A whole bunch of people I know are probably going straight to hell for laughing at this story, but it is just too ironic.
Jamie Gilt is a gun activist on social media. Her Facebook page is full of pro-gun messages. Earlier this week Gilt had an online discussion where she claimed that having a gun was the best defense against burglars because criminals might change their plans if they knew they were going to get killed. She even bragged about how her children all like guns, saying “All of ours know how to shoot too. Even my 4-year-old gets jacked up to target shoot the .22.”
The very next day, she found out just how much her 4-year-old likes to shoot. While she was driving and her young son was in the back seat, he somehow managed to get his hands on a loose .45 caliber handgun and shoot her, with the bullet going through the seat and through her torso. Luckily, she is expected to survive.
It is against the law to leave a gun unsecured so that children can get access to it.
