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.
Mr 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 Mr Obama standing in jeans, polo shirt, sunglasses and earphones, aiming a rifle that has a smoking barrel.
He is due in Minneapolis on Monday to discuss his gun-control proposals.
I guess he would be a hypocrite now if he passes legislation to outlaw high powered firearms.
