The Duggars of "19 Kids and Counting" have outraged many on social media after giving their 16-year-old son, Jedidiah, a shotgun for Christmas.

The family posted photos from Christmas on their Facebook page, including one of Jedidiah holding his new shotgun. The photo sparked a heated debate and widespread attention on news outlets.

Comments began to roll in on the Duggars’ Facebook page, including these:

“Oh dear. Only in America is it appropriate to give a kid a gun for Christmas.” Posted by Catherine Kennedy.

“I live in the uk and in all my 42 years I have NEVER even seen a gun in real life. So glad that we have a completely different approach to guns over here.” Posted by Lindsey Pope.

“i could go on for quite a while of why this is soooo wrong.” Posted by Helen Riley.

“You can give your child of 16 a car which is just as big of a responsibility but it is all about context.” Posted by Clarissa Koehn Moulder.

“My Lord, they hunt you know. Part of the area they live in! Give it a break.” Posted by Mary Jo Bechtel.
