    84-year-old woman arrested for allegedly shooting at 'noisy' kids

    An elderly California woman was arrested Friday night after she allegedly shot a gun toward her neighbor’s children because they were “being noisy.”

    Betty Frances Sanders, 84, fired a handgun in the direction of the three children — ages 8 to 10 — as they were riding on their motorcycles at their home in Anderson, Redding Record Searchlight reported.

    The family was in the front yard of their property when Sanders and her husband approached the fence separating their two yards, the children’s mother, Angela Rollins, told deputies with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.

    Sanders allegedly complained about the children being too loud, which escalated into an argument.

    The woman then shot her handgun toward the family who were roughly 20 feet away, according to deputies.

    No one was injured in the incident.

    Sanders was arrested on suspicion of assault with a firearm and child endangerment, and transported to the Shasta County Jail. Record Searchlight reported her bail was set at $50,000.

    I suspect she forgot her glasses. Other wise she would have been charged with homicide. An 85 year old gun hand had lots of experience.

    A few weeks ago some clown rode a snowmobile across my lawn and asparagus bed. Very tempting to make like Walt Kowalski.

    A very stupid move by Granny because she could have killed any of these kids.

    That was the absolute dumbest thing I have ever seen.

















    But it was totally worth the 2:25 seconds of my life.

    An eight-year-old and a ten-year-old have motorcycles?
    And they ride them?

    When I was eight I had enough trouble staying upright on my bicycle.
    And dad didn't let me drive the Chevy.

    Probably not Harleys.

    When we were kids there was an old man the next block over who would shoot at us with a B.B. gun. He would sit on his front porch and wait for us. Mind you we would ride our bikes in the street, not on his lawn or even the sidewalk. We took it as a challenge and tried to see how many times we could go by without getting hit and he really seemed to like to try to shoot us. I guess it was a win - win. Lol.

    A few garter snakes in her mailbox would most likely stroke her out. That's what me and my brothers did to old man Farley who lived across the field...kids have no imagination now.
