@Intrepid,
What comments do you want me to make? It's a terrible thing and could have been easily avoided. Someone made a bad mistake and it cost the kid his life.

@cjhsa,
Yeah, and how many parents give their 8 year old permission to drive the car?

What do you think the charge would be against a parent that let their 8 year old drive and that child crashed and killed themselves? Not only would it piss me off that a parent did such a thing, I would support them being charged with a crime.

Always blame the victim.

@cjhsa,
The victim was the child. I did NOT blame the child.

I do blame you for being an idiot however, so I guess sometimes I do blame the victim. But they usually have to be the victim of their own stupidity for me to blame them.

@parados,
You want to blame someone don't you? And, you point at the parent for taking the kid out for a day at the range doing something PERFECTLY LEGAL.

So, you want to ban the activity and jail the parent. I suggest you ban cars (yours) instead and volunteer for prison time, because you are a criminal douchebag.

@cjhsa,
I suppose you think it's OK for parents to give a bottle of poison to their 3 year old to play with. Heck, it's legal.

I don't believe I said the activity should be banned. Thinking it is stupid to let an 8 year old do it is not the same thing as wanting to ban the activity completely. Thinking you are stupid seems to be the only logical conclusion based on your comments.

What, in your learned opinion, was the mistake and who made it?

Thats how you stop CEEJ, with impeccable logic. He certainly doesnt use any.
The father, a director of an emergency medicine center, was surprised as to how it happened.
AN 8YEAR OLD KID WHO HAD NO EXPERIENCE WITH A 9mm MACHINE GUN BEFORE, WAS GIVEN A MACHINE GUN TO FIRE!!!. HIS OLE MAN< AN EMERGENCY ROON PHYSICIAN< HAD NO IDEA ABOUT MACHINE GUNS?

I BELIEVE THAT THIS GUY AND CEEJ SHARE A SIMILAR 2 DIGIT IQ.

You really think ceejay's I.Q goes as high as double digits? Remember, guys, don't engage in a battle of wits with this person. You' ll be fighting an unarmed man.

Apparently, he needed more training and better observation
by the "trained professional " who was with him to make sure
that he held it correctly and securely (which he did not).
Possibly, the professional shoud have held the muzzle down
until the boy got used to firing a submachinegun.
Contrary to the thrust of this article, 9mm Uzis really do not
have much recoil. How many, many times have we seen
Moslem children on TV news with AK 47s
or submachineguns, who have no injuries; hands-on education
is the answer, with the " professional " closely watching,
at the beginning.

In any case, the negative emotion appears not to be directed
against accidents, as if he had fallen off of his bike,
or had drowned while swimming in a lake. I knew someone
who drowned while fishing. The negative emotion appears
to be directed against children using GUNS and only
incidentally against dying.

When kids drown no one bitterly screams that children
shoud be prevented from swimming. When thay fall off of
their bikes, no one demands that thay be prevented from
riding bikes anymore. When thay get killed playing ball,
no one says that ball games must end.

When thay get killed in traffic accidents, driven in cars by their parents,
no one demands that parents stop driving them around,
and when thay get hit by cars, or kidnapped, on the way to school,
no one demands that thay stop going to school.

Anti-freedom people simply take advantage of every possible tragedy
to use it as an excuse to curtail any possible freedom in America,
especially freedom for children.

When I was 8, I was surrounded by armed children
and we never had any injuries therefrom.
We fired submachineguns at the National Guard range.
My next door neighbor was a captain.
We had no problems.

@OmSigDAVID,
Those things are not meant to kill...idiot. Guns, machineguns et all ARE meant to kill. You, in your crazed need for weapons, cannot comprehend what others perceive as a needless loss of life. This should be considered murder...not an accident.

An uzi seems to be a very powerful weapon that was designed to be an efficient killing machine. Is there any other purpose to this weapon other than killing humans. You can target practice with a less war like gun. Why does an eight year old have to handle an uzi? What does it teach him? It makes about as much sense as letting a child drive a nuclear submarine.
