What can I do if someone verbally threaten to kill me with a gun? 4 Answers as of June 06, 2013

My 6-year-old stepson came home the other day and said that his dad put a shotgun in his hand and said this is what he's going to use to kill me. Is that illegal, the only proof I have is what the 6 year old says and I’m not sure if he would say anything to police because his father told him not to.

So, you want someone to go to jail on the word of a six year old, is that correct.

There is no proof sufficient to establish an assault. The police would probably deny any charges, and tell you that your ex would actually have to threaten you in person before they could take any action.

That is illegal. Report it to the authorities. Ask them to get you an emergency protective order.
