A fucking Uzi? Not just a fucking Uzi but a fucking Uzi on full auto? Are you freaking kidding me?
Word. I've herd that the standard Israel army house clearing technique includes loading an UZI with a full clip and throwing it inside where it goes off until it spends all rounds.

Giving such a firearm to 9-year old was a Darwin award decision.

I guess I'm supposed to say, "It's her right to shoot the instructor in the head."
LOL.
This is FAIL on so many levels. I've had a weapon in my hands for 25 some years. My son has had one in his for 2 now. I sure wouldn't be doing what they did. I took it slow, working up with age and maturity. So is my son. I still have yet to shoot a type 2 automatic weapon. But I wouldn't let my son do it. Oh well. Let's blame every other gun owner for a stupid parent.
I ain't starting anything with anyone.

I'm all for teaching kids to PROPERLY handle a firearm in a safe, teaching enviroment. My dad taught me first with a BB gun and we progressed from there. At 12yrs old, I went to hunters safety training school. I have taught my own son how to be safe. But there is no way in hell I would hand over a loaded fully auto weapon to a child. That right there is a total iresponsibility on the adults part.

Don't knock it till you try it. It's fun to do in a safe environment.

But this time I'm with everyone else saying that instructor screwed up. When I learned to shoot it was with bolt action, lever action and break barrels, the way the odds of something bad happening was low.

When I first started shooting semi's they had a single round till I proved that I could handle the recoil.

but yeah this wasn't a good idea.

I have problems understanding why people get surprised about these things happening. As long as the gun laws are as they are. Kids will shoot others. Take it as a casultie for the greater good of your right to have a loaded Gun in your dresser or change your laws so they must be unloaded and locked away.

Blame parents and instructor. Kids this young should have no business firing automatic weapons, they should still play with waterguns..
