Enraged Mom Pulls Gun on Teens Bullying Her Son

A mother in St. Louis, Missouri, went into protection mode when she pulled a loaded handgun on a group of teenagers threatening her son. According to the Daily Mail, Tracy and Don Leeser received a text from their 15-year-old son Brett, asking them for help. Tracy brought a gun, and Don brought a baseball bat to defend Brett.

Three teenage boys, Jack Herren and brothers Tyrelle and Terrence Ware, were harassing Brett. The feud began when two teenage girls got into a fight outside of the Leeser's house. Don Leeser tried to break up the fight and ended up chasing after Terrence Ware with a knife. The boys then ganged up on Don's son at the park, and he sent the SOS text to his parents.

Tracy Leeser and the boys yelled profanities at each other while Tyrelle Ware filmed the encounter. Tracy can be heard screaming, "Get the f**k away from my kid!"

Police eventually arrived on the scene to break up the fight. No one was hurt, and the gun was not fired.

"Did I intend to use the gun? Absolutely not," Tracy Leeser told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But I felt that was my only safeguard against being killed that night. Worst-case scenario, yes, I would have used it. But I didn't."

Police are investigating the incident, but no charges have been made against the Leesers. Tracy and Don stand by their decision to bring weapons to defend their son.

Their home was recently vandalized when someone fired rounds of BB gun pellets through their front window while their 8-year-old daughter was asleep on the couch nearby. She was uninjured, and the Ware brothers deny any involvement.

"I will do what I have to do to protect my family," Don Leeser said. "I will let the law try to do their job first, but I'm not going to let my wife and kids get hurt."
