A pair of Balboa High School students are in serious trouble over a selfie posted to Facebook in which the two teens pose for a picture -- in the school bathroom, of course -- with a loaded handgun.

It's not really certain how police determined that the gun was loaded when the two boys took the picture. But that gun and other weapons found at the boy's home -- all of which belonged to an older relative, police said -- have all been confiscated.

Cops determined that they had brought the gun to school for the sole purpose of the lavatory photography opportunity. Following their arrest, the boys have yet to be charged with any crimes. They do face "mandatory expulsion," however. The boys' identities have not been released, and SF Weekly only briefly searched high school kids' Facebook profiles for a peek at the offending picture.
