9 yo accidentally kills instructor

I don't have a problem with kids shooting machine guns, but I think it's best that they stick to tripod mounted guns. Way too much to go wrong when you have a tiny person shooting a full-auto shoulder-fired gun.

FA + 9 year old = Iffy at best.
Uzi FA + 9 year old = criminally insane.

I shot my first firearm when I was 9 years old. A Ruger Single-Six .22, while my father was close at hand. Again, 9 yrs of age is not the problem, it's the power of the weapon and the strength of the shooter.

We let our 8 yo (9 now) shoot at the range...just a 22. We let our 13 yo (14now) try my 9mm, and he has shot a rifle.

I can't imagine letting my 9 yo try an Uzi, much as he probably thinks he would like to. He also wants a real carry knife....won't let him have anything other than his multi-tools or his mini cheapy pocket knives he got free somewhere.

I saw where the instructors family is going to write a nice letter to the girls family and make sure the girl knows it's not her fault. Nice gesture.

Our 12 year old grandson has shot darn near everything I own. He's stands 5'-6" and weighs about 150 lbs. I'd trust him as my Battle Buddy in a firefight, or with an Uzi.
