Well, perhaps you didn't know that there have been and continue to be children who are taught at an early age to have respect for guns/rifles and how to properly use it.
If the uzi relly was a full-auto, then that was stupid. Just like you don't give a 9 year old a shutgun to hunt because it has too much of a kickback for the child to be able to control it.

Theres 4 types of gun people in the USA:
Those who like guns next to their bed for defense
Those who like safe gun safety and for defense but keep them out of sight in a cabinet (perhaps those with kids)
Those who just like them at the range, target shooting
And simply those who dislike all guns

I'd find the instructor and the Mom and Dad ALL guilty of child negligent homicide.
The parents were Stupid for letting this child take such a course - the instructor should have Refused to teach this to a 9 year old.
No, it's not enough a girl was needlessly killed - these people need jail time.
You may say no because it's enough that a kid died and that's punishment enough. Nope, put em all behind bars to let others know this behavior is a Criminal offense and put the risk and weight on the responsible parties. People tend to think twice if there is jail time involved, over and above the consequences of killing someone. If it takes multiple threats to make someone think twice before doing something stupid, then so be it.
