8-Year-Old and Father Face Charges in Shooting

Think someone misunderstood the idea of "quality time".

An 8-year-old boy and his father face charges in a shooting at the For Kids We Care day-care center in Germantown, Md. The victim will be released from the hospital today.

John Linwood Hall Sr., 56, who owned the gun, will be arraigned today. Under Maryland law, it is a misdemeanor to store a gun where an unsupervised child can access it. According to police, the boy found the gun in a container at Hall's home. Hall, who has a criminal record dating back nearly 40 years, could face a $1,000 fine.

Oh no, not a fine! A misdemeanor to store a gun where an unsupervised child can access it? The kid didn't just access it, he brought it to day-care. How do you not notice an 8 year-old is packing heat?

The victim was shot in the arm when the boy was handling a .38-caliber Taurus revolver inside his backpack. She is expected to fully recover.

Show and tell got out of fucking hand. Here comes the day-care metal detectors.
