Life lessons. Carey Hart proudly shared videos of his kids learning how to shoot guns on Saturday, October 10.
“Fun morning shooting with my kids,” the former professional motocross competitor, 45, captioned an Instagram slideshow of his and Pink’s daughter, Willow, 9, and son, Jameson, 3. “Willz is getting seriously good with the rifle and handling of a firearm. And Jamo absolutely loves shooting! And the rate that he is processing the handling of them, he makes me proud.”
The Inked author went on to write, “I’m a firm believer in teaching my kids to shoot, but more importantly, handle a firearm. No better sound than the bullet of your kids’ gun plucking a steel target at 30 yards. Have a great weekend, everyone. #IfYouDontLikeItScrollOn #PokeTheBear.”
A Twitter user called the California native’s decision to teach his children to use guns “badass,” but added, “I’m so confused you would support the Democrats who have stated they will take our guns Unless only the rich will be allowed the privilage [sic].”
Hart replied that the Democratic party wouldn’t take his firearms, explaining, “Why has none of the 44 before been able to take them?? … I’m a Republican who hates [Donald] Trump, so I have no choice [but to vote for Joe Biden].”
In January 2019, the former off-road truck racer defended letting his and the Grammy winner’s eldest child shoot a rifle.
“Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days,” Hart captioned a video at the time. “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 [sic] of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands. #knowledgeispower.”
In the footage, Willow asked her dad, “Can I go?” When Hart gave the affirmative, the little one clarified, “Wait, is the safety on?”
When Instagram users bashed the athlete’s choice, he called one commenter “ignorant” and told another that he planned to purchase a bow and arrow for Willow.Listen to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
