Gun Rights Activist Mom Shot By 4-Year-Old Son
A Florida woman outspoken about her right to bear arms has found herself at the center of a most ironic situation.
The boy reportedly pulled the trigger while he was in the backseat as Gilt drove along a highway to pick up a horse. Authorities later spotted her in the middle of the road.
A police spokesman said, "She was shot through the seat and the round went through her back." The son was also not strapped into his booster seat at the time of the shooting.
Gilt is in stable condition, while the boy was sent to stay with other relatives.
The story has drawn attention to the issue of control, with many people posting comments -- since removed -- about what happened.
