2 year old Tennessee toddler shoots self in finger

A two year old in Tennessee has shot his own finger with a gun he found in his home. From an article:
You protect them from everything, electrical sockets, stairs, and yes guns.  It’s the last one that has sent police and paramedics rushing to a south Memphis home Monday night. 
  A two-year old boy found a gun somewhere inside a house and before it was over pulled the trigger. The family didn’t shed much light on the shooting. 
It all happened behind closed doors, police say the boys’ parents were home, other family members and children were also there.
Somehow the two-year old found and fired the gun, hitting his finger and scaring everyone out here. 
Neighbors say the family just moved in to the area and they’ve seen the boy playing outside, and are so saddened to hear he was hurt.
They hope the parents take steps to make sure it never happens again.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
