I didn't even know Uzis were legal, let alone that kids take lessons for them.....

Quote:DOLAN SPRINGS, Ariz. – 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.

An event like this, where a 9 year old boy shot himself in the head with an uzi the same way, is what prompted the Mass gun bans.

Wait? Since when are uzis illegal?

And what does automatic mean? Semi auto? Full auto?

Btw, uzis are fairly cheap right now and mags can be had for 7-8 bucks. It's next on my list.

"Last Stop" eh? Seems aptly named.

Post the full damned video, and make every instructor and RSO watch it as a condition of re-certification (myself included).

We all need a reminder of the consequences of not properly doing our jobs.

Not so much an issue of the girls age, although she may or may not have been mature enough. A short barreled weapon capable of firing multiple successive rounds has the tendency to be a bit overwhelming for someone who does not have the wrist and hand strength, regardless of their age. Point being, I might have let the yungin' pull the trigger, but one or both of my hands would have been on the weapon. The same I would do and have done for anyone who I feel might be overpowered by the recoil.

They're illegal in Mass. If you were replying to me, that's what I meant. Mass as in Massachusetts.

Must have been an automatic, because a semi only shoots one bullet with each trigger pull.

Either way, I would not have let a 9 year old fire an automatic weapon. They can be hard for some adults not familiar, a child lacks the strength.

I feel soooo bad for that little girl, I hope she doesn't carry this around with her the rest of her life, but I suspect she will. It's truly not her fault, I hope some day she sees that.
