Aubrey Huff says he’s teaching sons to use guns ‘in unlikely event Bernie Sanders beats Donald Trump in 2020’



Former Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff made national news with a tweet sent out from his official Twitter account on Monday, that featured a picture of Huff holding a paper human silhouette shooting target with multiple bullet holes in it, with the following caption:

“Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event Bernie Sanders beats Donald Trump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must. By the way most the head shots were theirs. @NRA @WatchChad #2ndAmendment”

The tweet sparked nearly 33,000 comments — as opposed to 1,400 retweets — many critical in nature, and a handful from public figures.

Huff doubled-down on his position in the face of the social media backlash, calling his gun range outing an “amazing bonding time for dads and sons.” He then posted the following tweet on Wednesday, saying that although he’d been reported to both the FBI and Twitter for his post, he’s been informed by the website that he’s not in violation of their policies.

This is far from the first time Huff has been involved in a controversy sparked by his tweets. In 2017, he made comments praising President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel from seven majority-Muslim countries, and was critical of the protests that followed. He later deleted and apologized for the tweets, although stood by his political beliefs.

Later that year, Huff posted multiple tweets about how he no longer believes in evolution after looking into “real evidence.”
