Wonder what her "What I did on summer vacation" essay will say.

At that age IMO they shouldn't have anything other than a cap gun.

As many of us here, I've served in the military and emergency services. I've hunted and shot weapons most of my life, starting at about eight years old. When I was learning to shoot, Dad or Grandpa would load a single round. If instructions were followed to the letter then I got another single round to fire. I did the same while teaching my nieces to shoot and also while teaching Boy Scouts and Jr. ROTC to shoot in the Army.

The "instructor" who allowed a nine-year-old to fire a semi-automatic with more than one round in the weapon can't blame the kid for his being shot in the head. You can't really blame the parents either as they probably assumed that said instructor was a well-trained professional.

OK, after watching a video purportedly of the incident I must have to use an Internet acronym and say OMG! If this is a real, the "instructor" didn't give the girl a semi-automatic sporting arm but a fully-automatic sub-machinegun. Who is their right mind would let a child fire a machinegun? In the army we were not allowed to fire full auto until we had had several weeks of firearms training.

because some people are well immensely dense.

I can forgive a child being let to shoot a single shot low powered revolver or something but giving a child an uzi to shoot then I am sorry to say he deserves everything he got and her parents should have child neglect charges against them and possible manslaughter charges.

According to a CNN article, this guy apparently was a member of the National Guard so he had absolutely no excuse for his improper instruction. I feel sorry for the girl, who is probably going to have to spend time in counseling for killing someone through no fault of her own.

That's why kids under 13 should only use crew served weapons

I agree with everything posted here. Dumb move to let her have that kind of weapon.
