Toddlers are somehow getting their hands on firearms, and the results are fatal.

Last year, toddlers (children one, two, or three years of age) were shooting people, either themselves or others, at a rate of about one per week. The Washington Post reports that the pace has since picked up. In the first five months of 2016, there have been at least 23 reported shootings by toddlers, as compared to 18 in the same time period last year.

In 18 of those 23 incidents the children shot themselves, and in half of those cases they died. Of the remaining five incidents, two of them were fatal. As for all kids under 18 years old, there have so far been 77 cases this year alone in which a child accidentally shot someone.
