Jay Feely criticized for Twitter photo with daughter's prom date and gun

  • Feely into trouble

"I think people are reacting to this in a way that's overly sensitive and they just need to relax", Pavlich said. "His finger is out of the trigger well. And out of touch with no making that picture and night about you". "Oh yay - American dads have kicked off the seasons of "its pretend I'm going to shoot my daughter's date for impugning her chastity" pics", Watts responded. On Sunday, he issued an apology and said both his daughter and her longtime boyfriend knew he was joking. "I take gun safety seriously", wrote Feely, who had a 14-year National Football League career with teams including the Chicago Bears.

Feely on Saturday night wrote, "Wishing my handsome daughter and her date a great time at prom #BadBoys", with the photo that showed a gun pointed down in his right hand, his daughter's date to his right and his arms around his daughter who is to his left, smiling while looking at him.

I also could say that far more offensive than the presence of the gun is the fact that Feely is apparently standing on his tippy-toes so that he'll appear to be taller than the dude his daughter is dating.


The overreaction to the photo is an indication of how successful the left has been in demonizing guns in the face of a growing number of mass shootings, as opposed to holding the gunmen responsible for their actions.

Others felt that Feely's reliance on the trope of a father brandishing a gun to protect his daughter's virtue - whether meant as a joke or not - made it seem as though Feely considered his daughter nothing more than property to be protected.
