    Why the **** would a nine year old girl need to know how to handle an uzi? The mentality of the gun freaks just goes to prove they should never be allowed to handle or be anywhere near a gun, serves the pillock right...

    Because this happened in America. When it comes to guns nobody in America is capable of using common sense.

    This is the NRA take on it:

    THE National Rifle Association of America has called on US shooting ranges to employ tougher gun instructors to deal with inexperienced children wishing to use military weapons, it has been revealed today.

    And now a nine year old girl has to live the rest of her life knowing she killed someone the poor kids going to need some serious therapy..

    What ones that can take a bullet in the head and shrug it off? I think they should give Chuck Norris a call..

    Presumably tough enough to refuse to teach the children at all and to beat the crap out of the parents if they insist!

    I can understand the need for people to know how to defend themselves especially young women and children if they lived in a country where murder, rape and kidnapping are a common occurrence. Places like Somalia, Syria, and other second world war zones.
    The only danger Americans face are other gun toting nut jobs.

    I can't imagine any charges being brought against the child for this incident but maybe the parents should be made responsible. I was going to say the gun club should be made to be held accountable for the incident but the instructor paid the ultimate price.

    Sorry to offend any Americans on here but aside for sport reasons why on earth are most of you obsessed with the need of owning a gun? Surely if you didn't have as many guns you wouldn't need them to protect yourself.

    There is no reason to own a gun really. For some reason people feel like they need to. In rough neighborhoods it makes sense but outside of that there are many gun owners that don't use them for sport and don't need any protection outside of their house alarm security system.

    I was discussing this with a US customer over dinner a few weeks ago - trying to explain to him why the rest of the world simply cannot understand why America refuses to even entertain the notion of firearms control, in the teeth of a procession of school massacres, police shootings, etc. Surely they can see that to prevent such things occurring, they should remove the means by which they are facilitated?

    He had the decency to look fairly uncomfortable for a few seconds, and admitted that from outside the US, their position made no sense...and then proceeded to show me pictures of his gun collection! (mostly WW2-era military rifles & handguns). He claimed to be more of a collector of history than a gun nut (yeah, right).

    He then told me that he had a concealed-carry permit, and kept a .357 magnum for "home defense" - I asked him what threats he expected to face in suburban Pennsylvania, his answer was, "well - you can't be too careful...".

    He made no comment when I challenged him on the wisdom of civilians owning Assault Rifles and Barrett .50cal sniper rifles.

    I think that the right to keep and bear arms is so indelibly ingrained within the American psyche, that it overrides their common sense - trying to get them to give them up would be like trying to get them to stop wearing trousers (or pants, if you prefer).

    (I would like to point out that he was a thoroughly decent chap, and we got along very well indeed!)

    I think that more young Americans should be taught to use machine pistols with no physical contact with their instructors. It would be better still if the instructors had to stand there in bathing trunks.

    Ahhhh! America! The only country in the world where a foreign tourist can walk into a gun range and spend $50 to hire an MP5 with ammo and go and shoot it. What a wonderful country. I am surprised there is so much trouble with people trying to smuggle weapons when you can hire them in a number of states.

    If I lived in the US I would probably own guns, perhaps the following:
    Browning 'Nine Milly' or Hi-Power as it's commonly called.
    HK MP-5.
    Browning shotgun, over & under of some type.
    Sniper rifle of some type, not quite sure which though.
    I've thought about a machine gun but they're a little too unwieldy.
    I respect firearms, and I know how to handle them safely.......well, there was that one incident with the anti-tank missile but no-one talks about that.
