Some things I will just will never understand. For example, this story about a shooting instructor who was killed on the firing range while he was teaching a 9-year-old girl to shoot a Uzi submachine gun.
What the hell?
I'm not a big fan of gun, but at the same time, I realize they can be useful. But come on, a child with an Uzi?
This terrible accident took place in an Arizona facility called Last Stop (how appropriate!), which includes a bar and restaurant and an RV park, and also features a "Burgers and Bullets" program of lunch and a go on the shooting range.
But a 9-year-old with a submachine gun!!!
Now maybe it's selective attention on my part but it seems that for every story of a home owner defending their life by shooting an intruder, there are three or four more of people shooting and often killing someone by accident - and the majority of these being children or youths playing with guns.
Regardless of how one feels about guns and gun control, surely we all can agree they make very poor and very dangerous toys. And how any adult could abide with the idea that a submachine gun in the hands of a child is appropriate, I'll never know.
