White House Shows Obama Skeet Shooting (PHOTO)

There’s a new and pointless controversy brewing about President Obama. This time it involves his “supposed” love of guns.

Recently, the president mentioned that one of his newest loves is skeet shooting. He said that he “did it all the time” at Camp David in an earlier visit.

For some reason, the press didn’t believe him and the White House released the above photo to prove that he participated in the sport. It was supposedly taken in August on the president’s 51st birthday during a visit to Camp David.

It seems that the “controversy” surrounding the skeet shooting comment came because of the president’s recent push for gun control. Media were surprised that the president expressed an outward show of support for gun sport(s) while seemingly bashing gun usage as a whole.

The bottom line is that the president, like plenty of other Americans, is free to use guns responsibly for sport and recreation. No one is saying otherwise. His point, and it’s a valid one, is that without checks in place gun can and have fallen into the wrong hands. Using guns for sport doesn’t make him a hypocrite.

And who would “lie” about skeet shooting anyway? That’s petty.
