Girl forces sister to play with her -- at gunpoint!

This just in from our friends at the Orlando Sentinel's Moms at Work blog: An 11-year-old West Virginia girl forced her 7-year-old sister to play with her at gunpoint last week. The gun wasn't loaded but apparently the girl didn't know that. The older girl is now being held at a juvenile detention center.

This begs many questions but here are three: Why was the gun within easy reach of the girl? And will there be charges filed against adults in the house who left the gun in easy reach? And is the little sister getting some counseling after this scary ordeal?

Ugh! Thank goodness the gun wasn't loaded.
