From 2013 to 2017, at least three dozen children in Kentucky accidentally shot themselves or another child with a gun that adults gave them or placed within grasp, the Herald-Ledger reported in July 2017.
In most of those cases, police quietly closed their probes into the shootings without bringing criminal charges.
