Does Obama shoot like a Girl? Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn would like to find out

But the White House is not so hot on the Idea

“I want to know if he’s shooting with a 12-gauge or a 20-gauge; I prefer a 20-gauge.”

Marsha Blackburn challenges President Obama to skeet shooting contest

After President Barack Obama said in an interview published last weekend that he and his guests “do skeet shooting all the time” at the presidential retreat, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn issued a challenge Monday on national television.

“I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him,” the Brentwood Republican said on CNN. “And I bet I’ll beat him.”

Through a spokesman, Blackburn told The Tennessean she’s “not bad for a girl” at shooting skeet. She last went to a gun range nearly a year ago, but she used to co-host an annual “women’s skeet shoot-off” at a range in Maryland, spokesman Mike Reynard said.

On CNN, Blackburn said she doesn’t believe Obama’s “all the time” claim, since there are no photos of the recently re-inaugurated chief executive firing a gun and he hadn’t mentioned the hobby previously.
