Baby might not bring troubled siblings together
Leave the area where the gun is.
Tell an adult right away.
If they are at a friend's house and they become aware that a parent or another adult has a gun out, they should follow these steps and also let you know. You may choose to talk with the other parent and perhaps not let the child go to that house, unless you are confident that the parents always lock their guns in a safe. Well-meaning gun owners also face the tragedy of gun accidents if their firearms are not properly secured.
Dear Amy: Thank you, thank you, for helping me to start my day with a laugh! In your response to "Aussie," an idiotic architect, you managed to work in a reference to Art Vandelay. This Seinfeld reference ticked me to no end.
