Obama: Sure, I go skeet shooting all the time

posted at 9:31 am on January 28, 2013 by Allahpundit

I know you’ve seen this at Drudge, appropriately posted beneath a photo of the Hopenchange crew cracking up in laughter, but some panders are so shameless and comically implausible that they must be commemorated in a post. (Unfortunately, politicians’ need to ingratiate themselves with gun owners has been known to lead to this sort of thing.)

To believe this, you need to believe that O splits sharply from most ivory-tower liberals when it comes to recreational shooting. How likely is that? In what other ways, based on what we know about him personally and politically, does he stray from the path of the stereotypical left-wing intellectual? The only one that pops to mind is that you’ll find him at church on Sunday morning very occasionally. Maybe that’s how it is with skeet shooting — a once-a-year lark, just to get “back in touch” with the people.

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.

So it’s trying to bridge those gaps that I think is going to be part of the biggest task over the next several months. And that means that advocates of gun control have to do a little more listening than they do sometimes.

Hunting has very little to do with the Second Amendment but it’s an evergreen rhetorical sop to rural voters (many of whom live in purple states) whenever Democrats start getting grabby about guns. Clinton mentioned it the other day in warning Democrats not to condescend to their opponents, moments before he said of rural gun owners, “A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing.” Obama’s been talking up the glories of hunting since 2008 at least; he celebrated it again in the opening to his speech two weeks ago before launching into an explanation of why he needs to take executive action on guns. Listening to a liberal defend hunting is like watching a volcano start to smoke: You know what’s coming, and it won’t be good. But hey — if your concept of self-defense extends no further than long rifles or shotguns, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Continue to cling bitterly to them as needed.

The dirty little secret being obscured by O’s ode to the joys of hunting skeet is that the White House is slowly easing off a bit on the big gun-control push. OFA chose Friday afternoon, when most people are tuning out of politics for the weekend, to send an e-mail urging supporters to start calling congressional offices and pressuring them on guns. This morning, Democratic sources are grumbling to BuzzFeed that gun control may end up being to Obama’s second term what Social Security privatization was to Bush’s. Quote:

On Capitol Hill, the perception among many is that Obama has essentially written them off when it comes to gun control.

“No, they’re not talking to anybody,” a second Democratic aide said, adding “Maybe, maybe they can get something on background checks” through the House and Senate.

That’s the White House’s new plan. Focus on universal background checks, which are popular across the board in polling, as something that really might pass Congress and then try, try, try to hold as many Democrats together as possible on more aggressive doomed-to-fail stuff like the assault weapons ban. If they can at least manage a near-party line vote, then they can blame gun control’s failure on the GOP and hope that the public is peeved about that in 2014. Aside from background checks, it’s all kabuki.

So urban dads never took their kids out hunting? Me and my Dad would like to disagree.

Oh, never mind, he could always get weapons training from his buddy, Jay-Z or one of the posse.

Hunting?

Typical liberal-progressive stupidity.

The Second Amendment never mentions hunting, target shooting, deer or anything else other than what it says…clearly.

It is all about the Right of self-defense as a people.

The Second Amendment was designed as the last ditch, the final buttress, against tyranny…nothing less.

Skeet shooting?

Sure.

coldwarrior on January 28, 2013 at 9:46 AM

Yeah, sure. He probably thinks a clay pigeon actually looks like a pigeon, and trapshooting involves shooting animals caught in a snare.

forest on January 28, 2013 at 9:47 AM

What he should have said is the American life in urban areas is very different than the American life in rural areas. It is this difference that is at the core of the problems we currently have in this country. City Slickers vs Country folks. Life in the city makes one soft, any “hunter gatherer” instinct we still have in our genetics is completely lost on the urban lifestyle. If it snows 2 feet, you walk a block or two at most to get staples. For those of us in the country, if we don’t have the staples coming from our own backyard, we have to trek miles to get them or do without. My opinion is that almost every social issue we are currently grappling with in this country is because of the differences between urban living and rural living. Not that there aren’t good conservative people living in cities, and a number of lib/dims/socialists living in rural America, BUT the urban lifestyle just does not promote the type of lifestyle that agrees with conservatism. I encourage folks to look at our problems from this perspective and see if you agree.

rayvet on January 28, 2013 at 9:47 AM

I don’t believe it for a second. If skeet are being shot while he’s up there, I’d bet he’s nowhere the recreational activity that *other* people are doing. I’d bet further that it’s not occurring because the noise would be troubling to the Mooch and the spawn, if not to Obama’s big sensitive ears.

