Obama's Skeet shooting secret: he shoots "all the time" at Camp David

In an interview with The New Republic President Obama revealed that he can relate to those who enjoy firing guns. When asked if he's ever fired a gun, he replied: "Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time."

But as our Jessica Yellin found out, don't expect to see pictures of the president shooting any time soon. Yellin asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, how often does the President goes Skeet shooting.

"I would refer you simply to his comments. I don't know how often, he does go to Camp David with some regularity but I'm not sure how often he's done that," Carney said.

When asked whether there were any photos of the President Skeet shooting - Carney said there's a possibility that the exist, but he hasn't seen them.

He went on to say that when the President "goes to Camp David he goes to spend time with family and friends and relax not to produce photographs."

    Ms Yellin , was the gun being used at Camp David was a semi automatic ? If not ,she is not making news and she is making up a story that has no merit because the president is not against guns for hunting etc . In conclusion , Ms Yellin 's story does not add up in the gun control debate because the gun do not fit must quit assuming .
