There should be child abuse charges filed against Jay-Z and Beyonce. Acting like fools in front of their pre-teen child. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett too!

But a 9 year old with an Uzi is wicked cool!
I wonder why

Unbelievable that someone thought it a good idea to allow a child to handle an automatic Uzi, an 8 year old killed themselves in a similar fashion a few years ago.....

Pulling the trigger on a fully automatic pistol is like pulling the throttle on a motorcycle; we can't expect a nine year old kid to maintain control of something like that. Both the range "instructor" and the parent holding the video camera are idiots. I hope this poor girl sees it that way too and doesn't blame herself for what happened.
Still this is freak accident. A kid is 1,000 times more likely to be killed by a drunk driver or from a stray bullet fired by an inner city thug.

He got what he had coming. NO CHILD SHOULD USE A GUN, NEED TO BE 16 TO DRIVE A CAR SAME SHOULD BE FOR GUNS.

Agreed.

Notice how silent the NRA is on this issue?

No one can give any logical excuse why a child should ever handle an automatic weapon. This is a blatant example of gun nuts excessive use of their 2nd amendment rights. Now this poor girls life is ruined. Poor child.

Only in America ... what in the name of Jesus is wrong with us? Automatic weapons are toys a man is dead for no reason other than our gun obsession, and a 9-year-old is scarred for life.

My father is a gun collector. We grew up around guns. Never. Never would we be allowed to handle an Uzi, or an automatic weapon of any kind at 9 years old. What kind of idiot would let a 9 year old handle a gun? What kind of idiot hands a loaded gun to anyone much less a 9 year old? That child must live with the horror of what she accidentally did for the rest of her life. Her parents should be jailed for allowing this to happen.

As the totalitarian state expands with the help of the people you vote in and that you keep denying, we will see it even more clearly.

Its become a little old and boring-obnoxious in fact-about these debates every time some body gets shot with a fire arm.The fact is that we have a second amendment which states "the right to bare arms shall not be infringed"-and thats that.
