    "After the impassioned national reaction to Sandy Hook, Obama's Press Secretary finally caves in to demands from the Press Corps that the White House should release an official photo of President Obama engaged in one of his favorite (although rarely admitted to) Camp David passtimes: skeet shooting. So yes, the man who wants to control gun ownership is a gun owner himself."








    What -- it was supposed to be funny???

    Based on the photo, he either doesn't shoot skeet "all the time" or he is a terrible shot (or both).
    The stock is way too high in his shoulder- causing a black and blue shoulder if he shoots a lot.
    He should be leaning into the shot, not standing upright.
    Usually you shoot at clay pigeons when they are elevated...not level the way he is pointing. Waiting until the target is near the ground indicates a poor shooter.

    Agreed, but then he shouldn't claim he shoots skeet "all the time".

    "Damn! Cantor's a lot faster than Boehner and McConnell..."


    It occurs to me The White House releasing a photo of Obama shooting doesn't really help his push for tighter restrictions on guns and frankly, kind of makes him look like he has to prove something to someone.

    Whether its Michael Dukakis looking like Snoopy in a tank, John Kerry windsurfing, George H.W. Bush looking amazed at a cash register or George W. Bush in his Top Gun gear, these photo-ops have a bad habit of backfiring on the politicians posing for them.

    It had long been true, and prisoners knew this better than anyone, that the poorer you were the more likely you were to end up in jail. This was not just because the poor committed more crimes. In fact, they did. The rich did not have to commit crimes to get what they wanted; the laws were on their side. But when the rich did commit crimes, they often were not prosecuted, and if they were they could get out on bail, hire clever lawyers, get better treatment from judges. Somehow, the jails ended up full of poor black people.

    I've been talking with other gun owners on the intertubes. They all agree. But if that rifle is a .22, the recoil should be pretty light, sparing his shoulder. (Anyone know if that rifle is a .22? I know I can't tell.)

    As far as the targets -- I went back to the official White House Flickr page where this official White House photo has been posted. The official caption to this official photo reads as follows:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/whiteho...n/photostream/

    P080412PS-0464

    President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
    So it says "clay targets" but does NOT say the targets are airborn skeets. Possibly stationary clay targets??

    "Scratch one Domestic Terrorist."



    "Fuck Bipartisanship!"



    "What gun laws? If the President does it, it's not illegal. I have Tricky Dick to thank for that."

    Between a good and a bad economist this constitutes the whole difference - the one takes account of the visible effect;
    the other takes account both of the effects which are seen, and also of those which it is necessary to foresee. ~Frederic Bastiat
    Economics puts parameters on people’s utopias. ~Peter Boettke
    The 'social contract' is to the politician what 'original sin' is to the priest. ~Don
    The vision of the helpful and protective state is the most pervasive and counter-productive ideology in the world today. ~Don

    I tend to blame the Feds for Don, actually.
    If they'd get it right, we wouldn't need Don pointing out that they'd gotten it wrong.
