Sad that the dude is dead, even more so for the 9 year old little girl who has to live with it, but you do not give a fully automatic weapon to a fucking 9 year old! Or, honestly any gun at all, really. They're not tools for children to play with. Dude was a dumbass. I'm just thankful that the child wasn't hurt.

I can understand teaching children, of any age, proper gun use, safety, maintenance, and care; but you don't do that with an automatic weapon. Its like teaching someone to ride a bike, you don't start with a motorcycle.

That said, I'm with 'field and shall now walk away before those 'rights' start getting defended.

Honestly I feel sorry for the kid, she is the one with the front row seat to a head shot. Fuck the family for going to a 'tourist' spot and placing her in that position though.

I find it alarming that the report says its common in parts of the US for young children to learn to shoot, now I get that in some rural places kids are taught to hunt or to protect live stock, or maybe sports shooting( I used to target shoot with air guns as a kid) but this is hugely irresponsible, the range says they havent had an incident in 12 years, well by fuck they have now, but more to the point who thought this was a good idea in the first place??? I know the debate always comes down to "why should the responsible gun owners be penalised?" But this happened at a gun club with the support of her parents, clearly what constitutes "responsible "needs to be questioned too.

Tbh I think it would be a bit of fun for a kid to be able to fire a fully automatic weapon. Not be taught anything about it, just able to pull the trigger and hear the noise and get the feel.

However the automatic weapon should be bolted onto an immovable wall that cannot pivot or move in any way, and be permanently locked facing downrange, hitting a target that is safely fenced off so no-one can go near it. So basically the kid gets to pull the trigger and nothing else.

Allowing 8 year olds to freely handle and aim fully automatic weapons (or anything higher powered than an air rifle, really) is self evidently moronic, to my mind.

Shooting a BB gun is one thing. Learning to hunt or protect lifestock is one thing. Most hunting rifles are single-shot, bolt-action rifles.

A fucking Uzi? Not just a fucking Uzi but a fucking Uzi on full auto? Are you freaking kidding me?

With rifles and/or shotguns. Not with automatic firearms. I was taught back in elementary how to safely handle and operate a shotgun, because I constantly went on dove hunts with my dad. Never have I fired a fully automatic firearm though.

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..
