Let it go man. I really don’t understand why it is important to Republicans and the NRA that Obama has shot guns because that is irrelevant to the fact that roughly 1,400 people have died because of guns since December. The NRA needs to choose which battles to fight and not start WWIII over gun regulation. A photo released Saturday of the president skeet shooting would of silenced his critics but then again maybe not. When he did his interview with New Republican Magazine, he had answered yes to the question if he had fired a gun and sent heads spinning and left many surprised. The White House released a photo dated Aug. 4, 2012 with the caption Obama is shooting clay targets on the range at Camp David. The picture shows Obama shooting a gun wearing jeans, a polo, and earmuffs. The National Rifle Association has rejected Obama’s gun proposal and now the photo saying one photo cannot erase his lifetime support of every gun ban and every gun control scheme according to the organization’s spokesman. The NRA opposes any further background check laws or a ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. Remind me again, why people need these? The White House Press Secretary in a recent press conference was asked about the president’s skeet shooting and he could not comment on it because he doesn’t know about it . “Because when he goes to Camp David, he goes to spend time with his family and friends and relax, not to produce photographs,” Carney, said. Fun fact here folks Obama has at least one White House photographer with him at all times. The speculation is that the photo is part of a plan to make Obama appear more sympathetic to gun owners. A top official of the National Skeet Shooting Association has said the photo suggest he is a novice pointing to his stance and how he hold the gun. Maybe he is a really bad shooter because I have seen a lot of those. Who cares if he knows how to be professional shooter or not? Most people at home who are gun owners are not experts. The only reason he released a photo was to quiet his opponents and I think they are just mad that he was able to. Kudos to you Mr. President! In the interview in The New Republican he states his deep respect for hunting in this country and calls for gun control advocates to be better listeners in the debate over firearms. The NRA is trying to distract people with this ridiculousness about a photo so people can forget about gun control measure and not focus on the real problem which is gun violence. Plus for all you second amendment folks out their read your Constitution carefully and remember the time frame it was written in: DOES NOT APPLY TO TODAY. Hey I don’t have an issue with the idea of guns but if I had a dime for every time I heard one of you say guns don’t kill people, people kill people then I would be a billionaire. Remember folks it is true people kill people but guns help out a lot and that is what this debate should be about preventing those people from getting guns so easily.
