Default Tragedy at gun range in Nevada

Why would ANYONE put a full auto in the hands of a petite nine year old girl? I have shot a full auto Tommy gun and I couldn't handle it blasting away. Three shot blasts was all I could handle. This is INSANE and will not bode well for us gun owners. And it's not that it was a dreaded Uzi but that it was a full auto. I shot a Uzi that was not full auto and it was a sweet rifle.

And I see it was an Uzi pistol. Not even a rifle she could brace against a shoulder or hold at her hip. SHEESH!! Are people CRAZY?? That instructor was very wrong to put a gun like that in a child's hands.

Idiot parents -
Idiot instructor -
Tragic for the girl, who must live with this.

Prayers for her and her family, and for the family of the instructor as well.

That video stops just a shot or two short of the fatal round that hit that instructor in the head.

I hope they all had a wonderful vacation. And that girl will have an interesting essay "What I did on my summer vacation".

During a Lesson?????

What lesson could he be teaching a 9 year old with a full auto?????

That is like "Here hold my beer and watch this" type of moments.

I feel sorry for the little girl. She's going to have to live with this tragedy for the rest of her life. I hope she can understand it wasn't her fault.

it was horrible. i too was thinking the same thing. one bad choice effected a lot of people. im all for training kids, having them shoot. but come on shes never shot before and was shootin ga small hard to control full auto. the blame for this tragic event lays 100% on the instructor, and business. the instructor already paid the price for his mistake.

Default I guess we all thought the same thing

When I first read this my very first thought was "WTF was this guy doing showing a 9 year old girl how to shoot a full auto UZI ?" Serious ?

Very tragic...
