Indiana 3 year old finds parents gun and shoots and kills himself

Another toddler is dead from a gunshot injury that occurred when he found his parents' gun on a counter and shot and killed himself. From an article:
Police responded to the scene after 6 p.m. where they found the boy inside the home suffering from a gun shot wound to the head. The child was then rushed to Riley Hospital for Children in critical condition and later died of his injuries.
Investigators have indicated that they believe the child accidentally shot himself in the head after he pulled the gun off a kitchen counter.
A neighbor to the family said "I've known they had guns; they've carried them in public on their side, they've got permits for them and I just thought they always were a little bit more responsible than that,"
The child lived in Indiana.

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