A Florida woman was shot in the back by her 4-year-old son who was in the backseat of her pickup truck in Putnam County. The bullet went through her back and out the front of her torso, according to Jacksonville.com.
Less than a day earlier, a Facebook post, which appears to be that of the victim, talked of letting a 4-year-old boy shoot targets.
Great plan, Mom.
Jamie Gilt, 31, told a deputy after he spotted her driving erratically that her 4-year-old son accidentally shot her while he was sitting in the back seat.
The child was not harmed during the incident. Well, at least not physically.
“She was shot through the seat and the round went through her back,” Capt. Joseph Wells said.
“There was a booster seat in the back of the vehicle, but however the boy was not strapped in when the deputy got to them,” Wells said.
A public Facebook account for a woman named Jamie Gilt who lives in Jacksonville and is from Palatka features various pictures of horses and pro-gun messages. Another Facebook page is called “Jamie Gilt for Gun Sense.”
We looked at the Facebook page and it’s full of crazy. One meme reads, “The more I learn about my government, the more I love my guns!”
Here’s another meme she has posted. Spot the irony.
“Thanks. All of ours know how to shoot too. Even my 4-year-old gets jacked up to target shoot the .22,” Gilt wrote in response to a comment on Facebook.
Geezus, this woman is crazy.
Wait for it.
Under another post, she wrote:
Some do have guns. I think they all should if they can legally possess one. Luckily for some of them, sometimes there are concealed carriers around when this happens and they are able to save their lives. I can promise though, if someone breaks into my house, or tries to harm me or my family pretty much anywhere, they will be shot and most likely killed. It’s my right to protect my life. Not sit around and wait for someone to come pack up my body or take me to the hospital after I’ve been beaten and raped.
Well, she did get to the hospital after all, didn’t she?
It looks like she was shot with a clean gun at least. Whew!
Wells said the gun found in the pickup truck after Tuesday’s shooting was a .45-caliber handgun.
Gilt was taken to a hospital where she is listed in stable condition and the boy is in the custody of family members, police said.
Wells said the Department of Children and Families has been contacted but the shooting is being investigated as accidental.
“We’re satisfied that this is not a criminal shooting,” Wells said.
Welp, that lets the 4-year-old off the hook and the dumb gun owner, too.
He said no charges have been filed yet but authorities will work with the State Attorney’s Office to determine if Gilt will be charged depending on how the investigation pans out as to how the boy obtained the weapon.
Gilt is a Ted Cruz supporter. A pastor who prayed with Cruz on Saturday, was shot in the back on Sunday.
Damn. Well we hope both anti-gun sense victims feel better soon. We feel really bad for the kid. The mother, not so much. Meh. Sorry, not sorry.
