Hey everyone, OP here. Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. I called my friends and got it rescheduled for Saturday luckily, although one or two might not be able to. As for my mom, she had a joint account with me due to when I was 17, and I just haven't gotten to it to change it to just me when I turned 18 last year, because she usually never does this. My mom does seem to like my brother more than me which is a little messed up but she usually respects me and treats me very well. She's a nice person and decent parent, but a little weird sometimes. She didn't have any money to spend on his birthday due to just paying rent for the month with her paycheck. She did however have no right to use my money or cancel my plans. That was uncalled for and definitely not right. As for the gun itself as a present to my brother, he's turning 23 and just got back from a year deployment to Germany. She wanted to do something special for him and he really wanted a mosin nagant rifle for a couple years now. I would have bought it for him honestly if. she asked because I get paid tomorrow. I hope that answers all your questions!

Excuse me but WHAT? That is insane and hide your money. Some mothers are just crazy and very bad at that parenting thing.
Don't be a very unintelligent person, you can't give your mother the money, hope you update on what happens.
The fact that you were going to pay for your own birthday dinner wasn't good. I think that should have been your friends' and family's treat. Now you get nothing for your birthday and have to spend money on your brother, no, that's unacceptable. Here's an idea, how about she uses HER OWN money if she wants to buy a gun for your brother. Now schedule another dinner for your birthday, but don't tell your mom so she can't cancel it. I honestly wouldn't even invite her, she basically played favourites here.
That's beyond messed up. Tell her no and kick her out of your life. I admit to being used unjustly by my family a fair bit, being a self confessed doormat when it comes to my mother, but if she did anything like that to me, it'd make it very easy for me to walk away from her and never look back.

That could be a good investment for your family. Your brother could become a hit man, bank robber or kidnapper and make a lot of money! Odd career choice, but to each his own.
