Actually, Minecraft is fairly easy to mod. Just because it has no guns by default, doesn't mean the kid didn't download something that added them. Also, he could've been playing Guncraft, which is like Minecraft, but with guns and FPS-style gameplay (just when you thought it couldn't get any dumber...). Really, all that stupid kid needs is a good, solid ban on his computer. The only think his father did wrong was to store the gun improperly, but since the firing pin was out, I don't think it warrants that much punishment. Actually, all this fuss could make him lock that pistol in some high place, so the little brat won't take it again.