Shooting skeet is not hunting, Mr. Prezzy, just like you shooting hoops is not basketball. First of all, I don’t believe a word out of his mouth about this. Registration is not required by the constitution to keep and bear arms. There are over 22,000 gun laws on the books and the few more being proposed now won’t keep anyone any safer. An AR can be used for hunting. It’s not designed for that purpose, but it is an easy gun to shoot.

gophergirl on January 28, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Obama has studied the British model of gun confiscation via Alinksy and Sun Tzu: divide the opposition (“we liberals have no problem with shotguns used for hunting, and we hope reasonable sportsmen see the need for sensible gun control”), polarize the isolated target (“the NRA are extremists and assault rifles are eeeeeeeevil”), and then destroy the opposition piece by piece.

In the UK, pistol owners, long gunners, and hunters were told their weapons were not to be targeted, and each group let the one before them be disarmed. Now the right to self-defense is almost literally non-existent in Great Britain, as is the right to bear any sort of firearm for that purpose.

The progressives are playing the same long game here. First discredit the NRA and outlaw “assault rifles”. Pistols will be next. Then all non-single shot rifles and shotguns will be outlawed. Loose-lipped leftists at the D a i l y K o s and elsewhere have outlined just this long-term plan, including a gradual discrediting of hunting.

If they can at least manage a near-party line vote, then they can blame gun control’s failure on the GOP and hope that the public is peeved about that in 2014.

That made me giggle. Yeah. Sure. The public, which overwhelming rejects the assault weapons ban, will blame the GOP.

The reality is the public will hold those who voted for the ban accountable by voting them out of office.

ButterflyDragon on January 28, 2013 at 10:37 AM

Obama’s army was out this weekend. Me and a buddy both live in Al Green’s district, which is next door to Sheila Jackson Lee’s. He answered his door yesterday to a black couple wanting to share God’s word on gun ownership. He patiently listened to them for a minute or so and then politely unloaded on them his perspective. He had attended a 10 hour CHL class the day before.

When he mentioned Sandy Hook in the same sentence as all the minority shootings that go unreported in Houston he heard the girl say “and Chicago too”. He thinks he may have turned them around.

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

Q. Who talks like this?

A. Someone who wants to sound like they’ve done something they haven’t.

Allah, you should have evidence before calling our President a liar. Just sayin’

This should be enough:

Obama 2008 – “I Am Not Going To Take Your Guns Away, That Just Ain’t True”

But a few minutes of research on https://ixquick.com/ will only bolster this fact.

This is not so laughable.

I’m taken to understand that tyrants like guns for themselves, but not for others.

All the time, Obama says.

Is that 24/7?

Moonlight skeet shooting? Dusk to dawn, with glo-in-the-dark pigeons?

Even on Sunday, during services at the post chapel?

All the time?

Right up there with “As I always said…”

And people actually re-elected this buffoon?

“Maybe, maybe they can get something on background checks” through the House and Senate.

First will be this because people are to dumb to understand what it means. Then they will ease in the mental health angle and guns will be basically banned because nobody but government officials and law enforcement will be demeaned mentally healthy enough to have a firearm. All they will need is a panel of mental health lackeys to have a consensus with other countries that just wanting a firearm in this day and age is a sign of a mentally unstable person.

Barack Obama’s Dictionary: Skeet Shooting. The sport of hunting mosquitoes, also known as “skeeters”.

While Camp David has a skeet shooting range I seriously doubt the president has ever visited it and I want to see a photo to backup this ridiculous claim.

Mr President, would you take the shotgun from the Secret Service agent on your right and show us where the “safety” is?

Mr President, what “gauge” is your shotgun?

What’s your favorite type of “action”?

What’s your preferred “choke” for skeet shooting?

What’s the difference between “skeet” and “trap” shooting?

Who’s better at “skeet” shooting, you or Dick Cheney?
