You've probably already heard by now, but if not:

a 9 year-old American girl was out enjoying a day of fun activities with her family at the local "Bullets and Burgers" when she accidentally shot her instructor in the face with an UZI. Whoops!

RIP Charles Vacca. Mr. Vacca was a hero who not only believed in 2nd Amendment rights, but he believved that gun owners like him are the ones who built this country, the ones who keep it safe, the ones who protect freedom. Mr. Vacca died doing what he loved, promoting an appreciation in young people for our most sacred right: the right to bear arms.

die-hard NRA member or just demented? make a tragic accident into a preemptive 2nd Amendment and gun rights statement? make a martyr of the deceased instructor who, it appears, made two BIG mistakes? the first was letting a child that young fire an Uzi, with it's attendant powerful recoil, to begin with. the second was taking the stance he did...to the left where the Uzi could, and did, recoil in the hands of the right-handed girl. true opportunistic gun-lover horse manure.

I am an extremely safety conscious gun owner and NRA member, and that was incident was extremely irresponsible on the part of the parents and the instructor. The little girl didn't know any better. The adults should have.

What gives you the right to tell other people how to parent their children? You are no better than Obama.

It's easy for you arm-chair lawyers to work yourself up over this, but keep in mind that no charges were filed because no crimes were committed.

A crime doesn't have to be committed for something to be a bad idea. In this case the end result justifies the concerns of the arm chair lawyers.

I cannot imagine what made the parents or the instructor this was a good idea to let this child handle this gun. Wonder why they did that? It's a tragic accident but totally avoidable... Sad all the way around.

Sick... this country is morally sick! Stop using the "2nd Amendment" incorrectly. Why the hell are people allowed to use semi-automatic weapons unless you're in the military? Guns are for killing. Animals for hunting, violent lawbreakers for the police and enemies in the military. THAT"S IT!

Guns are for protection, animals for sustenance, violet lawbreakers for prison, and respect is for the military.

It's an old saying but very true guns don't kill people...etc. The fact is you can kill someone with virtually anything. A baseball bat, tooth pick, glass bottle, or even a rolled up piece of toilet paper hardened in water. Should we ban all of these? No! Neither should we even consider a ban on guns. When I was a kid we were taught at an early age how to use and respect firearms, a practice that is not taught now. Everyone now teaches their children to be afraid of firearms. I taught my son how to fire and respect weapons when he was 8 years old as I am now teaching my daughter at 10. They both have a healthy respect for guns and how to operate them safely. I know if my daughter is at a friends house for a sleepover and they find a gun she will be responsible enough to know what to do, or more importantly what NOT to do because she has been taught to respect firearms and not to be afraid of them. Let's stop this nanny state we are living and take personal responsibility.

I don't think violet lawbreakers are a problem but the violent ones are.:)
