A nine year-old girl in the US has killed her shooting instructor by accident while being shown how to use a high-powered automatic weapon. The instructor was giving the girl a lesson at a shooting range in Arizona when the recoil from the first shot caused her to lose control of the Uzi. More here. Why the hell does a 9 year old need to be taught how to use an Uzi? Is there something fundamentally wrong with people? No doubt I will see the "teach them the dangers young" rubbish. A man has lost his life and a young girl scarred for life in the name of what? Ridiculous.

I'm sorry... I don't have anything else to say except that 'vicenews' site has a lot...
