The age of the shooter was not the problem. The whole situation was doomed from the start. The parents allowed the child to become familiar with a firearm (no problem there) with an instructor that led them to believe he was duly qualified for the task at hand. Therein lies the problem. It was his responsibility to determine that his "student" was qualified for the activity and then proceed in a safe manner. I was an instructor in the military, law enforcement and a hunter safety instructor plus a competitive shooter for decades. One thing an INSTRUCTOR never does is allow ANY shooter to use a weapon beyond their ability. This one did. The child was not familiar with the weapon and firing "one test round" before going full auto is stupid at best. My children began "gun safety" at about 3-4 years of age. No, I did not say they started shooting at that age but each began when they were ready, willing and able. My wife has even fired an automatic but only after proper instruction. The parents were obviously comfortable with the instructor's credentials and maybe those credentials were false. That is for the courts to decide. The problem is the child in this case will always remember this incident and I am sure will affect her forever. After all this was a preventable accident. If you go to YouTube you can find many videos displaying shooters operating weapons they should not be allowed to use. The spectators in the videos think it is funny to see people losing control of the weapons as they squeeze the triggers. I DON'T. People can be seriously injured and or killed while giving the spectators a reason to laugh. Would you put your friends, girlfriend or spouse in control of an Indy race car so you can watch them crash and burn for the benefit of a laugh? Would you hand them a stick of TNT with a lit fuse so you can laugh at their reaction? These problem begins with the morons behind the camera but usually they are not the ones injured. Doing almost anything can be dangerous. The goal is to do things in a safe manner. Those of us who have witnessed people injured or killed do not willingly engaged in dangerous activities without caution. Crossing the street, driving a vehicle or skydiving are dangerous activities and should be practiced with common sense. That is why we have instructors and students. May God Bless the families affected by this tragedy and I pray the young lady can handle the pain in the years to come.
It is difficult for a person such as DWS to defend the actions of the new Communist Party of America. CPOA. You have a person like her trying to displace joe biden as the Village Idiot. I am sure it is a tie.
I know one department where applicants who failed the written entrance exam had to wait 6 months before being allowed to try again. A Black applicant was allowed to retake the test after 6 WEEKS. Even then this college graduate failed and was allowed to retake it until he passed. I think he must of had it memorized because it took 4 or 5 tries before he passed. (affirmative action????) He lasted a couple of years and he was allowed to resign to avoid prosecution for the harassment of female citizens when he tried to hustle them for dates while on duty and in uniform.
The girls only problem is because their grandfather is the village idiot.
Speaking of New Jersey wife beaters how many times did the "good people" of NJ return congressman jim moran to congress? Numerous complaints but never a charge????? Wife beating is permitted by NJ but owning a firearm is illegal. BEAT YOUR WIFE BUT DON'T BUY A GUN unless you are a judge or a politician. Talk about being stupid. I wonder how much money bloomberg is paying the judge and the district attorney in this case????

Katie, you are right he was a great Sheriff and a loyal American. I too am suspicious of the circumstances. Sounds like an investigation by another agency, Maricopa County SO maybe, is warranted.
obama is a Muslim so why would he care about Christians in the middle east or any other place? He has one goal in mind and that is the destruction of the USA while we pay for his vacations and golf games. The dumb (democrats) in America had better wake up to this fact.
The photo of this clown needs the caption "This is your brain on drugs". He is a PNUF, Provides No Useful Purpose.
It seems this Blitzer idiot went to the "Joe Biden School of Stupidity" which does not surprise me. Blitzer has been a joke ever since he opened his mouth even as a child.

We all now know the city of Ft Collins, their attorney and the Police Dept are a bunch of morons. I thought all of the Fruits, Nuts and Flakes were in Khalifornia but I guess some migrated to the Communist state of Colorado.
