    Given the handwringing over Obama's election, and the fears of losing our shooting sports and gun rights, why not be pro-active? Consider inviting him to a trapshoot and allowing him a lesson...extend that through the ATA; our ATA whose first president was John Phillip Sousa who wrote many of our most patriotic songs and marches.

    It could be a win-win; Obama, I heard (my blaring TV) in the background, indicates a need to involve all. If he doesn't at least consider the shooting sports' point of view, he loses 'cause it will be on record. If he shows, he may glean an understanding that we are not a bunch of "good old boys with hostility towards the non-mainstream", but overwhelmingly competitive and polite gentlemen, ladies, and children from all walks of life.

    If he shows, be sure to video as much as possible so no false claims by "his side" can be made re. behavior and style. Perhaps a fine gentleman like Leo could lend his services to give Obama a trap lesson.

    Other venues would be the NRA's inviting him to a Cowboy Action Shoot, etc.
    Got nothing to lose and likely a whole lot to gain.

    This may sound risky, but maybe not. As Churchill said: "Play for more than you can afford to lose and you will learn the game."

    Yes I know that the Second Amendment is not mainly about shooting sports, but at least the recreational aspects of shooting will maybe make Obama see more sides of the entire picture.

    Respectfully,

    David

    He is probably already on the invitation list to some long range target shoots.

    Obama didn't even do the compulsory campaign-choreographed camo walk through the pheasant field.


    I agree totally - he will never be seen in this environment. Why would he? He'd lose too much cred with the Soros shadow operatives who are funding him and pulling his strings.

    But he'd spread the wealth around by giving us flats of shells!!! LOL...

    But seriously, the man needs to look at all of America, not just politicos and intellectuals.

    And to the Infinity and Seitz owners: I want a new Ljutic stainless ARS. Please...you said...

    On a serious note, I feel the farmers in our country appeared to have been ignored and left out of the loop during this prez. race. I have often heard that it is the hard working farmer who is one who is first to "take it in the shorts" during wartime, military buildups, etc. And how has the small businessman/farmer's concerns been addressed? Lots of other issues went below ground as economic concerns in other areas were addressed..and I'm from an urban area..Obama, forget not that the average American is also struggling with high food and grocery bills. That is another real, factual, non-emotional issue, but highly upsetting particularly for this great food-producing country.
