Some people are just not meant to be parents. This Albuquerque father is probably one of the best examples.

John Ruiz decided to leave his 11-year-old daughter back at their apartment, while he went out to get a head tattoo. Don't worry, he didn't leave his daughter unprotected. He left her with a loaded gun to protect herself.

The daughter decided to head out to the apartment complex pool, with the gun strapped to her side. Neighbors called the police, and they ended up charging Ruiz with "endangering a child's life or health."

The daughter is still in the father's custody.
