My husband did all of the shopping for X-mas this year. He would not tell me what he got our two boys for X-mas. He wanted it to be a surprise for all of us. Well I was l looking at the box, and it hit me what it was. I thought it was pelt gun, but he told me it was a Youth 22 Rifle. Our oldest son is almost 5 and that is who the gun is for. I was so mad when I found out. I don't think a 5 year old is old enough to have a real gun. He has a 14 year old cousin that just shot himself in the foot with a rifle over Thanksgiving holidays. If that can happen to a 14 year old then something much worse could happen to a 5 year old. We also have a 2 year old that something could happen to. I told him he had to take it back and he said NO! I want to break the thing so bad. He told me that he was the man the man of the house and it was his decision. But I think that a gift like that should be talked about between husband and wife before it is bought. What do ya'll think?
