"Bubba" Ludwig can't walk, talk or open the refrigerator door -- but he does have his very own Illinois gun permit.
The 10-month-old, whose given name is Howard David Ludwig, was issued a firearm owner's identification card after his father, Howard Ludwig, paid the $5 fee and filled out the application, not expecting to actually get one.
The card lists the baby's height (2 feet, 3 inches), weight (20 pounds) and has a scribble where the signature should be.
Apparently the kid got a 12 guage shotgun from his grandfather as a gift, so the dad applied for the firearms permit. the story says that Grandpa will hold on to the 12 gauge until "Bubba" is 14
