Father, Store Defend Facebook Photo of Baby Holding Gun

A Connecticut father and a local gun store are standing behind a decision to post a Facebook photo of the man’s 6-month-old daughter with a bolt-action rifle resting across her lap.

The picture of the baby has been removed from Facebook after it stirred controversy last week, reports WTNH-TV in New Haven, Conn., which reported the story after a viewer forwarded the photo to its newsroom.

The child’s father, Christopher Duffy, snapped the photo at the Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post while he was shopping for the weapon, and posted it to his Facebook page. The store then shared the photo on its page. Both parties say the picture is just a picture, and there was nothing wrong with it.

“If someone wants to share something with the rest of the community, I have no problem posting it on the page,” said the gun shop’s co-owner, Mike Majewski.
