White House releases photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David

(WXYZ) - The White House has released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David.

The photo, which appeared on the White House's official flickr account , was taken in August of last year.

The release comes after Obama caused a minor controversy by telling the New Republic that "we do skeet shooting all the time" at Camp David in an interview where he was asked if he had ever fired a gun .

Many gun rights supporters questioned the president's statement, wondering why this was the first time the public was hearing about the president's skeet shooting.

The controversy comes amid the fiery debate over gun control that has erupted since the Sandy Hook massacre .

In the wake of the shootings, President Obama has signed executive orders mandating new gun control measures. He has also called on Congress to pass more stringent gun control legislation.
