  •  i took a gun away from a child i was babysitting (7+ / 0-)

    she was pointing it at me and her dad. she was mad we were trying to get her to go to bed. while her dad and i were taking turns on the phone w/ her mom, ,she left the room and got the gun from wherever her parents thought it was safely hidden.

    I walked over and just took it. later her dad told me it was a pellet gun for shooting rats on the farm, but I don't know. he might have just said that to keep me from worrying.

    you're right- I did react instinctively and very quickly. I guess if I had taken time to think I might have told her to put it down or something.
