President Obama weighed in on skeet shooting and the perils of football during an interview with The New Republic.
The president admitted he had actually fired a weapon in a question and answer piece titled “Barack Obama is not pleased – The president on his enemies, the media and the future of football.
“Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”
He was also asked about his appreciation of football and the physical hardships it takes on the players:
“I’m a big football fan, but I have to tell you, if I had a son, I’d have to think long and hard before I let him play football.
“I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. In some cases, that may make it a little bit less exciting, but it will be a whole lot better for the players, and those of us who are fans maybe won’t have to examine our consciences quite as much.”
