[su_right_ad]An Evansville, Indiana couple is in trouble with the law after cell phone videos surfaced showing their 12-month-old daughter with a handgun in her mouth.

Evansville police discovered the videos after a 19-year-old man was arrested for trying to sell a handgun to an undercover officer.

Police say the man and the girl’s 22-year-old mother can be heard encouraging the toddler to say “pow” and that no one tried to stop her as she put the gun in her mouth.

Police say the mother told officers the girl was holding a pellet gun; investigators say it was a .40-caliber handgun. They say the gun’s magazine appeared to be removed but it’s not clear if ammunition was in the chamber.

Both adults face charges including child neglect and recklessness with a deadly weapon.

    Doesn’t matter if the gun was a pellet gun or not, you never allow let alone encourage a child putting a gun in the mouth, period. Mock becomes reality all too often.
