A 9 year old fatally shoots the instructor in the head. Oopsies~

I hope at least the burgers were good at "Bullets and Burgers" tourist trap.

At least this gun nut won't be training any more children to shoot machines guns any more.


Yes, the U.S. is insane with its love of guns.
On average about 35 people are killed each day with handguns in the U.S.

Just one more bit of insanity contained in our outdated constitution...
the write to bear arms so we can kill anyone we want with just a pull of the trigger.
So easy even a 9 year old can do it after she finishes a burger at a road side attraction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
A 9-year-old girl learning to fire a submachine gun accidentally killed her instructor at a shooting range when the
weapon recoiled over her shoulder, according to Arizona authorities.

The instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, died at a hospital Monday night after he was shot in the head.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said the girl was with her parents. The three reside in New Jersey.

The website of Bullets and Burgers, the shooting range where the accident happened, says children between the
ages of 8 and 17 can shoot a weapon if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Police said the weapon was an Uzi, an Israeli-made submachine gun that some experts say is the wrong choice of
firepower for instructing a child.

No charges to be filed.
The investigation into the shooting has been completed and no charges were pending, authorities said.

Asked about the culpability of the girl's parents, he said: "We have considered the parents, but if anyone was culpable
it would be the instructor for putting a deadly weapon in her hands."

Authorities said the death was being handled as an industrial accident, with state occupational safety and health
officials investigating. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also was notified.

An autopsy on Vacca was completed but the cause and manner of death were pending, according to Colleen Pitre,
a representative of the medical examiner's officer. She would not say how many times Vacca was shot.

Why is a 9-year-old firing an Uzi?

Danas questioned why the instructor in Arizona was standing immediately to the left of the Uzi, which would have
recoiled in that direction.

"It's an awful shame," he said. "He shouldn't have been to the left side of the gun... But that child should not have
been shooting anything other than a single-shot firearm."

Danas, whose daughters are 11 and 13, said his girls learned to shoot when they were 4 years old, with a
single-shot, .22-caliber pistol.

Greg Block, who runs California-based Self-Defense Firearms Training, said not only was the Uzi the wrong gun to
use -- "That's not a kid's gun" -- but that instructors should stand to the rear and to the right of the shooter.

But he said some submachine guns can be used to train children.

"It can be done under the right circumstances," Howard said. "There are some machine guns that I could have
trained my 8-year-old on."

In the video, Vacca and the girl are at an outdoor range. The wind blows a target in the distance. Vacca shows the
child how to hold the gun and then helps her establish her grip and her stance. She fires one round and dirt flies
above the target. Vacca adjusts the Uzi, places his right hand on her back and his left under her right arm.

She fires several rounds in rapid succession and the gun kicks to the left as she loses control. Experts said an Uzi
can fire five rounds one third of a second. The video ends before the fatal head shot. In releasing the video,
authorities did not identify who made it.

Kids and guns: What's your parenting style?

Bullets and Burgers is part of a tourism niche offering packages costing up to $1,000 to shoot different high-powered
weapons. The range offers bachelorette parties, birthdays and weddings events. It is one of at least a dozen gun ranges
in the Las Vegas area catering to tourists from around the world.

Some mistakes we make only once...... the instructor was clearly at fault, an Uzi is not a child's toy.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Frustration with no opportunities and being toiling wage slaves will make people turn to deadly toys for some relief.
It gives them a sense of power and control. When frustrations boil over we have gun murders. 35-40 a day on average.
