Photo ops of politicians holding guns are a time-honored tradition, in both the United States and around the world. Every time an election rolls around, morale needs to be boosted, or a world leader just needs to look like a bad ass, they'll have someone take a picture of them shooting something.
Gun ownership and shooting have been practiced by a number of presidents, many of whom had military backgrounds. In recent decades, fewer presidential candidates have served, but all have tried to court votes from American gun lovers. As primary elections approach, they'll make sure they have lots of pictures taken firing, holding, and admiring guns. Leaders around the world do the same thing - though sometimes it's to burnish their fearsome image.Check out this list of politicians in American and around the world holding guns.
