” 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 [sic]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.”

Here we have the ultimate horror … children being taught to shoot those “evil assault” rifles … are you lefties still conscious ?
Here’s one more just in case cardiac arrest still eludes the nannies among us …
Believe it or not you busybody milksops there are millions of us parents who have been teaching our children gun safety and shooting for as long as the kids have been old enough to absorb the lessons , just as we were taught by our parents .
And you know what ? Our households aren’t the ones that suffer from accidental shootings or juvenile delinquency . Our children grow up with a healthy respect for the power of firearms instead of the irrational fear of inanimate instruments that you teach yours . Knowledge and respect prevent the disasters inherent with ignorant curiosity .
It is only a desire to maintain my son’s and my own privacy that prevents me from posting video of my 11 year old blazing away at the range with a full auto HK MP-5 . He’s an awesome shot with that , pistols and rifles . Soon to be better than his dad . That flick would surely require the paramedics .
