    I understand your reasoning and agree to a point. I do not think I could stand by and let the sons problems injure the mom. Granted she needs to do something with her grown child. At least point her in the direction of a traiing course/school/range with instuctors.

    That is an alternative to help her without becoming directly involved. I read your post and asked myself the "what if" that was my mom, aunt, granny ect..Compassion may be outdated but it will never go out of style.

    I have no association with this woman, just heard about it. She and her son are someone else problem.

    It would be wise to avoid this one. My money is on the son stealing the weapon and popping someone because he is a punk. Early 20's and still home.......I flew from the nest after high school, but was warmly taken in by the US Army

    More than a gun, it sounds like mom needs to get a backbone and tell Jr. to hit the road. He's in his 20's and has been at this stuff for several years. Odds are he's not going to change. Sooner or later he'll be found with extra holes in his body.

    IMO you've made the right decision. Stick to it.

    Thanks for posting, this is defiantly a teachable moment.
    On the surface you have a middle-aged women who suffered a serious home invasion. The knee jerk reaction is, Ya she really needs a gun. Listening to just a bit more details, and she invited the problem into her house by proxy via her son. That little detail turns a good idea into a subpoena!

    Sounds like mom doesn't need to learn how to shoot--per se. She needs to learn to think...about the situation she's in; her enablement of her son's criminal activities; acknowledging said illegal activities...and basically, learn to say "No" to her son and stop being manipulated by him. The boy needs tough love...
    Yep--this is what needs to happen--sadly the chances are about as good as a snowball's chance on an August sidewalk in El Paso.........

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    Stay out of it, like you said. You're not the father. BTW where is the father?

    You absolutely made the right call on that one. Don't get involved with these people.
