    As a responsible gun-owner, this sort of thing ticks me off. She'll survive, but I feel bad for the kid. Somehow, I doubt she'll be posting much more here: https://www.facebook.com/Jamie-Gilt-for-Gun-Sense-1744733205746202/

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/florida-mom-shot-in-back-by-4-year-old-son-police-say/

    PALATKA, Fla. -- A north Florida woman told deputies her 4-year-old son shot her in the back while he was sitting in the back seat of her pickup truck.

    A Putnam County Sheriff's Office news release says a deputy saw 31-year-old Jamie Gilt of Jacksonville behaving frantically inside the truck Tuesday afternoon and quickly realized she'd been shot.

    The release says the woman told deputies her son accidentally shot her. He wasn't harmed and was reunited with family members. The Department of Children and Families will investigate.

    CBS affiliate WTEV reports that deputies found Gilt with a bullet wound inside her truck with a horse trailer on the back stopped in travel lanes on a highway. She was on her way to pick up a horse, according to deputies.

    Deputies say a .45-caliber handgun was on the truck's floor.

    Gilt was taken to a Gainesville hospital, where she was in stable condition later Tuesday.

    Authorities are investigating.

    A Facebook page adorned with the image of the Putnam County mother holding a gun drew worldwide attention Wednesday, WTEV reports.

    The page, titled "Jamie Gilt for Gun Sense," received numerous comments from around the world after the woman's story of getting shot by her son spread. The Facebook page has now also been filled with many comments about gun control and gun laws.

    If only she has more guns in the truck she could have stopped this.

    Anyone else have an unusually difficult time reading this sentence,

    "CBS affiliate WTEV reports that deputies found Gilt with a bullet wound inside her truck with a horse trailer on the back stopped in travel lanes on a highway. "

    Despite the run-on sentence, grade school test of prepositions, who says "travel lanes"

    At least the horse trailer didn't get hit on the back.

    Was she a gun activist of some kind or did everyone just react post facto to the Facebook picture?

    Death # 10482929 that could be been prevented with gun control. How many deaths were saved by having firearms? I'm trying to keep track.

    That's basically the level this thread is operating on.
