Who the hell lets a 10-year old shoot an UZI?

I have a 13 year old nephew and he is allowed to shoot a .22, but only at targets. And when the shooting starts, you stay back about 10 yards.

Instructor sounds like an idiot and a Darwin award winner.

And the girls parents share the blame as well.

DOLAN SPRINGS — A 9-year-old girl accidentally killed an Arizona shooting instructor as he was showing her how to use an automatic Uzi, authorities said Tuesday.

Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, died Monday shortly after being airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Mohave County sheriff's officials said.

Vacca was standing next to the girl at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills when she pulled the trigger and the recoil sent the gun over her head, investigators said.

Authorities said the girl was at the shooting range with her parents. Her name was not released.

A woman who answered the phone at the shooting range said it had no comment. She did not provide her name.

It is not known if the range had an age limit on shooting or if the girl was going through a safety class.

Ronald Scott, a Phoenix-based firearms safety expert, said most shooting ranges have an age limit and strict safety rules when teaching children to shoot. He said instructors usually have their hands on guns when children are firing high-powered weapons.

"You can't give a 9-year-old an Uzi and expect her to control it," Scott said.

actually,the UZI is a Submachine-Gun!
If it were an Israeli Assaultrifle,it most likely would be a Galil!
Bit of a difference there!

The sad part about this is that little girl is going to have to live with this the rest of her life.

The instructor didn't die from a slingshot.

It's not the parents fault. They didn't provide the range, the gun, or the instruction. This is clearly the range owners fault, and I expect that they will pay dearly for this.

The parents wanted their child to learn to shot with proper instruction. A single shot .22 rifle is the tool of instruction for a 9 year old. These idiots had the wrong equiptment and no training on begining a youth shooter into the proper ways to conduct yourself at a shooting range. To me they are clearly at fault, not the parents.

BTW an UZI is not an assult rifle. It's far to short to be a rifle. It's a submachine gun, much harder to shoot and control for a young person....

Regards, Kirk
Kirk, I'm not sure. The parents took the girl to the range. I can't imagine the parents taking the girl to learn to shoot, then leaving her without at least understanding what she was about to do. I can't imagine any range Marshall, even a bad one, suddenly deciding that it would be a good idea to just turn a beginner child loose with a full auto. I can't imagine the parents just dropping off the child and returning later.

I was shooting and hunting long before I was 9. As was my son. I have a photo of my grandson with his first deer, at 6 years old. In all cases, there was strict, very strict, parental supervision.

My best guess? Daddy was one of the 100,000+ legal owners of a full auto. Little Suzie bugs dad to let her fire it. Just once. He takes her to a range. Hires a "professional" to supervise. An all around stupid.
