Photo of Baby Holding Pistol and Surrounded by Firearms Sparks Controversy


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A photo taken of a newborn baby surrounded by firearms is causing quite a stir online.

The photo shows a baby wearing a University of Alabama outfit holding a pistol while surrounded by seven other guns.

“I’m all for gun ownership, but this is ridiculous,” Alabama resident Joann Hyde told WIAT. “Including a baby in a picture with any guns is ridiculous.”

The photo was originally posted on Facebook and one person who saw the pic was outraged and then shared it on twitter. It was picked up by this CBS station.

Watch. The CBS Local reporter can't find anybody that thinks this is a good idea.
