Thanks to the TheTruthAboutGuns.com for dubbing this “skeetgate”.

Remember the other day when we published President Obama’s remarks in a recent interview?

No, well here they are again:

Have you ever fired a gun?

Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.

The whole family?

Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there.”

Now, according to Fox News, sources close to the White House are saying the following:

This has only happened with the president at Camp David, at most, a couple of times, according to a source who says he has been to the retreat on a half-dozen visits with Obama.

“The only time he shot skeet was for President’s Cup,” said the source, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the presidential Marine guards. “I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn’t leave fast enough.”

Skeet shooting “is very hard,” said the source. “Especially for someone not used to guns … He couldn’t have been more uncomfortable.”
