Cary Hart had his followers talking after his latest Instagram post. The former motocross star posted a photo of his 3-year-old son Jameson standing in front of multiple rifles. Jameson was seen staring at a .22 rifle while holding his fans in his face. Hart said Jameson was sad about his current situation despite enjoying shooting targets.

However, Hart defended his position by saying in October: "I'm a firm believer in teaching my kids to shoot, but more importantly, handle a firearm. No better sound than the bullet of your kids gun plucking a steel target at 30 yards. Have a great weekend, everyone."
Hart, 45, is a former motocross star who has two kids. He has been married to Pink since 2006, and along with Jameson, the couple also has an older daughter named Willow.
