A video of an ecstatic young girl receiving a gun as a gift has garnered praise as well as condemnation from viewers.
Weapons manufacturer Beretta posted a “touching” video on Facebook of a young girl named Presley crying tears of joy when she opens a gift to reveal her new sporting shotgun.
“Oh my goodness, this is crazy. Oh my, I can’t breathe,” Presley says in the video as she excitedly opens the case. “Thank you,” she adds, wiping away her tears.
“Making memories starts the moment you open your first 686,” the company captioned the video. “A touching video sent by Presley’s parents, shows the emotional moment when she realizes she finally has her very own 686 Silver Pigeon.”
The video, which has 4.5 million views to date, sparked outrage as hundreds left comments of shock and criticism.
Others, however, saw the positive side and applauded Presley being taught about responsible gun ownership.
