Out of The Mouths... Er, Pants of Babes

Victorville, CA

When you have kids, so I'm told, you really have to watch what you're leaving around. Don't want them finding things they ought not to know about.  Never know what they'll do with it.  Maybe eat the rat poison under the kitchen sink, show mommy your hidden Barnyard Fun porn stash, take that .45 you keep in your car with him to school.

A 6-year-old boy was found to be carrying a gun at his school in Victorville.  Seems the tyke's pants were sagging and when somebody was helping cinch up his belt they found a loaded .45.

Sorry, a loaded .45 that had been stolen in a November robbery.

So his dad, Michael Lewis, has been arrested and is being investigation for receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm by a felon.  Felon, too?  Sounds like a winner.

The first pistol I fired was a Browning 9mm my dad got off a guy in Nevada for twenty bucks and a 6-pack of Coors.  I was, what, eight at the time?  Nine?  That thing was goddamn heavy and I wasn't too keen on the idea of holding it much less carrying it around.  And now this kid, three years younger than I was, is packing a loaded .45 in his shorts?

Damn.  I hadn't realized I was such a pussy.

This blog is so depressing. But, I keep coming back anyway. Heck, I have it bookmarked.

A Hi-Power for $20? Sounds like your father got a deal.

Depressing would be if the kid had blown his leg off. Unles he were older. Then it'd just be funny.

Yeah, he definitely got a deal on that gun. Some people just really like Coors, I guess.

This guy would qualify for Father of the Year but that spot, no doubt, goes to the dad who let his son fire the full-auto Uzi and killed himself.

$20 and Coors for a Hi-Power? That is a deal. I would have tossed that Coors in the nearest dumpster, anyway.

Jesus, what piss.
