Obama says he goes skeet shooting ‘all the time’ at Camp David
The Hill ^ | 1/27/13 | Meghashyam Mali

Posted on 01/27/2013 5:18:45 AM PST by Libloather

President Obama says he regularly skeet shoots at Camp David and called on gun-control proponents to “do a little more listening” to gun owners in the national debate over firearms.

In an interview with The New Republic posted on Sunday Obama said that he and guests “do skeet shooting all the time” at the presidential retreat and said he understood why many rural voters were protective of their gun-ownership rights.

“Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations,” said the president. “And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake."

Obama suggested that the divide over gun reform could be traced to the split between rural and urban areas and said he hoped to “bridge those gaps” in his push to stem gun violence.

“Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas,” said Obama. “And if you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were ten, and you went out and spent the day with him and your uncles, and that became part of your family's traditions, you can see why you'd be pretty protective of that.”

Obama’s comments come as the White House has launched a forceful push to enact new gun-reform measures. Earlier this month the president signed a number of executive actions strengthening current gun laws and is pushing lawmakers to pass measures banning the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, as well as instituting universal background checks on purchasers.

The administration is mobilizing supporters to pressure lawmakers on the issue and the White House says they will hold campaign-style events to help build momentum.

Thousands of marchers also rallied on the National Mall on Saturday calling for tougher gun-control. And last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) introduced a bill which would ban the sale and manufacture of over 150 types of semi-automatic weapons and bar the sale of high-capacity clips.

But those measures face strong opposition from the nation’s gun lobby and GOP lawmakers.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-Nev.) has said he will allow a vote on any gun measures which move through the Judiciary Committee, but has voiced doubts about passing a new assault-weapons ban, which is also unlikely to advance in the GOP controlled House.

I seriously doubt it. I thought he hardly ever goes to Camp David.

But what the Democrat's focus groups must be showing about this can't be good news for the gun-grabbers.

Gun grabbers will push the meme non-stop that the only valid reasons to own a firearm are hunting and target shooting.

Are you out there, Scrappleface? If this is your work, it’s not even good satire. It’s like Jean F’ing Kerry togged up like Elmer Fudd & toting a pre-shot goose, to lull the skeptical about his views on gun control.

And does Camp David actually have a skeet range with high & low house, eight stations? Just asking.

I don’t believe this story, not for one second.

That sounds a lot like Biden hearing gunfire from a school shooting or Hillary “spiraling in” to land in Kosovo or Bill remembering “church burnings” in Arkansas.

Funny thing even a guy that doesn't shoot much cannot resist talking about when & what he shoots. But not Broncho Bamma, he never mentions the shotgun or the slingshot he shoots with. " Yeah, we go out sometimes, I like the Remington 1100". that sort of thing. Naaa. Just another lying politician lying through he teeth.

This isn’t about hunting. Nothing spinning and lying.

Seems like whenever the subject comes up, Barry and Joe talk about their love of shotguns. Someone should have asked Obozo about the make and model of the shotgun he uses ‘all the time.’

From the Urban Dictionary....

“They discovered an ancient form of birth control used by their ancestors that involved “pulling out and shooting” (much like skeet shooting) during sexual intercourse, as to not impregnate the female, or “biatch”.”

(Look up skeet)

Obama said that he and guests “do skeet shooting all the time”

I'd wager that 0bama doesn't know the difference between skeet shooting and sporting clays.

I'd also wager 0bama doesn't know how to clean a weapon (any weapon). Well, maybe his mouth...

Someone asked him about his love of skeet and he said I love them, they just take too long to cook. That is his extent of knowledge of skeet shooting, or any other kind.

I have a hard time envisioning him holding a shotgun much less firing one.

I wonder if he holds his pinky out the way he does when drinking.

What in tarnation does this have to do with the 2nd Amendment?

Where are “hunting rifle” or a “tradition” of spending the day with your dad and uncles mentioned? We are protecting our RIGHTS...not traditions!!

“”Skeet” is actually a form of birth control practiced by the African-American tribes of North America near the beginning of the 21st Century. Visionaries of the time (such as Lil Jon and Nelly) recognized the inevitable and everpresent danger of overpopulation”

As soon as the word “hunting” is used, I tune them out.

I have an AR so that I can engage a tryannical government, should they decide to do something like take away my rights.

I encourage everyone to tell every Elmer Fudd they know that as soon as ARs are banned that we are going to fully support the banning all guns and hunting. Why? Because we will already be felons, so the more the merrier.

“Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there.

??? "Not the girls"?? Is this like his idea of who hunts and shoots? Just us menfolk ya know. We're up there shooting the skeets all the time because you know, it's a man thing. But not the girls. No sir. My girl guests never want to go shoot the skeets with us. Because shooting the skeets is a manly thing you know.

Is this really how he see's gun ownership and hunting?

“Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas,” said Obama."

Guns are the same, rural or urban. What is different is the far higher percentage of dysfunctional culture in urban areas and a correspondingly high propensity for acts of violence in that 'urban' culture. And that dysfunction has been 100% subsidized and nurtured by the Federal Government. It wasn't always so.

The other game the left is playing here is to equate gun rights to hunting. They have nothing to do with hunting. The Constitution never mentions hunting and as far as I know, we have no constitutional right to hunt. But we do have the right to guns.
