Gun tossed into deep fryer at Vegas restaurant goes off

As many were debating the merits of NBC sports announcer Bob Costas editorializing Sunday about the need for gun control in the U.S. after a tragic murder and subsequent suicide by a professional football player in Kansas City, a gun was tossed in a deep fryer in a Las Vegas restaurant and fired shots.

A Las Vegas police report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal says that one of the restaurant workers told police that a man had asked her to hold his gun for him when police showed up, but she refused.

So he tossed into the deep-fryer.

And it exploded.

The deep-fried gun ended up not hurting anyone.
