Asked in a magazine interview whether he had ever fired a gun, Mr Obama said he fires a gun regularly.

“Up at Camp David, we shoot all the time,” he reportedly said. “And I have a profound respect for the traditions of gun owners that trace back in this country for generations.”

The announcement shocked both Republicans and Democrats.  “I’m confused.  I thought he was trying to ban guns,” said Arizona Senator John McCain.

Democrats were angry.  “This is a serious blow to our cause,” said Senator Diane Feinstein, who introduced gun legislation in the house.

Wayne LaPierre, the President of the NRA, said he was proud to have President Obama as a member.  “We are going to present him with a signed 9mm gun when he comes to our meeting in Las Vegas next month.”

Mr Obama’s plans for tighter firearms regulations were drawn up by Joe Biden, his vice-president.  Vice President Biden said that he was against guns, until Barack Obama said he was for them.  “I’m going to join the NRA as well,”  Biden told WWN.
