(AP) The White House has released a photo of President Barack Obama firing a gun, two days before he heads to Minnesota to discuss gun control.


In a recent interview with The New Republic magazine, Obama said yes when asked if he has ever fired a gun. He said we do skeet shooting all the time, except for his daughters, at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland.


The White House photo released Saturday is dated Aug. 4, 2012, and shows Obama shooting at clay targets on the range at Camp David.


The rifle is cocked in Obama's left shoulder, his left index finger is on the trigger and smoke is coming from the barrel.


Obama is pushing a package of gun-control measures in response to the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.
