New research shows that toddlers have shot at least 23 people in 2016 - and the numbers are growing much more that last year.

In April alone a two-year-old in Indiana died after shooting himself in the chest,
a three-year old shot himself in the head in Louisiana and a two-year-old killed his mother in Wisconsin. There were also three other incidents that month in Michigan, Georgia and Missouri.
