Controversy over Facebook photo of baby holding rifle (Yes, It's Getting This Bad)
WTNH.com ^ | 2/25/2014 | Erin Logan

WOODBRIDGE, Conn. (WTNH)– A report it photo from a viewer is sending shock waves across social media and the state Tuesday. The photo was snapped at a local gun store and it shows a Bolt Action Rifle, resting on a baby’s lap.

That picture of the sixth-month-old baby girl with the rifle in front of her was taken by her father at Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post. He and the store owner say it’s just a picture, others say it’s just wrong.

The baby girl is becoming very popular on social media. The picture of the baby with a rifle resting on her lap was sent in to News 8 through our Report It feature and many are reacting.

“She can’t even speak yet and she has a gun in her hand and it’s bizarre,” said Alexa Grose, Seymour.

Baby Genevieve without the gun, with her bottle and her dad, Christopher Duffy, met News 8′s Erin Logan at Woodbridge Firearms where Duffy bought the gun.

This is getting very bad! Six month old children have no business appearing on ‘social media.’

when my oldest son was a baby the photographer gave a choice of joke-type photos, one of which was a beer bottle with a beby bottle nipple on it...

Should I go back in time and turn him into the PC police?

A 1000 years from now some anthropologist will discover news reels of this “shocking event” and come to the conclusion we were all morons.

Since we've been de-evolving since the time of Adam, odds are that the 1000 year from now (IF we have another 1000 years) anthropologist would be a bigger moron than us (hard to imagine). A better analogy would be our two hundred and fifty year ago forefathers getting into a time machine and looking at us and either calling us morons or kicking our collective arses...

That's a not insignificant threat. All of us, just by being alive right now, will probably be remembered as part of "that moronic generation." Sure, history books will note that there was a small vocal minority of rational people... But do you think future generations will believe we were part of it? I'm sure my kids will, the know me. But by the time of my grandkids...

We are quite demonstrably at Idiocracy levels of societal intelligence now. Compare “Brawndo helps plants grow” To “Global warming caused record cold temps”.

No functional level of difference.

We can hope that the few truly intelligent people remaining will survive the coming collapse so that they can rebuild a liberal free earth from the wreckage.

Or there won’t be people in 100 years.

Okay.

Let’s say I put a Barbie in her hand and repeat your odd statement:

“She can’t even speak yet and she’s got a Barbie in her hand. How Bizarre.

What are yuh training her to be a girl?”

That is just wrong. Babies drool and spit up. It could harm the finish on the rifle.

I think it is way past time we as patriots confront this absurdity. We have to (as Obama said) “get up in their face) about it.

Anyone and everyone with kids or grand kids should take a picture like these and post it on Facebook. We need to desensitize these hypersensitive sheep. Guns are part of this world, and are necessary for freedom. Get over it!!!

This picture is so darn heartwarming. Any man that is really a man, a manly man, can identify with this sweet little kid’s unbridled joy. I’m loving it!!!
