Idiot fuckwad parents kill people.
An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.
The boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman’s Club, police Lt. Lawrence Vallierpratte said.
As the boy fired the Uzi, “the front end of the weapon went up with the backfire and he ended up receiving a round in his head,” police Lt. Hipolito Nunez said. The boy died at a hospital.
The boy’s father and older brother were also there at the time, a gun club member and school official said. Francis Mitchell, a longtime member and trustee of the club, said he was told the boy’s father was supporting his son from behind when the shooting happened. …
The event ran in conjunction with C.O.P Firearms and Training. “It’s all legal & fun — No permits or licenses required!!!!” reads the ad, posted on the club’s Web site.
Words utterly fail. How is it possibly legal to hand your eight-year-old kid an Uzi?
