"All Right, Full Auto!" Last Words Of Certified Uzi Instructor To 9 Year Old Girl

Alan: Anyone stupid enough to believe that "proper training" ensures that shooters "don't have accidents" 
is an idiot, a self-blinded ideologue, or both.

Accidents happen.

Play with fire and there's a good chance you'll get burned - a much better chance than not playing with fire in the first place.

Second Amendment Evangelists arederanged people. 

It requires a well-polished set of brass balls to argue against the factual truth that far more family members are killed by weapons in the home than the trivial number of law-abiding citizens who actually ward off injury or death by using a firearm. 

Delusional advocates of weapons designed to kill human beings 
are paranoid but functional insofar as they rarely have visual or auditory hallucinations. 

However, their ability to deny firearm facts is itself hallucinatory -- seeing things that are not there, or seeing nothing where something is.

9 year-old girl accidentally kills shooting instructor with Uzi submachine gun

Instructor at Arizona shooting range dies after young girl loses control of powerful automatic weapon

Videotape of the instructors interaction with the 9 year old is embedded in a New York Times article at

Charles Vacca was showing the unnamed youngster how to fire the weapon at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in the Mohave Desert in White Hills, Arizona, when the gun recoiled as she pulled the trigger.
In a statement, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said the 39-year-old was hit in the head by a stray bullet as the Israeli-made Uzi kicked back. He was airlifted to the University Medical Centre in Las Vegas, where he was later pronounced dead.
A video released by the police showed the slender girl with a ponytail and wearing pink shorts being instructed in how to aim the gun by Vacca.
His final words, captured on video, were: “All right, full auto."
The nine-year-old had been at the range with her parents – the family were on holiday in the area.
Sam Scarmardo, the manager of the Last Stop range, told NBC News that "the establish[ed] practice at most shooting ranges is eight-years-old and up with parental supervision."
Friends of the dead man, a former soldier who was married with a young family, paid tribute to him on Facebook.
His best friend Robert Vera said: “He became a brother and a major part of my life through thick and thin. Rest In Peace brother.”
Describing Vacca as a "great guy, with a great sense of humour," Mr Scarmardo said he was "very conscientious and very professional."
"I just ask everybody to pray for Charlie, and pray for the client. She’s going to have a hard time," he added.
A popular tourist spot as the last place travellers can get food and fuel on their way to or from Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, the Last Stop's website invites visitors to “Shoot a machine gun at Arizona’s last stop”.
According to the range’s website, visitors can take part in a “Burgers and Bullets” day, including lunch and a choice of more than 20 automatic weapons to shoot with.
It is illegal for children under the age of 18 to carry a gun in Arizona, but the rule does not apply on private property or if the youngster is accompanied by a parent or certified instructor.
The shooting is likely to lead to further calls for gun control in the US, an increasinlgy polarising topic across the country.
Ronald Scott, a Phoenix-based firearms safety expert, told AP: "You can't give a nine-year-old an Uzi and expect her to control it."
