    Cliffs: Kid is at a range, shooting an UZI when he loses control of an uzi and shoots himself and dies.

    I just heard about this and its like 15 min away from my house. I was actually thinking about going there but I didn't have a chance this weekend. This is so sad and IMO they shouldn't be letting anyone under 18, nevermind an 8 year old, fire automatic weapons. Some just dont have the skill to handle the weapons.

    sounds like a good shoot, and he'll get off with just a smack in the head.

    there were adults there, that should have been in control... it will haunt each and every one of them... there was more stoopid, then is legally allowed there.

    i know if i die from something stoopid, and no one jokes about it... i'll be very disappointed.

    I doubt the kid did anything wrong, not really something to laugh about... Not that I would suggest an 8-year-old to shoot a FA gun, but I don't think the dad went to go drink a beer while the kid went willy-nilly.

    Sucks for the kid but parents are stupid for letting an 8yo shoot it.

    I'm surprised the Brady Campaign isn't dancing in the puddle of blood by now. They usually love stuff like this and pick it up real quick.

    yeah I'm honestly not surprised that this story isn't ripe for the picking on national news. Usually stories like this are fodder for the anti-2nd amendment people.

    Absolutely no excuse for this. Whoever that range officer was is a worthless human being.

    Would you let your 8 year old behind the wheel of a 9 second car just because it was "Bring your kid to the track day" at the dragstrip?

    Well, he sure blew it.
    That's what I call using your head.
    Not a way to get ahead in life.
    He'll never be the head of a major corporation.
    Too bad he wasn't more headstrong.

    Must have been the rare 10mm Uzi....we all know the 9mm is incapable of such a tragedy.
