Pink’s daughter Willow has been seen shooting a rifle in a post that has the internet torn.
The singer’s husband, Carey Hart, shared the clip of his seven-year-old shooting a .22 long rifle on Instagram.
“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 (30cm) pie plate from 30 yards (27 metres). Started her shooting at 3yrs old,” he wrote.
Hart, 43, added that the family only shoots for fun.
“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. #knowledgeispower,” he wrote.
In the clip, Willow is seen wearing noise cancelling headphones and her Dad is extra cautious asking ‘Wait, is the safety on?’ before Carey confirms she’s good to go.
Social media users were supportive of Hart teaching his daughter gun safety but some questioned the move, saying “In this day and age it is time for new thinking instead of following tradition and culture. The fact of the matter is that guns are killing people — children for that matter — don’t you have to agree that we need some kind of reform?”
Pink and Hart also have a son, Jameson, who turned two last month.
