I was 12 years old when my father began molesting me. He threatened that if I told my mother, he would shoot my head off. When I was younger, I witnessed him shoot our family dog. I firmly believe that if I had told anyone, he would have done exactly that. My father was a member of the NRA. He owned too many guns.
