Forty three year old Rodney Kinder was arraigned Friday.
He's charged with unlawful delivery of a firearm.
Kinder plead not guilty to both counts.
Prosecutors say Kinder gave his 14 year old son a 22 caliber Ruger handgun for Christmas last year.
By law, the boy is not old enough to possess the weapon, and does not have a FOID card.
Kinder is back in court November 30th for a status hearing.
