Armed and dangerous and three years old

During a traffic stop in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune says cops noticed a three year old girl clutching something you might not expect.
After ordering a passenger to step out of a car, an officer noticed the girl in the back seat holding a 9mm handgun, police said. As the officer tried to take the gun away, the girl threw it on the floor but the gun did not discharge, police said.
According the report, the car's 19-year-old driver is now facing several firearms charges.

The paper twice mentions that though the gun was thrown down, it didn't discharge. You almost get the impression the reporter seems confounded that the gun didn't go off even though no one pulled the trigger.
