FILE – In this Nov. 14, 1984 file photo, former President Jimmy Carter sights down the barrel of a shotgun as Reinhart Fajen, a gunstock manufacturer, checks the fit, in Atlanta as Carter stopped during a visit to the national shooting sports foundation shot show at the World Congress Center. The White House has released a photo of President Barack Obama firing a gun, two days before he is set to travel to Minnesota to discuss gun control. It shows Obama shooting at clay targets on the range at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, where he says he engages in the sport “all the time.” The image was released at a time when Obama is pushing a package of gun-control measures in response to the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. But the image of a U.S. president holding a gun is certainly nothing new. (AP Photo/Ric Feld, File)
