Bullets & Burgers

From Gothic horror to modern American horror. In an Arizona shooting range called Bullets and Burgers, a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot her instructor in the head when she lost control of the Uzi submachine gun she was firing. Her parents filmed the accident, a shortened version of which has been released by the Mojave County Sheriff's office. The girl successfully fired a single shot at the target, then her instructor sets the Uzi to automatic and the film cuts. He died after being airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas (CLICK). Thomas Jefferson, who enshrined the right to bear arms in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution in 1791, would turn in his grave if he saw the murderous military firepower being put in the hands of American children. In Jefferson's day the guns were muzzle-loaders: muskets, duelling pistols, blunderbusses and cannon.
