5 year old New Hampshire boy shoots himself with gun belonging to parent

A 5 year old New Hampshire boy was "playing with a gun" at 2:30 a.m. and shot himself in the lower extremity. From an article:
The couple told officers the child was playing with a handgun, which belongs to Bishop.
The child was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the Elliot Hospital after the shooting was reported at 2:30 a.m. at 420 Spruce St., police said.
Police said the injuries were to the child's lower extremity.
Manchester police seized the .22-caliber handgun and said the incident is under investigation.
And further, the owner of the gun has issued an unusual public statement criticizing people who have made comments about the incident, stating that the incident was an "ACCIDENT".

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