Your child got shot with a bb gun? Ok here is the story my ds 6 an dd5 were outside at my dh grandmothers playing we were having a cookout when a couple of their cousins about 13 came over an started shooting them with bb guns..the bb had a plastic cover over them but are still bb..I confronted the boys an told them not to shoot my kids b/c they could put an eye out not to mention it hurts like hell..So when I went to the bathroom the kids shot them again their parents were next door asleep all my dh grandmother would say is boys just don't shot at their faces wth??? So needless to say i got pissed an we left now we are going bk to her house today an I was wondering what you would do  b/c i know their parents are not gonna be there..How do i handle this before i just go off an whip the shit outta these kids..Thanks!

Ok so we went bk to dh grandmothers,,and about 10 mins after we got there the parents of the shooting kids arrived,they came directly to us with their boys. The parents apologize to us for what had happen and said it would never happen again..They then told their boys to go get their bb gun, so they did.. The mother then told them that since they couldn't properly play with the gun that they were gonna let my kids have them..lmao..so when the boys gave it to my ds he gave it to dh an said an i quote him" here dad you need to break this because it can hurt people really bad an I don't want anything that can hurt me or someone." so my dh ask my ds how he could break it an ds replied "start a fire an pitch it in."lol..so dh went to the burn can started a fire an then let ds pitch it in..lol..The other boys were so mad..lol..but by the time the night was over all the kids were playing together and having fun..So it all worked out...the parents also told us that if their kids done anything else to our kids to let them know ASAP an it would be taken care of.. Thanks for all the advice ladies!!..

Thats BS and dangerous to shoot anyone with a BB gun, I don't care if it's in the face or not!  I would have called the cops when it happened the first time!  Happens again, make sure you call this time!

you could always take the bb gun and shoot them in the leg with it assuming they don't shoot each other already

Yeah, I was gonna say take the guns. Too davgerous since they obviously can't handle them properly.

 Clearly the boys arent mature enough to handle bb guns in the 1st place

Maybe u should shoot ur husband a few dozen times than ask him how he thinks HIS kids feel beeing shot. Cuz I bet he wont like it any more than ur kids do. Im sorry but if he wont talk to the parents and u did than dont bother going to gmas. Both ur MIL and DH are part of the problem. Oh and teach ur kids how to shoot a bb gun and let them shoot their cousins and if the cousins try to run have one and u shoot them a few times. Maybe they will take a hint.
