President Barack Obama has revealed that he is a regular shooter, according to an interview posted Sunday at The New Republic:

FF: Have you ever fired a gun?

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

FF: The whole family?

Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.

It is odd that the president would make that claim only now, after several years of tough campaigning, where such a revelation would have earned him both interest and praise from the voters he once dismissed as “bitter.”

It is unclear whether Obama meant to include himself in his response; he is not directly quoted as saying he personally went shooting, but that "we"--people staying at Camp David--did so. He did not include or exclude himself specifically.

Obama's PR is top notch.
