I was sitting at home one evening with my five small children, who ranged in ages from 10 months to 9 years, when a supposed friend walked through my front door with a gun in her hand. She pointed it at me and all I could say was,”Just please get my kids out of here before you pull that trigger!” She looked at me and said, “You’re not scared?” I replied, “No, we all got to die sometime!” She just turned and walked out my door. I WAS terrified, but not for myself. I was terrified for my children. I was very lucky that night. Unstable people should not have access to any kind of guns.
