He was released after producing an honorary Florida gun permit, and appointed to the school board by Governor De Santis.

Hire the boy as security for their local Ohio hometown

Before being fired on the spot, a Walmart spokesperson issued this initial statement,

"Yes, the boy did have a minor injury when the gun’s magazine hit him in the forehead, so what he'll get over it."

In his defense, he's too young to know the difference between Walmart & Waffle-house.

My friend went into a Walmart and shot off is mouth. He was allowed to leave under his own recognizance.

You always find high caliber people at Wal-Mart...

"Don't take your guns to Walmart, son."

Apologies to Johnny Cash

How was the mother arrested for endangering a child? The kid was the safest person there; he had a gun to protect himself with!

She should have been arrested for a child labor violation. Nobody should be forced to start a career at age 2.

Was Mr. Burns shot ?

@Rod - agree.
"No one was hit by the gunshot, but the boy’s mother was arrested on a charge of endangering children. The boy was turned over to a guardian." The article said she waited for police to arrive after the shot was fired.
Are we to believe that a 2 year-old knew how to take the safety off or did the mother have a loaded, unsecured gun in her purse when she went shopping?

Kid got some street cred.
