The camera is a good idea. It's a tough subject in general, and I waffle on the best way to handle it. In a very common-sense way, confronting/scaring/defending is the "right" thing to do, but the real-life implications and outcomes are scary as hell to say the least.
Maybe make a big scene about shielding your kids (Secret Service style) and they'll realize what they are doing. Or pack a sign that says "Don't point your gun at my kids, A$$hole"
I sympathize in a big way - there is no good way to deal with "these kinds" of people. You back off and you have regret, you confront and you may have major, life-changing regret.
Good luck out there with your kids - there is nothing better. I hope the rest of your season goes the way it is supposed to go.
