29 Aug 2014
Powerful US gun lobby, National Rifle Association, took the opportunity to present on social media ways children can “have fun at the shooting range” following the horrific accidental killing of a shooting instructor by a 9-year-old girl in Arizona.

Charles Vacca - a 39-year-old shooting instructor at a combined fast-food restaurant and firing range called Bullets and Burgers in White Hills, Arizona - was fatally shot in the head on Monday when a young girl he was directing lost control of an Uzi in “fully-automatic” mode. The 9-year old was on vacation from New Jersey with her family.
