A grandmother in New Mexico has been arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at two children's head and chest.


After being arrested on Friday, Lucinda Taylor of Albuquerque told police that she threatened her 7-year-old granddaughter and a 7-year-old boy because they were harassing her German Shepherd puppy, KOB4 reported.

Taylor said she pointed her .38 revolver at the young children and asked them “How does it feel to be scared?”

The boy, who lives across the street from Taylor, told his mother, who called police.

Taylor is facing child abuse charges. She was released from the Metropolitan Detention Center after posting a $15,000 bond.

In court Sunday, Judge R. John Duran ordered Taylor to get rid of her guns.

“While the case is pending, you’re to have absolutely no firearms or dangerous weapons, you understand that? You need to get rid of them,” he remarked.
