Turned out to be an airsoft,but,It got me to thinking, if a minor attempted a home invasion or car jacking on you, would you shoot if legally justified?
I've tried to mentally prepare for any situation so I don't have to think much at the time. But this one is something I hadn't imagined before. Criminals are getting younger by the day. I have four children and COULD NOT imagine firing on a child. Maybe this will someday cost me my life. How do you feel about this?:what::what:
One of them pointed one at our car as we drove up.
I told them that there has been documented cases where police have shot children with toy guns and to never ever point them at anybody not involved in their game.
Mentally might be hard to deal with later but a gun is a gun, and it's possessor can kill you with it no matter what the age, defend yourself against it.
