Another unbelievably stupid move leads to death of 8-year-old

For some unfathomable reason a Pennsylvania father put a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun in a backpack with his 8-year-old son's video games.   The boy unintentionally shot himself and died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child have been filed against the father. In a statement to the press, the District Attorney said, "Leaving a loaded gun in a child's backpack that contains the child's games is inviting trouble. The father may as well have left it in the child's toy chest. The results, as we have seen, are deadly."
Ohh shoot.
