Barack Obama: Hey, We Do Skeet Shooting All the Time at Camp David

Maybe he meant squirt fights?

Barack Obama told reporters he went skeet shooting at Camp David all the time.
The AP reported:

President Barack Obama says gun-control advocates should be better listeners in the debate over firearms in America.

In an interview with The New Republic, Obama says he has “a profound respect” for the tradition of hunting that dates back for generations.

“And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake. 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,” he says.

Obama has called for a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines and is pushing other policies following the mass shooting last month at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. In response, gun-rights advocates have accused Obama and others of ignoring the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

The president says it’s understandable that people are protective of their family traditions when it comes to hunting.

“So it’s trying to bridge those gaps that I think is going to be part of the biggest task over the next several months. And that means that advocates of gun control have to do a little more listening than they do sometimes,” he says.

Has Obama himself ever fired a gun?

“Yes,” the president says, “in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”

Funny. There’s no record of any skeet shooting going on.

    ‘Skeet shooting at Camp David all the time’, are you kidding me? When was the last time Zero went to CD? The 2nd is not about protecting rights for hunters. I’m with Ted.

  • Leslie Brillstein

    The 2nd Amendment exists so that we can unintentionally shoot each other:

    Gun store employee unintentionally shot by another employee

    “A 58-year-old woman was working at Dawsonville Gun and Pawn shop in Dawsonville, Georgia when she was unintentionally shot in the leg by another employee.

    . . .”

    This whole gun control “debate” is nothing more than a smoke screen for us “little people” while the “ONE” grabs more power right under our eyes. No one expects either the house or the senate to approve anything. This is a classic “crisis not being wasted” as a Kabuki Theater….keep your eyes on spending and other real acts of terror from the WH

    Guess he took Bill Clinton’s advice. Somewhat:

    Maybe he should read the Federalist Papers #46, that will enlighten him facts of life. Thomas Jefferson once said “When injustice become law, then rebellion becomes duty” and almost everything Obama does rings of injustice. The 2nd Amendment says nothing of hunters or target shooters, it says “the right of the people to keep and bear Arm, shall not be infringed.” Obama claims to be a constitutional lawyer, please tell me what constitution did he study, it surely is not ours.

    Still perpetuating the lie that an assault weapon was used. 4 pistols were found in the school. the rifle was found in the trunk. LIES LIES LIES

  • BarbaraS

    This is how the Brits confiscated guns. First they said only hunters could have them but they had to put them in government storage until they were to be used, then they said no one could have them. They didn’t have to confiscate them because they already had them. Russia was the most armed citizens in the world under the Tzar but Stalin confiscated all guns and was able to murder millions of defenseless citizens. This could happen here. “Assault” rifles are just the first step. We all know how the dims (communists) chip away a little bit at a time until they have the whole thing. Their goal is an unarmed citizenry. How else can they safely control us?

    #3: I am perplexed by the intent of your post. Was the that a poor attempt at sarcasm or simply another ridiculous post by an uninformed anti-2nd amendment liberal. If it was the latter, then it was extremely pathetic to say the least.

    “Tennessee Saw An Increase in Traffic Fatalities in 2012”

    “In 2012, there were 1,019 traffic-related deaths in Tennessee…an 8.8 percent increase, compared to 2011”

    You should take your lunacy show on the road and campaign against traffic fatalities. After all, they’re unintentionally caused too.

    We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

  • rolling thunder

    It is rare to find an American politician at the national level that is so ignorant of American history, but Obama demonstrates his historical ineptitude regularly.

  • Stephana

    he says he shoots skeet all the time at camp david. When does the purple lip even go to camp david? Just another attempt at trying to look like one of the guys. Major fail idiot.

  • Amash

    This idiot even lies about what he oes when he’s not at the WH. This sissy hasn’t shot at anything, even clay, his whole life. All he knows is how to lie, which he does exceedingly well.

  • Danny

    Progs, liberals NEVER met a bad guy they didn’t try to get out of jail or never fail to try and stop the death penalty. Charles Manson murdered Sharon Tate and they want him out. Cop killers are always worshiped by movie stars.
    Demetry Smirnov verified that Illinois had BANNED its DEATH penalty BEFORE traveling here to murder his ex-girlfriend.
    “O” and many dems WANT to take the right of self defense AWAY from the good guys and give the BEASTS amongst us life and DEATH power over us. The BAD guys will only have to pick among us who they want to terrorize, rob or worse because the GOOD guys will be defenseless.

    Just a troll commenting on the negative and not the positive.

    All of my weapons are military style and none are registered. ALL obtained legally

    over decades. Same with the ammo dump. Obama will be the one starting a war.

    The citizenry will have to defend thier own rights to self defense. RIGHTS come from

    GOD the constitution just codifies them.

    Powder is dry

  • Exile1981

    Obama isn’t ignorant of the constitution he just chooses to ignore it. Like in his appointments that got struck down or any of his decrees.

  • Highlander

    Leslie, go soak your head. Oh and thanks, once again, for clearly revealing your true agenda. You people are so stupid. You claim that all you want to see are some reasonable controls on the types of guns we own, and then you proceed to drone on and on about accidental shootings as if there’s any way accidental shootings could ever be eliminated by controlling the TYPE of firearms we own.

    Leslie, any idiot can see that you hate ALL firearms, and that you have no intention of allowing ANYONE to own ANY of them. Well, I have news for you. Decent, freedom loving people despise people like you. You live in a hysterical state of fear and bigotry … a left-wing fantasy world in which you seek to impose your warped sense of social justice upon the rest of us, and that is something that we simply will not tolerate. We outnumber you three to one and it’s time you faced that fact.

    never give up your guns under any circumstance!

    besides the obvious 2nd Amendment unalienable Right this country is getting more and more dangerous!

    continued growth of gangs throughout the US, which by the way the gang capitals of the planet are in LA, Feinstein’s state, and Chicago Obama’s state! And they do nothing about it but help it grow!

    the rumblings of race war.

    the continued fanning of flames of class warfare.

    the engineered economic collapse making people much more desparate.

    possible austerity measures in the works.

    the obvious agenda by the “progressive” “liberal” Left of disarming the honest taxpaying citizen. an agenda against their political enemies! history bears this out.

    you’d have to be a fool to give up your guns in this environment!

    Don’t do it!
