Free Beer & Hot Wings: 9-Year-Old Shoots, Kills Firearms Instructor [Video/Poll]

While vacationing with her family in Arizona, a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed a shooting range instructor while she was firing an Uzi.

While being instructed at an outdoor shooting range in Dolan Springs, Ariz., on how to use the gun — an automatic weapon, she lost control of it because of its recoil. The gun ended up going up and over her and shooting the instructor in the head, ABC News reported.

The instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, was flown to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he was pronounced dead Monday night.

The gun range‘s owner said that since the girl was over the required age of 8 years old, she was allowed to fire the weapon.

Should a 9-year-old girl been allowed to shoot an automatic weapon? Yes or no?
