MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- An Alabama gun range is under fire for posting a Facebook picture of a baby holding a handgun and surrounded by rifles.

The owners of the Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex say they posted the picture to stimulate conversation.

"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, Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex.

Shortly after the media started reporting on the photos, they were removed from from the gun range's Facebook page, and a Project Child Safe link and a video link was put up instead.
