Carney has never seen a photo of Obama skeet-shooting

- The Washington Times - Monday, January 28, 2013

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday that he's not aware of how often President Obama goes skeet shooting at Camp David.

Mr. Carney, asked during a press conference if there was a photograph of the president shooting skeet, replied, "there may be, but I haven't seen it."

The suspicion comes after President Obama defended the right for hunters to own guns in a New Republic interview.

"Part of being able to move this forward is understanding the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the realities of guns in rural areas," he said.

When asked if he had ever shot a gun, the president replied: "Yes," the president says, "in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time."

After replying that he never saw a photo, Mr. Carney was quick to explain that when President Obama goes to Camp David, "he goes to spend time with his family and friends, not produce photographs."
