“The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.” — Senator Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN)

The accident happened at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills, Arizona. A 9 year old was with an instructor. She was being shown how to shoot a full auto Uzi. It got away from her.
The instructor was pronounced dead after being airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas.
Opinions being what they are, along with just how perfect hindsight can be, I can say that letting a 9 year old any inexperienced person hold an automatic with a full magazine is an extra level of risk. A sad event for everyone involved.
