3-year old Texas boy gets unsecured, loaded gun and shoots grandfather in back

A 3-year old boy in Laredo, Texas, was able to get hold of a loaded, unsecured handgun and shot his grandfather in the lower back.  Luckily, the wound was non-life-threatening.

From an article:

Laredo fire Capt. Eloy Vega tells the Laredo Morning Times (http://bit.ly/OKxhsW) that the 47-year-old man was in stable condition at Laredo Medical Center after the 2:40 p.m. Tuesday shooting at the man's home. Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza (bah-AY'-zah) says described the injury as a non-life-threatening flesh wound. 
Baeza says the child apparently found a small-caliber handgun under a pillow or a mattress. He said suspicion turned toward the child after he complained of wrist pain and having scorch marks on his hands.

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