A Missouri mother was furious after a viral video showed a teenager holding a gun at her 13-year-old son’s head.

 The video which circulated on social media, showed the 13-year-old boy on his knees and being yelled at by a few boys demanding him to kiss their feet. A boy was seen pulling out a gun and pointing it at the boy’s head. The gun was pulled away and the boy was seen being punched.

 
Emily Bridges told FOX 4 KC she was upset when her son came home with bruises on Saturday. The mother told the station her son is on the autism spectrum and she didn’t know what happened until her other son showed her a video of the incident.

“I was hurt,” Bridges FOX 4 KC. “I was angry. I was crying. I was mad. I was upset because he didn’t defend himself.”

“He just really said that they’re minors. There`s not a lot that happens to them,” Bridges said.Bridges said she went to police on Monday but said she didn’t think the officers were concerned about the incident.

My name is Audra Champion, I have seen too many stories like this story presented to you in the petition. Look at that last paragraph and ask yourself when do we decide that enough is enough?I'm a mother and would have been outraged, hurt and furious.

This story is what sparked an interest for change. If law officials would start making this a felony offense with mandatory time it would decrease the number of occurrances we all see today. A minimum of 6 months for minors 12 and under and a minimum of 18 months to 2 years for 13 and up on "first offense". This has to be a "no tolerance" criminal offense it's just getting out of hand. Enough is not being done to stop it that's where the hands of the community pull together and make change happen NOW. Please be a voice for the victims of bullying today.
