White House petition for Obama to go skeet shooting with Congresswoman Blackburn

Asking President Obama to invite Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn to Camp David to go skeet shooting?
Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn has an idea — if the president is a skeet-shooting fan, why not host a bipartisan group of lawmakers at Camp David, and kill two birds (pun alert!) with one stone? It would provide an opportunity for some positive PR in terms of both across-the-aisle outreach and quelling Second-Amendment enthusiasts’ fears that Obama might be an anti-gun zealot? And if the “fact” that the president enjoys skeet shooting really is so very trivial to the overall gun debate we’re having, why did he bother mentioning it at all?
The White House says that they'll consider anything that gets 100,000 signatures.  I've, err, created just such a petition.  So get petitioning.

And a bleg to any Tennessee readers who are in her district (TN-7).  She won't accept email from people not in her district:
I am very interested in hearing your views on issues of importance to you. Due to the large volume of US Mail, email and faxes I receive, I am only able to accept messages from residents of the 7th Congressional District of Tennessee. Congressional courtesy dictates that Representatives be given the opportunity to assist their own constituents. 
 Can someone in TN-7 let her know about the petition?

How much do you want to bet that the most powerful man in the free world exhibits a massive case of "chick lean" when he fires that shotgun for the first time in his life?

ROTFLMBO @w2n!!!!

Headin over there to sign it....but, I do find it curious that, now that the petition site has become popular and folks are starting to ask the .gov to actually DO THEIR JOBS, the number of required signatures has quadrupled from 25,000 to 100,000. I mean...I knew the .gov was petty, but this is 2nd grade playground stuff here. Really, Gov?
