2. i wonder if he brings stevie wonder?

The president made clear that the women of the Obama family do not go skeet shooting with him.

"Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there," Obama said in the interview. "And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake."

3. against

persons with disabilities?
That is sad

Skeet Shooting

Skeet shooting is another outdoor activity enjoyed by the blind. They hear the clay pigeon as it is tossed into the air and are then able to target and fire at it. Points are given to each hit to determine a game winner at the end of a set number of rounds. Firearm safety is of paramount concern. Blind shooters should exercise the same safety guidelines as the sighted shooters by handing their weapon responsibly and not pointing it anywhere until they are in position to fire at the target.

9. the 2nd amendment is not

something you want to start an argument with me about.

really.

also not for protecting-
assault weapons, corrupt gun dealers, private sales, large magazines, exploding bullets, weirdo militias,
or your personal 'idea' of what it means.
