A BIKIE has posted on Facebook a photo of his little girl holding a loaded gun. Bullets are clearly visible in the chamber.The man, believed he is an associate of the Rebels motorcycle gang, one of Victoria's more dangerous gangs, was arrested during a raid yesterday at a home in north west Melbourne, the Herald Sun reports
Police allegedly found a silver handgun in his bedroom.
The man faced an out-of-session court hearing last night and was charged with firearms offences.
He was being investigated in relation to an armed robbery and was prohibited from having firearms

"It is not a game unless it is treated like a game.
