I dont know how to say this but, well, I dont even know if I am asking this on the right website but, I am Jessica and I am 27 years old, and i got a son, Carl. He is only 6 years old and he is very innocent, but his father is teaching him how to use a gun! I dont even know how my husband has that gun but i love Carl and i cant let he know those things!! Well, my husband is aggressive, he already punched me and throwed me on the wall. Of course I ''fought'' back but he is too strong. He has been using drugs lately, that is an absurd! I try to protect my child but hell, I even went to the police to make an occurrence but they said they would do something about it but they DIDNT!!! Im desesperated please I love my son so much and i have this growing hatred in me that wants to kill my husband but I still love him! What should I do??

Welcome to the community Jessica. If in the United States, I suggest you try 1-800-799-7233 for help with what the next step is. The number is for the national domestic violence hotline and offers anonymous support 24/7. You are in a situation dangerous for both you and your son and need help we cannot offer on this website, but my heart goes out to you. – balanced mama Dec 18 '13 at 6:21
Jessica, you need to get your son and yourself out of that situation. Teaching your son how to use a gun is secondary to the fact that your husband is abusive. I strongly suggest you check your area for woman's shelters or places that offer support for victims of domestic abuse, and get out of there. This website cannot provide you the information and help that you need, but I sincerely hope that you are able to find it. – Beofett Dec 18 '13 at 13:11
