    Gun control?

    President Obama's comments caused a stir, as people asked why he had never mentioned it before and why they had never seen photos.

    So it's true.

    The White House is responding to critics who questioned whether President Obama has ever been skeet shooting.

    White House Senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted out the picture on Saturday morning after much skepticism about the president's claim that he participates in the sport "all the time."

    "POTUS shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David on Aug. 4, 2012," reads the tweet, with a link to the photograph.

    The photo would appear to quiet the controversy that arose after an interview with The New Republic, in which Obama talked about frequent skeet shooting.

    The publication asked: "Have you ever fired a gun?"

    Obama responded: "Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time."
