Children, Guns, Stick-Figures.

Written By Timothy McGuire  One of my greatest fears in this life is a five-year-old pointing a gun at me.  This is almost exactly parallel to my desperate fear of being “held up” by a midget or a dwarf of some kind.  This is my particular phobia, and it is not meant to indicate any … Continue reading
