Just in time for Super Bowl XLVII (47) weekend, the White House releases a picture of Obama holding a gun, proclaiming "… up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time …"

Wow! What a revelation folks. Lest we've all forget that comment made by Obama during his run to be the first illegal alien resident of the White House and Oval Office, in addressing small town Pennsylvanians; that they were bitter people clinging to their guns and religion!

Let's take a good look at the picture of Obama shooting skeet at Camp David. The picture, as released can be found here. Since we aren't supposed to reproduce it, etc, open it in a separate window, so you can refer to it often as you read what follows.

Under the picture is this caption,

This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

All you naysayers out there, you got that—no making fun of this picture; no photoshopping it; no Obama showing up in panties, or with banners hanging from the gun barrel, or flowers shooting out the barrel, or … well, you get the picture.

Rather makes you wonder what's wrong with the picture, doesn't it?

Well, as it turns out, there is plenty wrong with the picture.

First, the gun you are looking at, in the picture, is a Browning Citori 625 12-gauge Sporting Shotgun. Pictures of this gun can be found here and here. The second link shows the best up-close pictures of the gun.

The first thing that struck me, in looking at this picture of Obama, was how Obama had the gun cradled (shouldered) against his shoulder/arm. Ever seen what happens when someone shoulders a gun that way? I can guarantee you that anyone shouldering a 12-gauge like that would only do it once. Not only would their cheek hurt when the gun recoiled into it, but their shoulder/arm would be so sore and so bruised.

Note that having supposedly just touched-off, Obama doesn't even flinch as that gun supposedly recoils. In fact, there's really no indication the gun is recoiling at all. It appears to be resting on his shoulder/arm. No recoil to be seen there! Yet a 12-gauge carries a pretty stiff recoil or kick; even with a good butt pad, kicks like a mule definitely comes to mind. Having touched off, you definitely know you've just shot a 12-gauge. As the shoulder tends to stop the backward force (recoil) of the gun, the muzzle of the gun tends to kick up. And, if you aren't prepared for that recoil, it can definitely sit you on your backside! Yet you don't see that in the picture. Albeit the gun is ported, the purpose of porting a shotgun of this type—with the ports on the upper half of the barrel—is to reduce muzzle rise for faster target recovery rather than reducing recoil, although a slight reduction in recoil is felt. Someone suggested maybe the reason we see no recoil is because Obama was shooting blanks! No pun intended, of course!

Now look at his stance. As one firearms expert explained,

You point a shotgun, you aim a rifle by holding it across your body.

So why, pray tell, is Obama aiming this shotgun?

Obama would have Americans believe that he shoots skeet at Camp David all the time; the insinuation being that he knows how to handle a gun.

Really? Why do I doubt that claim?

When you pull in on a target, you align the rear sight, front sight and the target with your eye. Now look at the picture of Obama. If you draw a straight line from the top of the front sight—what Obama would be looking over as he lined up on his target, and Obama's left eye, you will discover that the front sight is obscured by the rear sight on the gun. In other words, supposedly sighting down the barrel, Obama couldn't even see the front sight of the gun, let alone the target.

This sporting shotgun carries a barrel configuration of over/under – one barrel above, one below. When shooting skeet, as Obama claims he does "all the time" when at Camp David, one discharges both barrels, one right after the other at clay discs, also known as clay pigeons, discharged into the air from two different angles and two differing heights. That being the case, why is there a choke in the upper barrel but none in the lower barrel?

And the clays are discharged in such manner as to project them in an arcing motion, starting out lower, rising into the air and falling to earth at a distance; during that arcing flight is when the skeet shooter tries to shatter the clay by hitting it was pellets from the shotgun cartridge. So why is Obama's gun being discharged on the level? Maybe it's a new kind of skeet shooting just for Obama!

In looking at the picture, we see a plume of smoke exiting the muzzle itself and exiting the top of the gun, forward the muzzle. Obama must have been shooting black powder to produce that much smoke! Beyond that, the Browning 625 is ported forward the muzzle, four holes on each side, eight each barrel. In the picture of Obama, you can see where those port holes are on the gun – they appear as a slightly different colored segment on the gun barrel, right below where you see the plume of smoke. But notice the smoke – it's only emanating from dead center of those ports. Strange, the outer two ports, one forward, one aft, must have been plugged – the only plausible explanation for why that plume is only emanating from the center two ports on both sides of the barrel! A good picture of what those ports look like, and where they are positioned on the barrel, can be found among the close-up pictures of the gun shown here.

Now, supposedly, this picture of Obama shooting the Browning carries a date stamp of August 4, 2012 – supposedly the occasion of Obama's 51st birthday if we are to believe his forged birth certificate.

According to a Reuter's article, released on August 4, 2012, 4:52 p.m., Obama spent his day on the golf course at Andrews AF Base; going by Marine One (helicopter) the evening of August 4, 2012 to Camp David where he had his birthday dinner and spent the evening with wife, Michelle. Interestingly, the article also states,

… it was not clear whether they [referring to the Obamas] would be present at the rustic getaway [referring to Camp David] that the Obamas have visited less than past White House residents.

But Obama would have us believe that, "… up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time …" From another source, Obama qualified his statement, about shooting skeet at Camp David, by saying, "Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there." So, no skeet shooting goes on when "the girls" are there? But one of the "girls" was there on August 4, 2012 so can we conclude that, in the evening hours of August 4, 2012, no skeet shooting happened? Time constraints would certainly suggest such.

I know—they must have figured that picture might come in handy down the road, so Obama ran quick and got "in costume," they ran out there, posed Obama quick with the gun, set the film running, Obama discharged the gun, and viola, the picture. Then they ran back inside where Obama and wife enjoyed his birthday dinner. When releasing the picture seemed a good political move, the story was concocted to go with it. No sarcasm intended, of course!

While the claim being made is that the picture was released after it was questioned whether Obama had ever even held a gun, the timing of the release is interesting, to say the least.

And the mainstream media, so eager to promote every little facet of Obama's Marxist policies, even though they will be enslaved by those same Marxist policies, has been blasting that picture around the country with glee. That the media was so easily led by this picture is rather indicative of their ignorance of guns.

With regard to these media pundits, isn't supporting policies that will enslave oneself the definition of mental insanity? Considering that most of the shooters have had connections to liberal progressive (i.e., communist) ideology, maybe we need to pass a law forbidding liberals from owning guns for the safety of all law-abiding citizens!

Quite obviously, irrespective of his comment about bitter people clinging to their guns and religion, Obama—aided by the mainstream media—now wants gun-owners in America to believe he's just one of the them, looking out for their best interests.

Sorry, Obama, I'm not buying your deceit. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.

From what has been going around the internet for the past three days, neither do other law-abiding gun owners who have a real problem with your I-know-best-what-is-good-for-you-poor-dumb-masses attitude.

So the joke is on you.

My Second Amendment rights are God-given, not Obama-driven!
