Justin Bieber Comes Under Fire For Unsafe Fake Gun Twitter Pics




Justin Bieber is apparently having some fun on the set of Selena Gomez's latest movie, "Feed the Dog." The pop star appeared there Thursday night and took several photogragphs of himself brandishing a prop gun in wildly unsafe manners. The photos showed up on Twitter soon afterward.

While Bieber is met with praise in certain corners of the media for almost everything he does, these pictures have earned him some strikingly negative press.

Bieber's gun-wielding pictures come in the middle of a summer marred by gun violence, with horrific shootings occurring at a movie theater in Colorado, a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, and outside the Empire State Building in New York. And, on Friday, three people were killed at a New Jersey supermarket.

Obviously, many people are criticizing Bieber for possibly making light of firearms in the wake of these tragic shootings, especially by casually posting the photos on a site such as Twitter

6. Undoubtably. He does, however, have decent trigger discipline in that pic.

 

He got the whole "Don't point a gun at anything that you don't intend to shoot" thing very wrong, but his finger's outside the trigger guard.

5. To be fair

 

I'm sure Justin Bieber was well aware that he was playing with what amounts to a toy gun.

I doubt he has a lot of firearms experience but I wouldn't think he'd show a little more discretion with a real gun

7. Exactly. It's a toy.

It's not a gun.

8. Does he have a valid restricted PAL?

is it registered with the Firearms Centre and Ontario Provincial Police? Shouldn't someone call the London Police Service to make sure he didn't become a danger to public safety?

It also comes during the same summer that some rampage shooter shot a bunch of people in Toronto. The least he can do is show respect for his home country.

If you are decrying that Justin was doing was insensitive, stupid, and just plain irresponsible gun handling then I agree.
