Obama shooting picture released

Times International Desk - February 4th, 2013

The White House has released a picture of Barack Obama skeet-shooting – seemingly to settle a row over whether the president had fired a gun before.
Obama recently told the The New Republic magazine: “Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”
The photo, dated 4 August 2012, shows Obama standing in jeans, polo shirt, sunglasses and ear defenders, aiming a shotgun that has a smoking barrel.
He is due in Minneapolis on Monday to discuss his gun-control proposals. Asked this week why more had not been said about Obama’s shooting habits before, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: “Because when he goes to Camp David, he goes to spend time with his family and friends and relax, not to produce photographs.”
