Vacca was showing her how to use automatic Uzi when the accident happened. The girl pulled the trigger and the gun’s recoil sent it over her head.

And this is why a child shouldn't have access to a gun. When will people learn? This child will live with this for the rest of her life now. So sad.

Because this is what every 9 year old should be learning to do on their summer vacations. Gotta learn to shoot 'dem messicans', right guys??!! Pitiful. Parents and facility should face charges for child abuse and child endangerment. This child is going to be affected for the rest of her life over this senseless tragedy. Why does a 9 year old child need to know how to shoot an Uzi? So that her redneck KKK parents can brag to their equally racist friends about how ready they are for a border war? Ridiculous. That child should be taken away. These parents obviously lack common sense.

My apologies, but how did you draw from this story that her parents were KKK racists? Fools hiding behind their computers spouting crap like yours "obviously lack common sense" as well. I agree that this was a tragic event that should have never been placed in a young girls hands, but how about you save your hate for one of your friends, coward.

Eff u dude. What kind of idiot puts an Uzi in a young child's hands. Probably an ignorant one like you. Arizona is crawling with racists and hate mongers that keep spouting nonsense about their second amendment rights and how illegal aliens are ruining this country. This is the home of hate mongers like Jan Brewer and Sheriff Arpaio and everytime I pick up the paper, there is something about their hate of people across the border as though they are ALL criminals. I'm a coward? That my real name up there bud. Not Pez Mom! STFU
