OutdoorHub Reporters 09.13.17
Ariel Winter, who you may have seen play the sweet teenager on “Modern Family,” is taking some heat after posing for a picture holding a gun on her hip.
The 19-year-old Hollywood actress had just passed her firearm safety test, and was obviously pretty pumped about it – and for good reason!
She posed for the black-and-white photo on her Instagram account and captioned it: “Prepping for the zombie apocalypse, obviously…💰”
Like we said, Ariel was pretty excited about completing her firearm safety class. Here’s a tweet she posted, which we’re guessing wasn’t long after completing the safety course:
When you pass your firearm safety test and get your certificate 😏😎

Seeing Winter with a firearm in her hands is something we’re becoming quite accustomed to. If you follow her on Snapchat, you might have caught her impressive display of accuracy in a story she posted back in July.
Some users reached out to congratulate Ariel for passing her firearm safety test, this one has been our favorite:
Congratulations, Ariel! Good work…you’re taking a big risk with this in anti-freedom Hollywood; hoping you’ll inspire others! 👍🇺🇸

But of course, there were some who were not so thrilled to see Ariel express her Second Amendment right:
Guns are not the solution. Not something you should be proud of
