"It's a great hobby and I would hope that the president does enjoy it," Blackburn added.

What a stupid farking point. Who cares? What does it have to do with anything if he shoots clay targets or not?

More specifically, what does it matter to the current firearms debate? No one that I'm aware of wants to ban the doubtlessly expensive shotgun the guy uses.

That reminds me of some stupid sitcom I saw when I was a little boy. Some guy challenged another character to a game of something, and then proceeded to lose. Nothing big so far. Winner thanks him for playing, says it was fun. Then he starts getting all stupid. It get to the point where he challenges the other character to see who could spin 100 times in a chair the fastest. Of course by this time everyone is just looking at him like he's a fool. Then he takes the other character's refusal to play the chair spinning game with him as a victory.

A lot of people who own guns don't feel the need to announce that every stranger they meet, or strut around in a ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ hat and a corny 7.62 Design t-shirt.

There is a certainly a type who does, though.

Such a baller that he shoots skeet with rubber bullets and a knocks 'em down with a bounce pass.

You know, I don't think the "Skeet Shooting" mention was just a random thing. After 4 years of watching him as a President, and what always happens to the Derp Brigades when they think they have them right where they want him . . . he's probably at least good at it, and has plenty of proof just waiting to drop.

/The way I'd bet at least

Snapper Carr: Because people like you shiat their collective pants at the thought of black men with guns?


You're not that far off. There was a time where the Republican Party and even the NRA favored gun control.

It was when the Black Panther Party (the REAL one, not the two idiots posing for the cameras in 2008) was arming up.

Somewhere in China, there is a factory working 24/7 in three shifts to manufacture all of this GOP outrage, and it's still not enough.

Do you want people firing ballistic arcs into the Olympic host city? I'd hate to be downrange that day.

The solution to the gun problem...or at least a start.

1. Tougher mandatory minimum sentencing for gun crimes. The culture of criminals with guns being cool needs to change. Minimum 30 year mandatory sentence for felons with a gun etc. Think of the cultural shift in DUI with the harsh penalties now imposed. It used to be a lark to get a DUI and you'd get a pat on the back and driven home by the cop. Now it's jail, lots of money, loss of license etc. It's not a game anymore.

2. Small tax on weapons and/or ammunition sales to help defer costs of longer prison sentences and to help fund mental health programs. This is like the extra taxes that smokers pay to subsidize their impact on society.

3. Make it easier to treat the mentally ill. It's become nearly impossible to involuntarily commit those that are a danger to themselves or others. We decided that it was better for these people to remain in society (often dying on the streets) with their "civil rights" intact rather than to remove them and attempt to treat them. Make it easier to remove dangerous people from society.

Banning weapons, or a small class of scary weapons responsible for 1% of deaths, is not the solution. It will never work. Prohibition is a failed concept.

Probably like his bowling video.

But skeet shooting takes some skill, so if he's doing it, more power to him.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) challenged President Obama to a skeet-shooting contest Monday night and said she is confident she would win.

As opposed to challenging Obama at his own game, reasoned debate...

Wyalt Derp: THIS IS OBAMA'S "I DID NOT HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH THAT WOMAN"!


Well, he is black. Those people have a different meaning when talking about "shooting skeet". Blackburn may want to read up on what she's getting herself into.

On the positive side, so many people are distracted by the term "assault rifle" that they'll never get around to banning most semi-automatics. They're just happy to feel like they accomplished something.

She's dumber than a f*cking post.

During the financial crisis, she was on Bloomberg spouting all kinds of nonsensical bullsh*t and displaying to everyone that she knows f*ck all about economics.

Truly one of our more pathetic Representatives.

How can that happen if he's holding the shotgun sideways?

I don't have any photos of me shooting a gun either although I used to shoot guns all the time in my teenage years.

Once a bunch of Farkers invited me to a gun range, I declined.

I may be morbid, sullen, and manically depressed but I'm not completely insane.
