Carey Hart is making it clear that he is not afraid to exercise his US Second Amendment rights against looters.
While families in Malibu are busy fighting off flames, the former motocross star declared he would defend properties affected by the Woolsey fire against thieves.
Pink's husband took to Instagram to post a picture of a dozen gun-wielding men – dubbed the "P.D.C. Posse" – standing in front of a sign that reads, "Looters will be shot on site." Hart commented under the picture that he is not one of the masked men, adding they are "a group of locals I used to live by."
"There have been sightings of looters breaking in to homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into Malibu," Hart captioned the controversial black-and-white picture.
"It's unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis," Hart added.
The Woolsey fire started Thursday night in Southern California, prompting evacuations in Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura Hills and other nearby areas as the flames pushed toward the Pacific Ocean.
Pink and Hart were among the tens of thousands of people who were forced to flee their homes. The What About Us singer expressed gratitude to first responders for their tireless effort.

"Just need to say THANKYOU to all of the firefighters. All of the first responders. All of the helpers," she tweeted Friday. "The thing to look for in tragedy is all of the helpers. We're all so grateful for your bravery and selflessness."
Although some followers supported Hart's ominous warning, others called out the father of two.
"Unfortunately, there is a lot wrong with this picture and it really goes against what you speak to in your insta posts. Pretty much sums up what's wrong with America. Looters or not," one user commented under his post.
Hart replied: "When there is a situation like this with no laws, it's time to protect yourself."
Other users referenced the deadly shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, last week, which claimed the lives of 12 people.
"It's undoubtedly wrong for anyone to break into anyone's homes especially at a time like this but there really has to be another approach to this. California just lost 12 people to senselessness and countless bullets. Could've been you, your kids or one of your friends. At some point we are going to have to evolve," another user commented.
