Obama fancies himself a shooter…

He tells the New Republic he understands shooting culture.

FF: Have you ever fired a gun?

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

FF: The whole family?

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. 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. 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.

Uh huh. Listen, whenever a politician starts talking about hunting and rich family traditions, get ready. He is coming for your guns. Talking about skeet shooting and hunting with dad are code for “you don’t need that black rifle.”

    What a bunch of BS. Next thing he will say is that he was a pitcher for his Legion baseball team.

    Talking about the 2A only in terms of skeet shooting and hunting? Uh huh.

    Talking about a family tradition of firearms usage, while not introducing his children to safe usage and respect thereof? Mmm-kay.

    The man is so out of touch with middle America–not to mention the Constitution–that it’s not even funny.

    O’Barry’s a shooter & I’m a Marxist Revolutionary. Next thing you know, he’ll tell us he loves America & the Constitution!
