A New Jersey couple, visiting Bullets and Burgers (a tourist attraction in northern Arizona) decided it would be fun if they videoed their 9 year old daughter firing an Uzi sub-machine gun. The girl lost control of the weapon and accidentally shot the instructor in the head while the parents were filming the lesson. The instructor died instantly. WHAT WERE THESE IDIOT PARENTS THINKING????
Guns have no place in the hands of children, and this little girl will carry in her mind the image of what occurred for the rest of her life. Those parents made a fatal error in judgement when they encouraged their little girl, in her gray shirt and pink shorts, to fire that weapon.
I am wondering how this incident will change the lives in that family. Do they own guns? Is that the reason that they decided to stop at Bullets and Burgers? What will happen when they get back to New Jersey and people ask them about their family vacation?? Will they show them that video????
"Look, Harry! Let's stop here so little Susie
can shoot a machine gun! It will be a great
video to show the folks back home!"
Several years ago, a 7 year old boy died while firing a Uzi. The recoil from the powerful weapon struck him in the chest. It's just another example of ignorant parents making fatal decisions that cost a life.
Is it just my imagination, or are people in this country getting dumber by the minute??
