The timing could not have been better… for the overall well being of the child.

According to the police report, the toddler wanted to bring out his toys while officers and an investigator from the Florida Department of Children and Families were in his home and that’s when he produced a black 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
A officer immediately took the gun from the child and found a bullet was in the chamber with the safety off, the newspaper reported.
Faniel, 34, claimed the gun wasn’t hers and she didn’t know it was in the apartment, the police report said.
But that wasn’t all that was discovered… more from The Post:
While searching the home, the officers also found a yellow box of 9mm ammunition on top of the refrigerator, next to a black scale and a pink makeup bag filled with six plastic bags of white and pink powder, the report said. The powder tested positive for oxycodone and weighed 0.6 grams in total.
Faniel was arrested on a charge of child neglect and was also charged with failure to appear in court and violating release conditions.
