Obama Says He Practices Rifle Shooting With The Secret Service | All American Blogger

September 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

The all female Texas Christian University sharpshooting champions were recognized by President Barack Obama at the White House recently, and while he was shaking their hands, made a puzzling statement:

Obama told the TCU team members that he, too, practiced shooting with a rifle. “He said he practiced with the Secret Service,” said Riford, who graduated from TCU in May and now works in Fort Worth.

“It was sweet,” said Morrissey. “It was way more than we expected.”

I did some preliminary searching, and can’t find any reference to Obama ever shooting with the Secret Service.

It raises two questions for me.

First, why would he do this?

Second, if he did it, why keep it secret?

He has a reputation of being anti-gun.  Shooting with the Secret Service would be a great photo op and ammunition (pun intended) against the charges of being anti-Second Amendment.

I sent a tweet to Robert Gibbs.

If I get a response, I’ll update.  For now, I’m reaching for my B.S. flag.
