Pink’s Husband Defends His Choice to Teach Daughter How to Shoot
Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, a former professional motocross driver, is firing back at liberals who criticized him for teaching their 7-year-old daughter to shoot.
Fox News reported that it all started on Wednesday when Hart took to Instagram to post a video of their daughter Willow shooting a .22 rifle.
“Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days,” Hart wrote alongside the video. “Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards. Started her shooting at 3yrs old.”
“For the record non of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport,” he continued. “I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands.”

One would think that liberals would be appeased by the fact that Hart and his family aren’t hunting their precious animals, but they still gave the former motocross rider tons of backlash for daring to educate his daughter about how to use her Second Amendment rights.

“There is absolutely no reason why a 3 year old needs to be shooting a gun,” one social media user commented. “It is just indoctrinating the toxic American culture that guns are somehow ‘cool’ and a ‘hobby’ idagf if it’s you 2nd amendment right – it’s complete bulls–t.”
“Maybe actually try to listen to all the people flooding your comment with an open mind instead of telling them to unfollow or block them,” another user wrote. “That in itself is so f–king childish and change will never happen that way.”
Carey Hart fires back at the criticism
Hart received plenty of other comments like the ones above, and instead of letting it slide, he decided to clap back.
“That is your opinion. I never slam people for speaking their opinion. I enjoy debate and shedding light on subjects that are sensitive like this. Now when you disrespect my country or ‘culture’ I feel I have every right to get nasty,” Hart wrote. “Now I understand that you don’t ‘give a f–k it’s my 2nd amendment right’ but I sure as hell do. For one I NEVER block anyone, but you are free to unfollow me since my American ways so deeply bother you. Goodbye.”
How dare these liberals tell Hart how to raise his child! As an American citizen, he has the right to teach his daughter how to use her Second Amendment rights. Hart’s pro-gun attitude is refreshing in Hollywood, a place where liberals are vehemently anti-gun while at the same time, benefitting financially from movies that glorify firearms. We’re glad to see that Hart refused to back down to the backlash that liberals hit him with. He should be able to raise his daughter however he pleases, without facing attacks from the left!
