One mom is behind bars after the unthinkable happened as her son shot himself in his own arm

This is incredibly sad, and shows us the real danger with unsecured firearms. That danger is something that obviously all of us know exists and we recognize, but I believe some folks out there fall under the disbelief that it would never happen to them.

A St. Parks woman, 22-year-old Chelsey Paige Wiltz, was arrested after her two-year-old son shot himself in the arm with an unsecured gun. Luckily for all involved, the little guy was treated for his injuries, and was released from the hospital the next day.

Authorities say Wiltz was charged with illegal use of weapons, illegal possession of narcotics, and obstruction of justice. The obstruction came after local authorities say she lied while giving information the first time.
