Pink’s husband shares controversial video of daughter firing gun

Pink’s husband Carey Hart has shown his 7-year-old daughter how to shoot. A video was posted to Instagram, where 7-year-old Willow is focusing intently on the rifle and her target before firing the rifle.

The caption reads:

“Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days. Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards. Started her shooting at 3yrs old.” Hart explained.

Hart then goes on to say:

“For the record non of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands.”

He ended the post with the hashtag "#knowledgeispower".

Willow can be heard in the video asking if the safety is on before taking a shot.

It’s clear that Hart expected a negative reaction by the wording in his post, but he has received a flood of support from commenters all around the world.

One user said that it was “parenting done right!” whereas another said that they were happy “she’s learning how to handle them responsibly".

A commenter even explained how Australians can get involved with shooting for sport.

“Anyone that is uncomfortable with firearms in a country with relatively strict gun control, do a quick Google for rifle ranges near you,” the user explained.

“Go down talk to the range officer and find out what you need to do to try it (in qld Australia just fill in the paperwork and be supervised by an RO). You may not want to take up shooting, but at least you will have an understanding of how safe it is.

“Hey, you never know, you might really enjoy it.”
