    That happened a long time ago, but if I remember correctly it was a micro uzi and the kid was about 8 years old. I'm all for allowing kids to shoot and I think it's a great idea to introduce them to FA's to eliminate the curiousity, but there are some guns kids have no business shooting. A fully automatic weapon especially one like the micro uzi who has a reputation of being hard to hold onto should have never been in the hands of a child.

    when i teach new people to guns to shoot they get a mag with exactly one round so that doesnt happen. the first round will go generally down range its panic follow up shots from fear, surprise, shock etc that get folks killed.

    never know how someone is going to react. the dad shoulda been punished for criminal stupidity. dunno whatever happened to him tho.

    I saw it a couple of days ago.

    In the wake of the Tuscon tragedy, expect the hoplophobes to pull out all the stops. They will use anything they can find, from when Cain slew Abel to today.

    Anti-gun is anti-gun and never should common sense or the facts intrude.

    I think a decision was reached in the case, hence it's return to the spotlight.
