Obama's gun not a semi-auto
TO THE EDITORS:
The photo in the paper of Obama skeet shooting shows a puff of smoke coming up a few inches from the end of the barrel. This tells me it is a gas operated semi-automatic gun, just what we are trying to do away with.
Am I right?

(Editors' note: The shotgun is an "over-under," with two barrels. The puff of smoke is that from the shotgun shell. It's coming out the top because the "ported" barrel has holes in the end, which reduces recoil. An over-under shotgun is not a semi-auto shotgun.)
