It isn’t just AR-15s that are flying off the shelves. Shooters are also starting to experience a serious shortage of ammunition. This is partly because President Obama is using up so much ammo. He sprang a secret on us in an interview with New Republic, finally letting the cat out of the bag after all these years: Obama says he goes skeet shooting at Camp David “all the time.” Really? Who knew? I thought he just played basketball, golfed and smoked cigarettes.
When he was elected in 2008 and merely standing behind podiums emblazoned with "President ELECT of the United States of America", anyone wanting to work in any capacity in his administration had to answer a very lengthy questionairre. IIRC, it asked questions like "do you own a gun?", "have you ever fired a gun?", "does anyone you know own a gun?", etc., etc. Now Djangobama would have us believe that Camp David is a sportman´s paradise. Ha! And one more thing: Be not deceived by The Deceiver. The 2nd Amendment is not about shooting skeet.

Obammy shoots skeet in order to relax after performing operations on people for free. And after he´s done working on the gutters & leaders around the house he likes to kick back with a few rounds of taking out the old clay discs and then follow that up with a few brewskis.
What a crock and what lousy reporting! No one bothered to ask a follow up? Like do you use a side-by-side or an over & under? Remington, Browning or Benelli? Do you pull left or right?
I searched for a photo of Obammy with a gun --- any gun --- and all I found was doctored photos. We would see hundreds if this was true.
When was the last time he was at Camp David? According to all of the news media, he, Mooch and the little mooches hate Camp David. They like the luxury resorts, not the rustic camps. So, I have to say...
For all I know, the individual calling himself Barack Obama may be an avid skeet shooter. As usual with this strange man, we don´t have the facts. All we know is what he tells us about himself. The mainstream media has devoted itself to keeping as much information about him hidden as it can, and to discrediting and demonizing all who request more documented facts. The individual calling himself Barack Obama seems best understood as the fictional protagonist of a collaborative political novel written by a number of people and organizations, the latter including the liberal news media.
The mind rebels at the image of Barry banging away at clay pigeons at the shooting range. One thinks of Michael Dukakis playing tank commander. I would be very surprised if Obama is telling the truth about this particular matter.
As others have noted, the important thing is not whether the individual calling himself Barack Obama actually does enjoy skeet shooting. The important thing is that the Second Amendment and the thinking behind it have absolutely nothing to do with skeet shooting.
#17 beat me to it - I was going to ask when was the last time he was at Camp David? He is such a master liar, he didn´t even crack a smile when he said he shoots skeet at Camp David. I wonder if he even knows where Camp David is and for whom it is named - why would he, it´s part of U.S. history.
It really is amazing going into local stores and seeing ZERO ammo for hanguns, as well as ZERO .223/5.56 and especially .22LR.
Going into a sporting goods store or Walmart and finding no .22 ammo is like going into a supermarket and finding no white bread. I find this unnerving, but on another level also encouraging. It shows that there are a lot of people across the US who are paying attention and who care.
Have been *hoarding* six calibers for the past four years, bought a new and larger safe and all the ammo cans I could find knowing that if and when the Progressive communist was re-elected, that he would indeed make a move against the U.S. Constitution and he has as predicted. My Will is written to hand down all firearms and those things relative, to my very youngest so that he in return will hand down to his own offspring those *sacred instruments* that have kept us FREE!
Concealed Carry Skeetgun Permits may be hard to come by, but Rootin’ Tootin’ Sharp-Shootin’ Annie Oakley Obama has one. As an avid student of American History, he’s always been particularly interested in what was served at our nation’s first Thanksgiving dinner which we shared with the Pilgrims. His research discovered it featured quite an extensive menu. Skeet Fricassee was the main course, of course. Other delectable dishes included turkey, chicken, venison, fish, foot-long subs, In-And-Out Burgers, Big Macs and Whoppers. Plenty of veggies, too. And not surprisingly, the candied yams were especially popular at the kids’ table. And what’s Thanksgiving without both varieties of Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce? There were plenty of beverages to choose from as well, the most popular being pop-top recyclable cans of Diet Snapple.
Yep, nobody personifies America quite like Barack Hussein Obama!
