Carey Hart teaches his daughter how to shoot, causing some to refuse to mind their own business
By Chris Eger
California motocross and off-road truck racer Carey Hart posted a clip of his 7-year-old daughter plinking with a .22 and social media and the masses quickly weighed in.
The short clip, showing young Willow, his daughter with pop singer Pink, clad in earmuffs and a jacket as she zips away with what looks like a scoped Ruger 10/22 with a bull barrel, went viral, causing celebrity-beat media outlets like US and Today to follow the story. Within a day the video had over 400,000 views and nearly 100K likes.
“Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle,” said Hart. “She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards. Started her shooting at 3yrs old. For the record non of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands. #knowledgeispower.”
