.
I was kind of womdering how you shoot skeet with a blowgun.
And I was wondering too.
He HATES Camp David.
Tradition of hunting?
More liberal spin. The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting.
There is a rap song that refers to “skeet shooting” as one of the more disgusting activities of urban life ... it is not honorable.
Bizarre the way they’ve suddenly attached themselves to the holiness of “hunting.” There must be more going on than meets the eye.
Barak Hussein Obama - where every lie is bigger than the last one.
"...crawl around on my stomach, I track and move and decoy and play games and try to outsmart them. You know, you kind of play the wind."
They're both pathological liars.....
He took a campaign duck hunting trip with out a duck stamp
He didn’t know there was a Federal license to hunt ducks
If he ever went skeet shooting, there would be pictures by now. I’m sure we’ll get pictures shortly. As soon as the weather’s nice up at Camp David, there will be a skeet shoot...
——— we do skeet shooting all the time-——
If that is what he said, the headline is wrong. One goes skeet shooting not do skeet shooting. They corrected his grammer.
We did not hear the words but one wonders if he said skeet shoo -ting in the manner of those who say hun-ting
John Kerry like to look for and hunt wounded teen aged POW’s, and shoot them, when they cannot shoot back.
An admitted war criminal.
Look up skeet shooting in Urban Dictionary,that’s what he’s talking about.
There's nothing new about that. Just the old "divide and conquer" ploy. There are far more avid hunters in this country than there are dedicated 2nd Amendment supporters. Assure the hunters that their favorite pastime is safe and they'll go along with new restrictions.
crap shooting maybe, but nothing with a firearm.
