After the below photo of 3-year-old Adalynn holding a gun caused some major backlash among followers, the Teen Mom 2 dad posted a statement of sorts on Instagram, defending his actions and insisting all his guns are "locked up behind a closed door" and "my child is protected while in my care."

ORIGINAL STORY (11/1/16 at 1:09 p.m. ET):
One day she’s dressed up as Elsa for Halloween, and the next she’s toting a handgun?
What’s worse? Jer thought it was ok to post since the weapon is “unloaded!”
“She said daddy, let’s go hunting and shoot a coyote... lol better watch out boys she won’t miss lol,” the 27-year-old captioned the photo of his little girl smiling while holding the weapon.
“Haha p.s. yes people its [sic] a gun and its [sic] also unloaded get over it.”
But “get over it” they did not, as what followed was a lengthy argument in the comments section about gun control and whether or not it’s ok for kids to be exposed to hunting at such a young age.
Some parents seemed to be ok with the innocuous photo, saying they do similar things with their own families.
“We do the same with my kids!” one fan chimed in. “Teach them when they are young about gun safty [sic]! Good for you!!!”
Others thought it was wrong on so many levels, even with the disclaimer the gun was “unloaded.”
“Ok yeah that’s really safe letting ur [sic] 3 year old or however old she is hold a gun really now that’s what I call bad parenting,” another said.
For instance, just last week the pipeline engineer posted this photo of a couple’s Halloween costume, leading many to speculate he and his fiancee, Brooke Wehr, are expecting!
It’s just a whole other thing when the kiddos get in on the action, too.
