    you mean by 'full of shit' that their unhinged stance regarding guns is worth responding to on their terms? Why and how does this do anything but cede the point that guns and killing be it clay pidgins or 'terrists who will kill yer family' is the American way? How come they could not say so what Obama isn't a gun 'enthusiast'.  Well I guess that would counter the reality of his kill lists, drones, and Osama is dead but GM is alive.

      the RWNJs were full of shit....only that they released the photo for that reason.  He probably shot skeet for the same reason he plays golf and basketball--there's a range at Camp David and it's fun.  Shooting skeet doesn't make him a gun nut or put anyone at risk.  If anything, it does add a nice visual to the notion that nobody is interested in taking away your shotgun, but there is a need to deal with military-style assault weapons--and everyone should be able to get behind that.  

      One of the most powerful tools the RWNJs have is to speak of the "gun control" bogey man as if there is no difference between the shotgun you hunt pheasants with and an AR-15 with a 50 round magazine.  Showing the "gun banner" president shooting a shotgun is an opportunity we should be using to show the nuance; that the NRA line is pure bullshit.
