This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What were these so-called "adults" thinking? Why would anyone hand an 8 y/o a sub-machine gun? Everyone involved is to blame here. The club, the instructor, the parents. It does not take much common sense to understand an 8-Year-Old should not be handling an Uzi, supervised or not. This tragedy was totally preventable, everyone involved should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. I am now oficially sick to my stomach for the day.

You know...I'm anti-gun control laws.....I fully support the NRA, and am a gun owner myself. However.....this is so wrong. I cannot imagine handing an UZI to my child. This is so sad!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!
