“Don’t understand why a Christian family who values life would want to own devices that were specifically designed to destroy it,” one commenter wrote.
However, in Arkansas where the TLC reality show family lives, children under 18 are allowed to use a gun...as long as they have their parents’ permission.
In 2011, John David Duggar, then 20, was photographed holding three guns with a foreign exchange student.
In an interview with RadarOnline, Jim Bob defended the family’s right to the Second Amendment saying: “Baring arms is one of our constitutional rights. We believe it is important for children to learn safety about guns and knives to learn how to use them properly.”
Recently, the family came under fire for being “anti-gay,” with many signing a petition to end the TLC show.
However, Jim Bob later said the petition only helped the show get even “more exposure.” Well, that’s one way of looking at it!
