Gun found in preschooler's backpack.
The money quote:
"The mother was contacted and told detectives she didn't know the gun was in her vehicle."
Say what, now?
I'm really not sure which option is worse:
1) The woman is lying to cover for someone. (Herself, her boyfriend...)
2) The woman legitimately did not know that there was a gun in her car.
How the hell can you not know there's a gun in your floorboard? I mean, damn, I know we need to clean out the truck bad, but it's not like we wouldn't notice a freaking pistol.
And how the hell do you not notice your kid picking up a gun and putting it in his backpack?
