Lindsay's got a gun.

On Wednesday night, Lindsay Lohan, 23, posted an eerie new photo on Twitter -- in which she holds a gun to her mouth.

Her caption explains that the grainy shot (she appears heavily made up, holding up her long dark hair with her free hand) is a "Polaroid from [a] shoot."

It's not the first time Lohan has brandished dangerous weapons with a come-hither look on her face: in 2007, sultry pics of her and Vanessa Minnillo playing with knives hit the web.

The new gun snapshot comes at a time when Lohan's father Michael claims that he fears for his daughter's life. Following a failed attempt to stage an intervention, Michael Lohan said via his attorney that he wants to "save and protect his daughter" from what he calls a "serious drug [and] alcohol problem." The estranged dad, his lawyer Lisa Bloom said, wants to "prevent Lindsay from becoming another Marilyn Monroe, Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, or Corey Haim."

Lohan has denied that she uses drugs; her mother Dina recently told us that the plan to file a restraining order against Michael.
