Two North Dakota boys, ages 13 and 14, caught after stealing gun from car

A mother caught her son with a gun that he and his friend had stolen from an unlocked car, in Bismarck, North Dakota, and turned them in.  The boys are ages 13 and 14.

From an article:
Officer Pat Renz said a Bismarck woman brought a handgun to the police department at 8:21 p.m. Tuesday, saying she found it in her 13-year-old son’s dresser. The boy told officers he and a 14-year-old boy were walking in the area of North 15th Street and East Avenue F and saw the gun in a center console of a vehicle. The car was unlocked, they said, and they took the gun.
The boys contradicted each other about who actually took the gun, with both claiming to be a lookout while the other took it, Renz said.
Renz said the gun had not been reported stolen, and officers have not found its owner. The boys said the theft occurred between July 2 and July 6.
One has to wonder why the gun owner didn't report the gun stolen.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
