5-year old boy plays with grandfather's gun and shoots self in arm

A 5-year old boy was in his grandfather's UPS store in Winter Garden, Florida, when he found his grandfather's loaded 9mm pistol on a counter.

The boy pulled the trigger and shot himself in the arm.  His father rushed him to the hospital.

Luckily, the injury isn't life-threatening, and none of the customers in the store at the time were injured.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
