    but kind of disgusted by this whole thing...It doesn't fucking matter if the president has a gun hobby, or if he has shot a weapon. But this is the point it has come to-if you don't have a gun, or if you have never shot a gun, then your opinion isn't important. In fact you probably just hate guns, ergo you MUST want to take all of them away.

    I am so sick and tired of everyone prefacing their arguments with "I am a gun owner, but...." "I support the second amendment and totally love guns, however...." When did this become a requirement to have an opinion? People who have never owned or touched a gun get shot by them every day. i.e. children.

    In the meantime, this will do nothing to convince the conspiracy theorists because they already assume President Obama has guns. That's part and parcel of their entire conspiracy (see for example that gross "Are the presidents children more important than yours?" ad) They think the guvmint is going to take away THEIR guns so that they can have all the guns and enact a tyrannical regime.

    The NRA, despite their ineptitude, have yet again moved this issue back into their wheelhouse. This PR move by the president is further proof of that.

    I take no pleasure in saying this, but we need to start facing reality and plan accordingly.

      I was talking about the photo his office just released of him firing a rifle during a skeet shoot at Camp David. Should have read the diary more carefully.
