The video features Hart’s 7-year-old daughter, that he shares with celebrity musician Pink, plinking targets with a .22 rifle.

“Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards,” Hart wrote. “Started her shooting at 3yrs old.”

“For the record,” he also stated, “non [sic] of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with the knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands.”

As you can imagine uptight liberals immediately blasted the video, leaving numerous negative comments. 

Let it be known though, that Hart had an idea of what he was getting into. When made the post he captioned it: “Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days.”

He did address many of the comments and was largely open to civil debate with commenters, with a few outstanding instances. 

For example one person criticized, “There is absolutely no reason why a three-year-old needs to be shooting a gun. It is just indoctrinating the toxic American culture that guns are somehow ‘cool’ and a ‘hobby.'”

Hart retorted, “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 would also note that “I think this is an extremely important topic of education,” while championing Second Amendment rights.
