Jamie Gilt, the Florida gun activist who was accidentally shot by her 4-year-old, is facing misdemeanor charges. The Putnam County Sheriff's office filed an affidavit with local prosecutors asking to charge Gilt with a second-degree misdemeanor for allowing a minor access to a firearm. The charge, which has yet to be decided on by prosecutors, carries a penalty of up to 180 days in jail. Officials in the State Attorney's Office have stated that the case is under review and according to the sheriff's office, Child welfare authorities are also investigating the incident.
