A shooting range in Alabama has sparked controversy after it reportedly posted a photo on Facebook showing a baby holding a firearm.

The Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex defended its decision to post the photo, which shows an infant holding a handgun and swamped by rifles, reports WJLA.

"Primarily here at Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex, we promote firearm safety, so in order to stimulate a little dialogue, we put a controversial picture in effort to get people's feedback and get some awareness about that topic,” said Lilly Ann Gibbs, a spokeswoman for the company.

Gibbs added that the shooting complex doesn’t condone the photo.
