President Obama Gets New Hobby

Obama a skeet shooter? When President Obama mentioned last week that he had picked up a new hobby -- skeet shooting at Camp David -- it was a surprising disclosure by a president whose main identification with guns these days is his effort to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines. To some, Mr. Obama's newfound enthusiasm for shooting clay pigeons -- he said in an interview that he did it "all the time" at his retreat in the Maryland mountains — also seemed a bit suspicious. So on Saturday, the White House tried to silence the skeptics by releasing a photo.
