It took me 2+ hours of searching the tubes this morning to find something appropriate for this week's WTF Wednesday post. I never thought I'd see the day when it would be so hard to find something ridiculous.
A firearms instructor has died after he was shot by a nine-year-old girl when she fired an Uzi at a shooting range in the Arizona desert.
Mohave County Sheriff Jim McCabe told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Vacca was standing next to the girl when she pulled the trigger. The gun recoiled and it went over her head.
Arizona law prohibits minors from possessing a firearm unless they are accompanied by a parent, guardian or an instructor, among other exceptions. Deputies said the 9-year-old girl was at the shooting range with her parents.
Happily, the gun instructor is dead and the little girl is fine (physically, at least). In a just world, the parents would be charged with and convicted of negligent homicide and imprisoned. But this isn't a just world, as you might have noticed.
