Similar to his response to the birther controversy, President Barack Obama put rumors to rest on Saturday when the White House released an image of the POTUS skeet shooting at Camp David, reports USA Today.

White House Senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted out this 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," the tweet reads 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."
