GAINESVILLE, Fla. (CBSLA.com) — A Florida mom who runs a pro-gun Facebook page was shot by her 4-year-old son Tuesday.
Jamie Gilt, 31, told deputies that she was on her way to pick up a horse when her son accidentally shot her.
The boy was not harmed in the incident.
Her Facebook page — “Jamie Gilt For Gun Sense” — works to protect and expand the 2nd Amendment.
Gilt said she was driving in her pickup with her son in the backseat when he got his hands on the weapon — a .45 caliber handgun — and accidentally shot her in the back.
On Monday, Gilt had boasted about her son’s ability to use a firearm. “My son gets jacked up to target shoot,” she wrote.
She was taken to a hospital in Gainesville where she is reportedly in stable condition.
