Editor's Note: I don't think I'm alone on this one...what the hell was Randsom King, who'd only been hired a few weeks previous, doing at home alone with Rollie (aged 7) looking at Frank's gun? Not impressed. What excuse could Randsom King have for going into Frank's bedroom and accidentally shooting the floor? Something does not add up.
