Skeet Shooting

I’d pay money to watch this:

“If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why hasn’t he referenced this at any point in time?” Blackburn said Monday on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.”

“I tell you what I do think,” she later added. “I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him and I bet I’ll beat him.”

Everyone out there who believes that Barack Obama shoots skeet, raise your hands.

Gee, I don’t feel much of a breeze from all the uplifted arms.

Bob Beckel asked a stupid (or misleading) question on The Five yesterday. “If the president wants to demonize gun owners, why is he saying he’s a likes to shoot guns?”

He wants to demonize people who use politically incorrect guns. You don’t shoot skeet with AR-15s (well, you could, but I don’t think it’s allowed in competition). He’s pretending he’s one of us (see, I like to shoot stuff, too!), while continuing the stupid attack on “assault weapons” (“I can have fund and, per Joe Biden, defend myself with a shotgun. That’s all that anyone should “need”).

Later, after we’re disarmed of the most militarily effective weapons, they’ll come after the shotguns. They play the long game.

Sadly, this seems relevant.

    Someone should point out to the POTUS that it doesn’t matter because the Second Amendment isn’t about skeet shooting, or hunting or any other recreational activity involving firearms.

      Nor is about which guns someone in office thinks the populous “needs”.

      Look, you don’t need hate speech. Can’t we all agree that we’re against hate speech, and work to ban it, without being accused of being against freedom of speech?

      The answer, of course, is no. If people have a right to the freedom of speech, that specifically excludes anyone from deciding what is and isn’t acceptable speech. If you have a right to bear arms then that too specifically excludes anyone from deciding which arms are acceptable. They’re all acceptable. All of them. As soon as you permit anyone to decide otherwise, you’ve lost the right you once had.

    “Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time,” says the Dear One Obama.

    Well first of all, those of us who DO shoot skeet do NOT say “we do skeet shooting”..we say you shoot skeet. Or you shoot trap, or target or sporting clays.

    Secondly I bet this is yet another bit of Obamanoid Prevarication…maybe some people shoot skeet at Camp David. But I bet he wouldn’t have the slightest idea how to open the action of a double barrel.

    Like Rand, I’d pay big money to see that skeet match.

    I bet he’s as good a skeet shot as he is a bowler.

    It’s refreshing to see someone – Erin Burnett – on outlets like CNN challenge him on this one. Although it didn’t take long for a mediaite drone to demand she apologize to His Immensness.

    I’m willing to wager good money that Obama’s skeet shooting skills rank right up there with his bowling skills.

    They came for my neighbor’s assault rifle and no one cried. After all they weren’t after my gun. They were just trying to make everyone safer. Just like when they told people not to smoke. That never went anywhere. Did it?

    “Il Dufe” only recently started to like skeet shooting. He found it fun to have Biden wrap clay pigeons in copies of the Constitution and then yell “Pull!” and blast them to smithereens. At first it was problematic because Obama found it difficult to aim the gun while doing the Mussolini chin-thrust he likes to do, but his skeet-shooting partner Steve Kroft showed him how.

    This is actually a pretty common Leftie trope: “look, I’m a sportsman myself; I don’t want to ban sporting guns, just the evil black ones…”
    Bill Clinton posed “duck hunting” for Dem-as-sportsman shots in ’92; Kerry did the same thing in ’04; now Obama.
    Is anyone really stupid enough to be taken in by this nonsense?
