Is it wrong to find this amusing?

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.
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!
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.
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!)
Like this Bill Boddy?
Browning 'Nine Milly' or Hi-Power as it's commonly called.
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.
