    Re: 9 year old girl kills instructor accidentally with UZI

    This is just crazy. When I was a kid in the Boy Scouts, our troop had an NRA training class, and it was hours before we even got our hands on a rifle. What in the hell was this instructor thinking?

    The instructor was well within his rights to say NO, not gonna happen. Sure the parents were idiots, but the instructor was supposedly knowledgeable (or else why would he be an instructor), he should have known better, now he's dead.

    He wasn't. Oh lets let a 9 yo girl shoot an Uzi, it'll be fun seeing her reaction and her dad can catch it on tape, hehe. I feel sick thinking about what that girl is going through now.

    I do like the MP-5

    I'm sure there's someone who's interested in criticizing the dead man's actions. That person isn't me.

    Handing an uzi to a 9-year old with no shooting experience is like handing a Learjet to a 9-year old with no flying experience.

    Why are guns the one topic that we're not allowed to discuss after a bad event? When the levees broke in New Orleans, nobody said "NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT FLOOD PROTECTION." After 9/11, not one person said "NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT AIRPORT SECURITY."

    This is exactly the time you talk about guns. A bad thing happened. What can we do to reduce the risk of a similar incident? That's how rational, intelligent beings operate. They observe their surroundings, they observe events, and they alter their behavior going forward based on that. Even a freaking rat can learn from its experiences. Maybe talking about this is what makes some other gun range instructor think "You know, I've been letting little kids handle powerful weapons... maybe I should consider NOT DOING THAT."

    When somebody does something stupid that results in tragedy, I feel comfortable criticizing that action.

    If the guy had driven his car into a lake because the ice was too thin and killed his own kid as a result, I bet you'd criticize his actions. But he used a gun and killed himself, so it's off limits to talk about?

    That's nice. Then you discuss with the poster who quoted me. I have no interest in discussing it with you, either.

    We're talking about responsibility not criticism. He was irresponsible in his actions, actions that ended in tragedy. The parents were idiots for wanting their 9 yo shoot an Uzi as an instructor it was his responsibility to refuse to comply with their idiotic wishes and inform them why they were idiotic. Do I feel bad that the guy is dead, sure.
