It looks like Celebrity Big Brother contestants Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have continued their bad behaviour after their exit from the CBB house, after they were slammed by Twitter users for being filmed with an arsenal of guns and admitting they love firearms.

According to the Daily Star, the controversial US duo have claimed that they 'can never have too many' weapons at home and even laughed at the UK's strict gun laws.

However, the former Hills stars' antics come just days after Oscar Pistorious was charged with killing his model girlfriend and just weeks after a gunman left 27 dead in a US school.

So, understandably, the pair were met with some very unimpressed complaints from viewers, after their Channel 5 documentary aired last night, showing them opening up their arsenal which they keep in their luxury beach house in Santa Barbara, California.

One viewer tweeted: "After everything that has happened with Pistorious the #Speidi documentary on channel 5 last night wasn't appropriate with guns ect!!" (sic)

Whilst another added: "Why do they keeep guns?! Because there hated all over the world and scared!! #Speidi"

On the TV show, Pratt said: “I want to share something with you that you cannot possess in your amazing country. I will let you have a glimpse of the amazing laws in America.”

His wife Heidi added: “This is my favourite spot.”

Then, grabbing a rifle, she claimed she only felt safe knowing they had guns at home, saying: “I love it. Going shooting is one of my favourite activities and gives me a new sense of self. It makes me feel proud to be an American. I think it’s one of the greatest rights to be an American.

“I didn’t feel safe especially with crazed fans and stalkers out there but if somebody broke into our home, this is the only thing that would actually save my life.”

And in the new edition of OK! mag, Spencer adds: “You can never have enough guns in your house."

“All of our guns are safely held in our bank grade vault. You don’t want the bad guys to get your guns.”

Speidi sparked outrage and last night the charity Infer Trust, which supports victims of gun crimes in the UK, hit out at their “ignorance”.

A spokeswoman said: “They are badly misinformed people. Last year there were 11,000 gun homicides and 30,000 gun- related incidents in the USA. This compares to 39 people shot dead and 5,911 firearm offences in the UK."

“Gun legislation in the UK works and it’s a myth to think you’re safer having guns at home.”
