Duggars Get SLAMMED on Facebook for Photo of Son Posing With a Shotgun (Screenshots)

Here’s an interesting sideshow: A photo of one of the Duggar brood holding a shotgun on Christmas morning has launched a thousand comments on Facebook, many of them arguing over the wisdom of mixing teens and firearms. I bet they think Grand Theft Auto is waaay too violent On one hand, there’s the group of peopleā€¦

    Ho ho boom. Nothing celebrates the birth of the Prince of Peace like a new gun!
    Oops, sorry Mom. Didn’t know it was loaded.

    He’s 16, not 6 so I am okay with a gift of a rifle based on his age and although our friends the gun nuts disagree – I don’t have an issue with gun ownership. He’s old enough to attend a safety course and learn proper handling and use.

    My problem is – who is going to be responsible for this task, his parents? It is logistically impossible to properly parent 19 kids. I have no idea how many of them are still young but I’m willing to bet it’s an ass-ton. Their ministry and political outreach takes them from home often, and these kids are already being raised by their siblings. Siblings should not be the ones held responsible for gun safety training too.

      What do you expect from people who have kids to keep their TV show.

    I cannot see this article and I am having to sign in to comment here. I seen others had problems earlier with this site. I have read all the other stories on this site and commented on a few. Just figured I would comment to let people know about this story, not sure if it helps but who knows.

    To be fair, that kid has way better trigger discipline than the vast majority of gun nuts.

      I’ll give him credit for not having his finger on the trigger.

    What better way to celebrate the birth of the baby jesus than with a Remington model 870.~!

    My first question .. would someone please do that beotches hair? They have 19 kids .. somebody missed the point about 16 kids ago.

    Now, let’s be fair here. He’s probably going to use the shotgun to kill only the enemies of republican Jesus – like Muslims, Jews, gays, Atheists and women.
