A Sydney dad is behind bars, charged with pointing a gun at his young daughter, then letting her play with the weapon.
Police were investigating illegal gun possession and as part of that seized the man's phone where there was a video of him allegedly pointing a handgun at the four year-old girl and pulling the trigger.
The 32 year-old Revesby man has been charged with six offences, four of those illegal weapon possession.
Officers have seized a 25 calibre Walther TP-model pistol, two Colt 1911 45 calibre automatic pistols and a Bentley-brand 12-gauge shotgun from addresses at Revesby and Granville.
The incident has shocked senior police.
“Allowing a child to play with a firearm of any kind is reprehensible and is a serious criminal offence,” Assistant Commissioner, Mark Murdoch, said.
The dad has been remanded in custody and was to appear in court August 16, but that date has since been brought forward to Tuesday August 1, due to the seriousness of the matter.
