The Gun Nut in the White House

Posted by on Feb 02, 2013 at 1:17 pm

Do we really need such macho images from the unhinged gun nut in the White House? What about the children?

Holy skeet!

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.

    The future can not belong to those who would slander the POTUS Obama. He obviously confused skeet shooting with straight shooting.

    Note the signature smoke from a muzzle-break in the photo, above the top barrel of a VERY pricey over/under shotgun.

    This is a…dun…dun…duh…characteristic of an “assault weapon”!!!

    But Pres. Skeeter “does skeet shooting all the time”…

    Which is like saying he “does golfing all the time”!

    Yup, I saw Dukakis acting as TC in a tank once also, didn’t mean Dukakis was a tanker.

    Interesting gun angle for skeet shooting. I’m no pro but I’ve shot skeet maybe a half dozen times. I’ve never once pulled the trigger with the barrel horizontal to the ground. Not once. He’ll I’ve never shot a shotgun in my life with that angle.

    Skeet are movong and you don’t stand upright as though shooting at a fixed target. You would be bending knees and ready to swing left or right depending on flight of target. Gravity means that the target goes from high to low and you don’t see evidence that a moving target is being shot. You swing through target nad would usually fire both barrels, one after the other, as you cover target. A beginner would probably opt for an automatic as firing separate triggers takes a lot of practice and precludes shooting at multiple targets. You don’t stand upright and aim down the barrel like a pistol or rifle shot at a paper target.

    Where is a vest or some means to carry shells and place spent shells? Eye protection is used but usually impact resistant, tinted yellow or clear lense not a pair of sunglasses.

    The funny part is that the picture can be used as evidence against O’bama as an admitted user of illegal substances he is in violation of 18 USC922(g)Section 3 who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802));

    I shoot cowboy events and we normally knock down targets on the ground. Our one foray into aerials was exciting but frustrating. So I’ve fired a shotgun in a pose similar to the photo hundreds of times. But then I never said I was shooting clays or skeet.
    Very likely Obama tried out the shotgun and didn’t like it. That’s fine; some people like guns and some don’t and some people like some kinds of shooting but dislike others. I don’t ski or own a boat. If I were president, I wouldn’t be bugging people who do ski or use boats.

    Just what the fuck is Omama trying to prove by releasing this photo that is straight out of Hollywood Central Casting? His “manhood” and the illusion that he’s got a set of balls?

    I got news for you berry, stick to your girls bike and sissy-ass baseball tosses. Whatever manliness you ever had is a ship that sailed years and years ago. Stick to the choom and let real “boys be boys”.

    Whatever you’re selling at this late date is something that no one but fools and democrats are buying.

    Comrade Hussein the Immaculate is a fierce warlord that the rest of the world trembles in fear of.

    To the left-handed guys out there.
    Being right handed I thread my belt through the loops counter-clock wise like the shooter in the photo has done. Does a “lefty” loop his belt through clock wise?

  11. play nice on 6/06/13 at 3:23 pm

    never mind – in 2 seconds I had a photo of Obama golfing. Belt to the left. (jeesh…) no stand-in.

    The thing about this job, Pres Obama tells House Dems,
    <b.“the longer you’re in it – the more humble you get.”

    Hussein the fierce commando warlord breaks his skeet shooter down in the dark and oils the parts. Did you know he used that skeet shooter when he took out Bin Laden? Yup he shot Bin Laden right in the face at point blank range after grappling down from the stealth helicopter! Dat messiah he bee da one.
