You see anything wrong with this picture?

Obviously the wrong place to ask this question considering our demographics but, what the hell, anything wrong with dad posting this picture on his Facebook, or anywhere else for that matter?

A picture of a sixth-month-old baby girl with a rifle in her lap taken by her old man, Christopher Duffy, on a trip to the local trading post in Woodbridge, Connecticut. The father and the store owner say it’s just a picture. LET THE INTERNET AND COMPLETE STRANGERS BE THE JUDGE OF THAT SIR!
That picture, then posted by Duffy on Facebook, which then ended up on Woodbridge Firearms page putting a lot of people in a frenzy.“Other people being upset about it? I don’t force their kids to do anything. I don’t force them to do anything,” said Duffy. “My hand was on it, the bolt was open, it was safety checked. I’m not sure how wide the picture is. She’s clearly in her seat just sitting up, one hand on the scope, one hand on the barrel.”
The picture was on Facebook, people saw it, survived the “shockwaves” it sent through social media and now everyone is giving their opinion about how Duffy should raise his kid. How about we concentrate on how the kid should hold a gun?!? What poor form!
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."
