(Newser) – In what will surely be the most talked-about image of the week, the White House today released a photo of President Obama firing a gun, reports AP. It's from last August at Camp David as Obama shoots at clay targets. The release of the photo follows up on an interview he gave to the New Republic in which he said, "We do skeet shooting all the time" at the camp. It also comes two days before the president's trip to Minnesota to talk about gun control. (The Drudge Report quickly made the photo its main image, under the headline "Barry Gets His Gun!")
