1. I am not moving this to Alternative Theory (yet). It may end up there eventually but I feel it's worth discussion now in the Gun Rights forum and there's a lot of people that don't buy the story.

2. Is this a major issue? No. Is this worthy of discussion? Absolutely. I don't care who is in the White House but when they say something provide something believable. Especially in regards to guns. Call it my pet peeve, obsession, whatever.

3. The reason I believe this picture was produced was purely for damage control. He made a statement that very few were finding it hard to believe. Only after pressure was a single photo released. The reason I started a thread about it - see #2.

That IS a bit suspicious. I know that when I go to the range, I always make sure that someone is taking a picture of me.

So the fact that it is mentioned he'd been shooting a few years previously during the Presidents Cup does not count. He does not claim to be a dedicated shooter

he shoots guns but he undoubtedly does not do it "all the time". it's an expression but he probably means "like once a year, if that". he shouldn't have said "all the time" because we all know it's not true. everyone knows this, but it's such a dumb thing to call someone on.

it's not doctored, he was shooting a gun. guns are fun to shoot, who cares

if i recall though, fienstien's bill is to make a change to the assault weapons ban to make it so it has ONE of the conditions in the original ban

the conditions for shotgun include

Folding or telescoping stock
Pistol grip
Fixed capacity of more than 5 rounds
Detachable magazine


i'm pretty sure that obama could fire 9 rounds at you without reloading his assault weapon

His quote was "Up in Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time." That means "all the time" only applies to when he's in Camp David. When he's not in Camp David it doesn't count.

Clearly, Kenyans don't make good skeet shooters.

Well we are talking about politicians. Grasping at straws is a full time job for them.
