Arkansas 3 year old finds gun and shoots himself

There's been another accidental gun discharge, killing a 3 year old in Arkansas. From an article:
This morning a family is grieving the loss of a three-year-old little boy who accidentally shot and killed himself.
It happened Sunday afternoon on Kerr Station Road in Lonoke County.
Detectives say the boy was at a neighbor's house, when he followed a man into the bedroom.
As the man took out his contact lenses, investigators say the toddler grabbed a loaded gun off the nightstand and pulled the trigger.
Lt. Jim Kulsea said, "Any gun, doesn't matter if it has a safety or not, make sure it's not anywhere where a child can reach it or get to it."
Lonoke County Sheriff's detectives believe this was an accident but they're still investigating it.
After they're finished, the case will be turned over to the district attorney who will decide if any charges should be filed.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
