Rep. Blackburn Challenges Obama To Skeet Shooting Contest

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) challenged President Obama to a skeet-shooting contest Monday night and said she is confident she would win. 

After Obama remarked that he goes skeet shooting regularly at Camp David in an interview with The New Republic, people have begun to wonder why the public has never seen a picture of the president shooting. Rep. Blackburn is among those skeptical that Obama really does go skeet shooting often.

“I think it is a relevant point of conversation. If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why has he not referenced it at any point in time as we have had this gun debate that is ongoing?” Blackburn said on CNN. “You would have thought it would have been a point of reference.” 

Blackburn proceeded to challenge the president. “I’ll tell you what I do think, I think he should invite me to Camp David and I’ll go skeet shooting with him, and I bet i’ll beat him.”

“It’s a great hobby and I would hope that the president does enjoy it,” Blackburn added.
