"All the time" is so vague a phrase as to be essentially meaningless.

I see two observations to draw from this:

1) He recognizes that, while it will alienate some of his supporters, being pictured with a gun also makes him look "reasonable" and thus might facilitate the passage of legislation.

2) He is not averse to being shown with a gun. Again, this risks alienating some supporters, but it also indirectly promotes the recreational use of guns, particularly among those who are otherwise uncomfortable with them. Which isn't such a bad thing, is it?
