    A gun-loving Florida mom was accidentally shot in the back by her 4-year-old son with a .45-caliber pistol he found on the floor of her pickup truck, police said Wednesday.

    Jamie Gilt, 31, was driving to a relative's home on Tuesday afternoon to pick up a horse when the boy, who was sitting in the seat behind hers, pulled the trigger, the Putnam County Sheriff's Department said in a news release.

    I'm glad she is okay. I've heard news reports saying that the child was not in a car seat, nor was the loaded gun in here control while she was in the car with her child.

    Makes me wonder if she was so "gun"-ho that she didn't even adhere to gun basics for a loaded weapon?

    What's the purpose of having a loaded weapon if it's not in your control? Praise God the child didn't shoot himself fatally or someone else.

    This is the sort of thing that leaves the anti-gun crowd salivating. Makes me wonder how many times loaded weapons will be out or in the control of drunk students on college campuses as more start to allow students to carry?
