An incident that has become all too commonplace.

A 3-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in south Kansas City and died from his injuries Friday afternoon, police said in a news release.
Police said they were called to a home in the 11300 block of Calico Drive after 12:30 p.m. in regard to the shooting.
While responding to the call, police learned the child had a gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital by his mother.
The boy was pronounced dead at the hospital. His identity has not been released.
No matter how many times this happens, no matter how many innocent lives are lost, people are still incapable of understanding that bringing guns into the home puts everybody at risk.
