Gun Activist Shot By 4-Year-Old Son
A Florida gun activist, so hype about firearms that she taught her toddler son how to handle a .22, was unsurprisingly shot by her four-year-old while riding in a car on the way to a family member’s house on Tuesday. Apparently she taught him what he was doing just a little too well…
A high-profile pro-gun activist was shot in the back by her four-year-old son after he found her pistol lying on the back seat of her truck just 24 hours after he boasted about his shooting skills online.
Jamie Gilt, 31, who posts about firearms on her social media accounts was driving through Putnam County, Jacksonville, Florida, on Tuesday in her truck when she was wounded after the toddler picked up the weapon and shot her in the back.
It came just a day after she said the youngster would get ‘jacked up’ before a shooting practice on a page dedicated to her musings on Second Amendment rights. On the profile Jamie Gilt for Gun Sense she wrote: ‘Even my 4 year old gets jacked up to target shoot with the .22’.
Gilt and her son had been travelling to pick up a horse from a relative when the accident happened.
Her four-year-old son picked up a loaded .45 semi-automatic handgun from the back seat, pointed it towards his mother and pulled the trigger.
The powerful round went through the front seat and passed through Gilt’s body.
Gilt flagged down a passing Sheriff’s deputy and told him that she had been shot.
Well, she said he “got all jacked” to shoot the gun. Maybe she shouldn’t have left one around him until he also understood what death is and that guns can cause it. SMH.
