St. Louis, MO *--* Door-to-door danger for a young Girl Scout selling cookies in south St. Louis. The scout given a scare when she was allegedly threatened with a gun. Officers were called to a south St. Louis street Tuesday for a report of someone pointing a gun at someone else. The person with the gun was a 78 year old woman. The person she was pointing the gun towards was an 8 year old Girl Scout. Her father says they identified themselves after a knock on the door but were met with obscenities. http://www.myfoxstl.com/myfox/pages...n=3&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=3.2.1 Initially, i was horrified this tradition (selling cookies door to door) still goes one. but i've since learned girl scouts are told to always go door to door with an adult, thank goodness. the son says the family have had attempted break-ins recently and that is how he explains his mother's reaction.
