FILE - In this Sept. 30, 1940 file photo, President Franklin D. Roosevelt comes ashore at Aberdeen, Md., to inspect the U.S. Army's 28,000-acre "laboratory" where the ordnance ranges from tanks to 16-inch shells and rifle bullets. Roosevelt gets a close-up of the Army's Garand semi-automatic rifle held by Capt. E.H. Harrison. 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/File)
