The pair appeared in the Whiteville, North Carolina, courthouse on Thursday, May 16, to attempt to regain custody of their kids following an investigation by child protective services.
According to a photo obtained, a weapon was on David's car's front dashboard. The car was parked in the parking lot of the courthouse.
After the photo surfaced, the actress' rep released a statement saying that David's gun had to be in "plain sight" because of a law of North Carolina.
The statement read,
In the state of North Carolina, if you aren’t a felon you can have a gun with no permit. The gun has to be in ‘plain sight’ if you do not have a concealed carry permit. This is so when the cops pull you over or you’re out in public you cannot even have your shirt over the holster or you will be charged with a felony.
David has made headlines in recent years for sharing photos of his gun and bullets multiple times.
Last month, the actor admitted of shooting and killing his wife's French bulldog, Nugget, claiming that he shot the animal because it bite at the couple’s daughter, Ensley, 2.
Meanwhile, Jenelle once took out a gun during a road rage incident and the incident had aired on Teen Mom 2 in July 2018.
Following the dog drama, the actress was fired from MTV hit series. The pair tried to get the children back on Thursday but they failed.
Evans, 27, and Eason, 30, have been married since September 2017.
