A 10-year-old trick-or-treater from Aiken, South Carolina shocked his neighbor when he pointed a 9 mm gun at her after she jokingly threatened to take away his candy.

The boy was trick-or-treating with a group of his friends during the incident. Although the gun was not loaded, the neighbor said he did appear to have a loaded clip in his possession.

The Augusta Chronicle reported that the 10-year-old was detained by police and released into his parents’ custody. Public Safety Lt. Turno confirmed that the weapon was recovered and that the boy got it from his grandfather without permission.

This just adds to the case made for tougher gun control laws. Simple irresponsibility has put a gun in the hands of a 10-year-old.

We’re just fortunate the boy did not pull the trigger.
