President Barack Obama graced Chicagoans with his presence this past weekend. On his approach in Air Force One to O’Hare International, America’s greatest gun salesman flew right past a nearby shooting range.
We don’t mean the city of Chicago…the nation’s largest open-air shooting range. Instead, the President flew past series of billboards like this one for Maxon Shooter’s Supplies and Indoor Range near O’Hare. The moment was captured for eternity by Dan McInerney.
Maxon’s owner Dan Eldridge welcomed the President to town in a Facebook post featuring the photo. “Do you suppose the President saw our billboard?”
If Maxon was a golf course instead of an indoor range, Obama might have noticed the sign. Given that the only shooting that happens at Maxon’s doesn’t involve golf clubs, it seems a safe bet that our feckless former state senator couldn’t have cared less.
