Default Ariz. girl accidentally shoots, kills shooting instructor

Two questions. What kind of a pair of retards take a 9 year old to shoot an uzi. Second question is what kind of a retarded instructor would put a loaded assault rifle in a little girls hands? Friggin idiots

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.

As a certified NRA range officer, and a certified rifle coach for 4H kids, this is NOT a certified range, nor is equipted with certified instructors. Bunch of idiots who would hand any fully automatic anything into the hands of a 9 year old.... And then she killed him. Duh...

Double bad, she, at 9 years of age, is now scared for life and the so called instructor is dead. I thought shooting was supposed to be fun, not leathal. But when idiots are the instructors, well you get this.....

Be carefull around anyone who says they are a "Pro". Ask to see their NRA certificate first....

Anybody who calls himself a "pro" anything has about as much credibility as a parent who claims his 10 year old kid got a tenth degree black belt in Karate in only one year.

I see Arizona is weeding out the low IQ's. Good for them!

Seriously the parents should be in jail. This was beyond stupidity.

Geez. I was guessing it was a hoax until I saw the Youtube channel was for Fox News Phoenix.
Googling the additional details there shows multiple articles.

Sad.

I resectfully disagree... But I kinda like the comment about weeding out the low IQ's though!

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....

Having spent time in Havasu, I know of an indoor range that rents you a full auto and sells you the ammo to shoot it. On their indoor range. I am assuming that is what this was or similar situation. Not many folks out side of a gunshop/range would own an UZI. Last I knew an UZI was $15K or more..

I suppose it could have been her fathers, but this is unlikely. I don't think a knowledgable Dad would let a 9 year old shoot one...

The mother and father took her to the range. I don't think it's far fetched that it was their gun.
