Lunchboxes and guns »

Chris Boyette at CNN:

Things a 7-year-old boy expects Mom to put in his backpack: A peanut butter sandwich. Pencils. Maybe even a nice note with a little heart scrawled on it.

Things he doesn’t: a flare gun, a .22-caliber pistol, a loaded magazine and, for good measure, 14 more bullets in a plastic bag.

For crying out loud. This is a level of parental ignorance I can confidently say I’ll never reach. Good lord.
