Gun rights advocate accidentally shot in the back by her 4-year-old son
A north Florida woman is in the hospital after her 4-year-old son shot her in the back while sitting in the backseat of her pickup truck.
It is a misdemeanor in Florida to leave a loaded firearm where a child might access it. This genius left a loaded firearm in the back seat. Despite having a car seat the child wasn't strapped in the seat when police arrived.

You know, I wonder if your more likely to be shot by a toddler at this point then to safe a life by carrying a loaded gun.
Jess Nut says
+Thomas Wrobel you are more likely to get shot by a toddler than stop a shooting or home intruder.

From all the comments I was seeing on FB about this, people were trying to cite the not-being-strapped-in-his-seat thing as a bigger issue than a toddler having access to a fucking gun. Because clearly it should be ok for a toddler to handle a gun si long as he's in his seat.
Paul Spoerry says
I'd like to know why letting a toddler have access to a loaded gun is only a misdemeanor. For all we hear from gun advocates about how firearms are safe if handled properly then HOW is letting a toddler have one only a misdemeanor?!?!?

Natural selection at work.
