On Mother's Day, a south Chicago church named Stacie Davis, as "Mother of the Year" for taking a stand against guns.
Stacie Davis is not a mother, but her motherly instincts kicked in last month.
She was driving in her car when she saw an 11-year-old boy walking down the street with what looked like a gun in his waistband.
She stopped, jumped out, scolded him and took the gun, which turned out to be a toy.
"I just saw a kid that had what seemed to be a gun, so I reacted."
She says she later threw the toy gun into a dumpster.
