    In 1998 Obama stated a desire to “ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.” Barack Obama’s desire to ban “all forms” of semi-autos would include a ban on most common rimfire target pistols, including those used in Olympic competition. Barack Obama’s desire to ban “all forms” of semi-autos would ban the Ruger 10/22, Marlin Model 60, and many other rimfire .22 rifles, which form the backbone of American shooting sports, from hunting to target shooting.

    Day 2 and the controversy heats up: Did Big Guy play golf or go shootin’ on his birthday? First, some information on background: Despite being surrounded by well-equipped Secret Service agents at all times, BO insists on packin’ his own: Oh yeah; it’s big. It’s black. It’s powerful. It’s Barry’s Black-Barry (BBB), and it’s smokin’ hot. BBB allows him to shoot off important text messages at any time:    After handling another crisis, Big Guy returns his piece to its holster: For an experienced shooter like BO, there is no doubt in my mind that he could squeeze in both...

    President Barack Obama is coming to Minneapolis on Monday, Feb. 4, to advance his proposals to reduce gun violence, which is a little bit like taking a boat out into the middle of the ocean to discuss the risk of fire in Joshua Tree National Park. Why doesn't he go to Chicago, where there is gun violence? And then, once in Chicago, why wouldn't he discuss that city's problem of gang violence? In fact, so long as he has the itch to take his bully pulpit on the road, Chicago is the natural, ultimate stop. Why, it is ground zero....

    Pro-regime Syrian newspaper Al Diyar reported Friday that the army has loaded four Scud missiles, each with an explosive head of 500 kilograms, and is ready to strike Israel. The newspaper also stated that the Syrian army command held a meeting Thursday evening to discuss a response to Israel, including striking research centers in Tel Aviv. Mohammed Dirar Jammu, head of political and international relations at the World Organization of Arab expatriates, said to pro-Syrian regime TV channel Alakhbarya that "the Syrian military response to the Israeli bombing of the research center, in Damascus, will be earthshaking and staggering to...

    New York - It is routinely billed as the Greatest Show on Earth - but this year it has become a platform for far more than footballers, cheerleaders, and the infamous half-time show. Beyonce performs the National Anthem during the halftime show press conference ahead of the NFL's Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan 31, 2013. Photo: Reuters/Jim Young In the past few weeks the Super Bowl, the centrepiece of American sport, has taken on a distinctly political feel. Social issues such as gay marriage, gun control, racial equality, and poverty in Ethiopia have all been put on the...

    Bob GrishamROGERSVILLE — School district officials are investigating allegations that a Lauderdale County High School teacher made slurs in the presence of students regarding first lady Michelle Obama and gays. Superintendent Jennifer Gray confirmed the investigation concerns the school’s head football coach, Bob Grisham, who also teaches driver’s education and psychology. The investigation includes a 1-minute, 24-second audiotape of Grisham asking who knows who is behind the 600-calorie school lunch. “Fat butt Michelle Obama,” he said. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.” Male voices interject comments during the discussion, at one point referring...

    An estimated hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants married to U.S. citizens will soon have an opportunity to become legal residents without having to serve a years-long punishment. President Obama proposed the policy change in January 2012 and it is scheduled to go into effect March 4. The change was proposed to end situations in which illegal-immigrant spouses (and often parents) have to return to their native countries to serve the “ban of admission” – as long as 10 years for staying illegally in the United States for more than a year.

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) has added 500,000 new members over the last month and a half. Jacqueline Otto, media liaison for the NRA, spoke to CNSNews.com and confirmed the new membership numbers: "We mark that [membership increase] from the, you know, Congressional calls for gun control and President Obama's executive orders and things like that. That's what's driving the increased membership." CNSNews.com asked: "That's approximately over what time span then?" "A month, month and a half," Otto said.

    After a mini-controversy about a claim from President Obama that he shoots clay pigeons at Camp David, the White House released a photo of “Obama” shooting a $2500 Browning Citori shotgun. Problem: It doesn’t look like the President’s watch. And that leaves aside why the President is shooting a fancy Japanese-made gun instead of a down-to-earth Mossberg or Remington.

    As of this writing, major news networks such as ABC, Fox News, CBS, and NBC have yet to report on the high court’s decision to review Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility to hold political office in the United States or any of its territories. The case is identified as Edward Noonan, et al., v. Deborah Bowen, California Secretary of State. On Feb. 15, all nine justices will gather in conference to review whether Obama used forged government documents and fake identification in order to get elected as commander-in-chief. Edward Noonan, et al., contend that if Obama had been ineligible to run...

    Barack Obama recently told the New Republic that he understands the concerns of gun owners, because “in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.” As critics chortled over both the notion that skeet shooting is what concerns gun owners and the idea that Obama shoots clay pigeons “all the time,” the White House has finally released a photo to back up its claim … and only one photo, dated August 12, 2012: That led to a barrage of questions from journalists about whether the White House could offer proof that the president had gone shooting....

    The White House has released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David from August, 2012, attempting to quell a controversy that arose when Obama said that he sympathized with hunters because he frequently went shooting himself. “Attn skeet birthers. Make our day - let the photoshop conspiracies begin!,” former White House advisor David Plouffe tweeted in a message containing a link to a photo of Obama brandishing a shot gun and wearing ear muffs and sun glasses. Conservative critics questioned the veracity of the Obama’s claims of skeet shooting because he had never been seen publicly shooting...

    President Obama warned today that 2013 “can be a year of solid economic growth” but warned “self-inflicted wounds in Washington” would hurt progress. Translation: Republicans should surrender and allow more government spending, more “stimulus,” more debt, HIGHER taxes, etc. I don’t think that Republicans will fall for this ploy since it hasn't worked so far. Perhaps it would be easier for President Obama to deal with Grumpy Cat.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House has released a photo of President Barack Obama firing a gun, two days before he heads to Minnesota to discuss gun control. In a recent interview with The New Republic magazine, Obama said "yes" when asked if he has ever fired a gun. He said "we do skeet shooting all the time," except for his daughters, at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland.

    Ever since the release of the seminal Groundhog Day movie, February 2 has become synonymous with a type of recurring déjŕ vu. The movie veers into Nietzsche's eternal recurrence of the same, Camus' Myth of Sisyphus – and even the possibility of man becoming a god-like Superman. Boy, does this have “BHO’s” fingerprints all over it or what? So I dedicate this Groundhog Day redux to our Glorious (and possibly god-like) Leader and Shadow-Master: without his most transparent administration ever we would not be able to see through the fog of government. Won’t you please join me in enjoying, again,...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama has taken on N.B.A. stars on the White House basketball court, golfed at the air base that houses Air Force One and even tried to polish his legendarily woeful bowling at the presidential lanes. But now it turns out that he has picked up a new hobby: skeet shooting at Camp David. At least that is the way he tells it. In an interview published last week, Mr. Obama said that he and his guests shot clay pigeons “all the time” at the retreat in the Maryland mountains, a revelation that surprised many and drew a...
