White House releases picture of Obama skeet shooting at Camp David on Flickr
London, Feb. 3 : The White House has released a picture of President Barack Obama skeet-shooting to settle a row over whether he had fired a gun before.
Obama had recently told the New Republic magazine he did skeet shooting all the time during Camp David.
According to the BBC, the photo, dated 4 August 2012, showed Obama standing in jeans, polo shirt, sunglasses and ear defenders, aiming a shotgun that has a smoking barrel.
Asked why Obama's shooting habits have not been discussed before, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that 'because when he goes to Camp David, he goes to spend time with his family and friends and relax, not to produce photographs'.
The photograph apparently showed Obama shooting clay targets on the range at the Maryland retreat, the report added.
