The Duggars seem to be making news all over the place for all the wrong reasons. On the heels of Jill Duggar's hubby Derick Dillard's cat sledding controversy, the family have found themselves at the center of another scandal, this one involving their youngest daughter Josie. All their troubles seem to stem around social media and this one is no different, as the 19 Kids & Counting stars posted a photo of a family bonding experience that show their 5-year-old daughter getting extremely close to a gun.

That's right, the family took to their Facebook account to post a picture from a fun filled fishing trip but it is what the youngest member of the clan is doing by a shotgun that is causing fans to freak out. 

According to Radar Online, the family was in Texas on vacation when they decided to get in some fishing time. In the photo a few of Josie's siblings are standing on the lake's edge a little bit away from her while she is walking on the beach next to the firearm.

However, it doesn't seem like Jim Bob would mind his daughter playing with the shotgun as he told the news site that he feels that all his children should know how to handle weapons.

"[Bearing arms] is one of our constitutional rights," the patriarch explained to the news site. "We believe it is important for children to learn safety about guns and knives to learn how to use them properly."

This isn't the first time that the family has been caught with guns as they also posted a picture of their 16-year-old son holding a 12-gauge shotgun on their Facebook page on Christmas, which we are assuming he received as a present.
