Do we really need such macho images from the unhinged gun nut in the White House? What about the children?
Amid a fierce debate in Congress over gun control, the White House today released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David.
The photo was taken last Aug. 4, on Obama’s 51st birthday.
Obama, wearing goggles and earmuffs, peers down the barrel of a shotgun while his left index finger pulls the trigger.
Bam! A spray of smoke shoots out of the weapon.
The release of the photo is a head scratcher to both supporters of gun control and gun rights.
The last thing some advocates of gun control want is an image of the president as a gun lover on the shooting range while they’re trying to get Congress to pass stricter firearm laws in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shooting massacre.
Those same advocates will simply look the other way. Or talk trash:
Cute. Acting like fifth graders now. Meanwhile they’re issuing a strongly-worded warning that you shouldn’t Photoshop this image produced and displayed with your tax dollars. Go ahead, make their day. It’s worth noting the previous image in their photostream Obama talking to Gabby Giffords.
