Florida of the Day, part 2: Teen finds free gun, takes it on hoverboard, accidentally shoots cousin

The closest image I could find to “brandishing a gun while on a hoverboard”.

The lesson to be learned from this completely preventable tragedy in the Orlando area is that if you’re playing videogames and suddenly find a gun under your convicted felon dad’s bed, don’t take it and ride around on a hoverboard because you might accidentally and fatally shoot your 13-year-old cousin in the head when you lose your balance and fall off. As an added bonus, you’ll land your dad in the clink again: possession of a firearm by a convicted felon carries a mandatory minimum sentence.

Thankfully, a less tragic version of this story played itself out in St. Petersburg.
