I know we’re not supposed to ever say anything bad about guns, the gun industry or gun shows, but news of a Massachusetts tragedy reminded us of the inherent danger of cozying up to this hobby (and way of life).
Three gun-lovers, including a police chief, were indicted last week as a result of the probe into how an 8-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed himself with an Uzi at a gun show recently.
“A Micro Uzi is made by and for the Israeli Armed Forces and is intended to meet the needs of the Israeli Special Forces,” Bennett said. “It is not a hunting weapon.”
I’m sure the National Rifle Association will contest that, given its strident defense of automatic weapons. But that’s one more family that would have been better off with a less lethal hobby.