Really. Must he lie about everything? He must be watching too many episodes of Downton Abbey. I wonder if he wears plus fours, a sturdy pair of brogues, and a deerstalker cap, and has a pipe clenched between his teeth while out shooting. Pfft.
He´s a disaster as president. As a human being this guy is just an immense joke who must himself be stupid if he expects anyone to believe his absurd nonsense.
I remember an episode with R. Lee Ermy, a retired Marine Gunnery Sergent, in which he fired a .12 gage automatic shotgun. The recoil was so great that it knocked the crap out of a very experienced shooter. A man that has fired a wide varity of weapons. But this was his first firing of a .12 gage.
Having said that, with someone as skinny and feeble as Obozo is, firing a round of skeet would tear his sholder off. I wonder if he even knows how many shots are fired in a round of skeet. The correct answer is 100 for a full round.
Obama is just such a dumb hypocrite that he is no longer even worth commenting about. I never watch or listen to him; unfortunately, he is on so many internet news articles one cannot avoid him. ( Just my opinion , but he is nauseating as a President of the U>S> ). How such an intolerant, ignorant, unprincipled person could be elected will be fodder for future generations of historians, if the U>S> still exists after his destructive policies are all in place. ).
This is almost as laughable as when Romney said that he shoots varmits or when that blockhead Kerry looking rather stupid in his new hunting gear trying to get a hunting license. We all know that he and his family of twits cannot stand Camp David. Moochelle is such a top notched First Lady that she probably asked Odummy if you can eat skeet. Who knows what Wookies eat anyway. Obammo is the gun and ammo dealer/buyer gift that keeps on giving. Don´t Tread On Me!
I wonder which one of his puppeteers, Soros, Axelrod or Plouffe loaded op TOTUS with this fairytale? Thev president is so self absorbed and convinced of his own elequence that he would offer this sop to the sheeple. He and Biden both need psychiatric help.
The most respectable gun culture is here to stay with the highest standards and well earned confidence, the one defining culture (missing in all the other tyrannies) that makes us always different. Even our anti gun Hitlers, Feinstein & Obama are firmly affixed to the gun culture. It´s a lovely culture. Without it, we would be a desolate, wasting away culture biding our time til the next Stalin, Hitler or Mao.
The only thing the Great White/Black Hunter shoots all the time is his mouth off. Where are the photos? I mean he surrounds himself with photographers 24 hours a day, so there has to be at least a few pix of him skeet shooting?! Another lie.
Dear President Obama: Some people do not believe you know how to shoot a shot gun. So here are a few pointers to prove them wrong.
The best way to grip the gun is to wrap your arms around the skinny end of the gun. Some people call it a barrel. Point it directly at your mid section because that thing will have quite a kick to it. Gently squeeze the trigger and make sure both barrels are cocked and loaded and watch those skeet fly to pieces.
There is absolutely nothing this character says that doesn´t have an ulterior motive. In addition it is in keeping with his habit of trying to have it both ways and talk out of both sides of his mouth. Skeet shooting? Perhaps this modest gun use will ´´evolve´´ to more substantial weapons, if required by politics. e.g. ´´Sure fellow gun users, I don´t like the idea of giving up our weapons either, but we can and we must for the greater good and for the children.´´
Let´s get this straight, The so called "good" guys want to take the guns from the "people" because they cannot be trusted after over 200 years. The "good" guys and the "bad" guys will still have their guns. We will have to depend on the so called "good" guys to protect us from the "Bad" guys who will never give up their weapons without a fight. OK question, Who is "good" and who is "bad".
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
DALLAS - A winter storm system blamed for at least 10 fatal accidents in the West and Texas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week.Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the country´s busiest airports - New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. - could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 10 deaths, half
As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America.” In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that “I don’t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” A year later, after he won the Iowa caucus, he promised, “We are not a collection of red states and blue
Remember President Barack Obama´s mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama´s account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer
Lawmakers began reacting late Saturday to news of an historic agreement that freezes key parts of Iran´s nuclear program. Here are excerpts from statements responding to the deal: House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.):"While I await specific details of the interim agreement, I remain concerned that this deal does not adequately halt Iran´s enrichment capabilities. Numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions have called for the full suspension of Iran´s nuclear activities, so it is troubling that this agreement still permits the Iranians to continue enriching. It is critical that distrust but verify be the guiding principle with which we approach
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
