NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2013

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. ROSS of Arkansas. I thank the gentleman from Florida.

Let me just say that the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus is one of the largest bipartisan caucuses within the Congress. I think the work we do together is very important, and at a time when there's so much that divides us, this is something that so many of us are able to come together and be united on. I want to thank everyone that participates and helps make it one of the largest, if not the largest, bipartisan caucuses in the Congress.

To my friend from Florida, now that he gave me a little kind jab, let me just make the point that the Democrats have won the annual skeet, trap, and sporting clays competition for the last 3 years, and we were feeling bad about it, and so we decided that this year we would make sure that all of our shotguns had a full choke and one arm tied behind our back to try to make it more fair. And, obviously, maybe we shouldn't have tied our arm behind our back.

We congratulate you on your victory this year, and we look forward to next year as well for those that are returning.
