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.
