The Telegraph--President Barack Obama has claimed that he goes shooting "all the time", while attempting to reassure American gun-owners that he respects their rights to use firearms. "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," he said. "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".On one level, I believe Obama is telling the truth. He does go shooting all the time. Not in the way you and I would. You and I would load up the truck and head out to the range or the field or a prairie dog town. Maybe we'd go out to competition, or hunting. We would shoot up ammo that we had to buy or make ourselves. Our shooting would be limited by our budget. We would be responsible for the safety of those around us and we would bare the responsibility of our actions if we were not.
Obama is the president, he isn't restricted by such droll and proletariat considerations as those of us living in "fly over" country. Obama has control of a fleet of unarmed drones that he can pilot and shoot at will. Obama has the US military that he "shoots" all the time, shooting by proxy makes just as much noise and one just as dead. I can't recall, which of the wars he campaigned against has he ended? Since people keep dying I assume they are still shooting. While we're on the topic, why is it that Obama still claims the right to kill American citizens, without trail wherever he finds them?
I wonder who has killed more innocents, wacko kids with guns in school, or Obama in control of his troops and drones? Yes Virgina, Obama goes shooting all the time.
