I will never understand the mentality of some parents.

http://www.sfgate.com/news/us/article/Gi...-hc-nationworld

So someone thought it would be a good idea to take their nine year old girl out try shooting an automatic weapon. Disaster strikes.

What are some people thinking? I understand wanting to teach shooting sports to someone young, maybe very closely supervised with a long rifle or something. A select fire weapon handed to a child without the motor control or executive command to withstand muzzle rise at automatic rates of fire is criminally negligent.

Sad stuff.

Ruin a 9 year old for life with parents stupidity and sadly the gun instructor idiocy.

Wait what about the right to bear arms???? Forefathers were thinking of this kind of stuff when they drew up the constitution. Btw I see no issue with owning guns etc personally. Just naive parents and what really happens with firearms/children.

uh common sense appears to be uncommon nowadays.

I was shooting pellet at age 7 and .22LR at 10

.22lr/mag pistols at 12, larger caliber rifles and muzzle loaders followed.

never any problems.

Who the heck teaches full-auto uzi to a 9 year old .... ugh.

now watch all the anti-gun people try to make this more than it is.

I feel bad for the girl.. but the guy who died is almost Darwinism...

People never learn...this has happened before with a kid and full auto short barreled gun and just recently too. The instructor should have been up to date on that accident.

+1 Rand.

I am not anti-gun for sure, but like anything in life step by step understanding and learning coinciding with small increases in responsibility and understanding of actions fosters greater responsibility.

This should have never happened. A 9 year old while competent with many things, lacks the fine motor skills and understanding of the consequences of handling a deadly firearm. It is simply not needed, a full auto even more so.

Its like handing the keys to a Viper to a 9 year old who can barely keep it together on a pedal bike. duh

Anybody who feels the need to teach a nine year old how to shoot an Uzi is a complete idiot!

I understand people wanting to teach hand gum safety and how to shoot but, an automatice Uzy is just nuts.

Reminiscent of Adam Lanza's mother thinking that guns would be a good outlet for her troubled son. Also reminiscent of that big talking phony, Chris Kyle, who thought that taking someone with PTSD out to a range was a good idea.

Parents should be held responsible and I bet will at a minimum face civil suit by the killed persons family.

I blame the instructor too. I have a instructor instrument airplane (CFII) and multi-engine instructor. If you can't safely do the job...do you still do it

The instructor needs prior incidents to educate him that recoil of an automatic weapon in the hands of a nine year old is dangerous? Then he shouldn't be an instructor. Nor a gun owner.

More and more people are incapable of predicting outcomes and oblivious to consequences because they are obsessed about their freedoms.
