http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/27/obama-gun-control_n_2561677.html#slide=1991272

Less than two weeks after unveiling several recommendations for increased gun control, President Barack Obama is letting his constituents know that he understands the cultural divide.

In an interview with The New Republic, Obama refers to the "reality" of urban and rural differences on the guns issue.

"If you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were ten, and you went out and spent the day with him and your uncles, and that became part of your family's traditions, you can see why you'd be pretty protective of that," the president said. "So it's trying to bridge those gaps that I think is going to be part of the biggest task over the next several months. And that means that advocates of gun control have to do a little more listening than they do sometimes."

Obama added to that perspective by admitting that he has fired a gun.

"Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," he said.

Back on Jan. 16, Obama placed the gun control responsibility in the hands of Washington, delivering a series of executive orders. His plans ranged from criminal background checks on all gun sales, to a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban, to a 10-round limit on all ammunition magazines.

"To make a real and lasting difference, Congress must act," Obama said. "And Congress must act soon."

No, Obama, that's not what we are protective of. Traditions may be nice things but that is not the point at all. The point is the 2nd amendment, that "shall not be infringed" thing. The point would be the same if the 2nd amendment said paper clips, rubber bands, pencils, whatever. If the constitution says that it is a right that shall not be infringed, then the govt cannot take it away. And THAT is the real issue.

IF he does, I'll bet he is about as good of a skeet shooter as he is a bowler..

First of all, I don't believe a word of it... Second, skeet has nothing to do with the 2nd ammendment.
