Mackenzie McKee Receives Backlash for Photo of Son Holding a Gun

Former ‘Teen Mom 3’ star Mackenzie McKee recently went deer hunting with her husband Josh and son Gannon. She shared the experience on social media of course but got mixed reviews on letting her son handle a gun.

"Don't worry momma, I'll put supper on the table" #raisingthemright

Many instagram users were outraged and disapproved of teaching a child to use a gun. Others argued that hunting at all is wrong and that Gannon is too young to understand what he is doing.

That’s why America has such a ridiculous gun problem. That attitude right there. The ease of getting hold of a gun, it’s literally insane!” One fan commented.

Others stood up for the family, stressing the importance of teaching gun safety…  “My 5 year old is going to be taught by her father how to shoot n handle a gun CORRECTLY! Not putting a gun in a child’s hand is all up to a parent and children who end up shooting at other people are children who aren’t TAUGHT how to use a gun correctly. Hunting is a way of life and how you get food on the table. How the hell do you think you eat now….you gotta kill the animals your eating.
