There are certain things you should never do in life. Like changing a light bulb barefooted while you wait to dry after showering. Or feed raw meat to crocodiles with your bare hands. Or give a shotgun to your four-year-old boy.
That's not exactly what the father of this four-year-old boy from Kitsap County did. But it was close enough: According to the police, the father gave him a shotgun cartridge to play. Then the kid somehow managed to grab the semi-automatic weapon, loaded it, and fired it against his 23-year-old mum.
According to Seattle Weekly, the mum didn't hear the kid loading the shotgun. Fortunately, the injury was not fatal, unlike the chunk of idiocy that is the brain of the two imbeciles involved in this case. [Seattle Weekly]
