According to this AP story, a young boy accidentally killed himself yesterday at a gun show in Massachusetts yesterday.
With an instructor watching, an 8-year-old boy at a gun fair aimed an Uzi at a pumpkin and pulled the trigger as his dad reached for a camera.
It was his first time shooting a fully automatic machine gun, and the recoil of the weapon was too much for him. He lost control and fatally shot himself in the head.
So I have a couple of questions:
- What kind of father takes his 8-year-old son to a gun show?
- Retard father aside, what idiot hands a loaded Uzi to an 8-year-old?
- Why do gun shows even exist?
I feel bad for any father who sees his son die like that, and I know this sounds harsh, but deep down he must know that it’s his fault.
