  1. "An Arizona gun range instructor was accidentally shot dead by a 9-year-old girl he was showing how to fire an automatic Uzi, police said.

    The little girl’s parents were using cell phones to film the tutorial when tragedy struck around 10 a.m. Monday, Sam Scarmardo, the manager at the Arizona Last Stop gun range, told the Daily News.

    Charles Vacca, 39, was shot in the head when the Uzi recoiled in the girl’s hands, sending 'the weapon over her head,' the Mohave County Sheriff’s Officer said. The Lake Havasu City resident died at a Las Vegas hospital around 9 p.m. Monday."


    Seems like things once again got a little out of hand with the guns issue in the USA, any thoughts on the matter and current state of gun control in general?
  2. Sure, don't let little kids handle weapons they cannot control. His hands should have been on her arms helping to keep control.

    This is a one in a million deal, and there is a reason you only see these in the news as opposed to the kids who have saved lives defending their homes and possibly their lives from intruders. I could see maybe Uzi's being a 15+ or certain lb need, as well as any weapons of that nature. It's a shame it happened.
  3. I'm not against guns to the people with a certain control. I mean, it's the government's job to protect citzens, giving them guns is just irresponsible IMO, there is actually a trade on deaths once guns become legal, domestic violence reaches an all time high, while street violence and crimes have a slight decrease, a decrease that could be managed with enough police force and government investment. So yeah, I believe petty criminals can be averted with proper security management, while a crazed husband with a gun(or son, or whatever) can't.

  4. Giving them guns? I completely disagree with what you posted, but you can believe what you want.
  5. What do you mean? I just said that I think making guns so accesible is hurtful to society. And now i'm confused by your anwser, what do you believe?
  6. Yeah showing a 9 year old how to fire a FULLY AUTOMATIC UZI is the problem here.. There's no problem with gun control, as you saw in the video she fired a single shot just fine..
  7. This isn't a gun control issue. This is a stupid issue. Why is a 9 year old is given a UZI in the first place?

  8. I agree with those above.. this has nothing to do with gun control and everything to do with stupidity.

    A typical day in the United States.
    Just a simple question, Why should a 9-year old to learn to use an UZI for?

    The sad thing is she will have to live with that for the remainder of her life.
