    Mass. boy dies after accidentally shooting himself

    WESTFIELD, Mass. – An 8-year-old boy has died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision in western Massachusetts.

    Police Lt. Lawrence Valliere says the boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman's Club. Police say the force of the weapon made it "travel up and back" to the boy's head.

    The victim was taken to Baystate Medical Center where he died.

    His name was not immediately released.

    Law enforcement officials say although the incident appears to be an accident, police and the Hampden District Attorney's office are investigating.

    Efforts to reach officials with the private club were not immediately successful.

    This accident sounds like it was the result of limp-wristing. Regardless, it tragic to lose a child this way.

    NOT a smart thing to do letting a young child fire a sub machine gun. Hello.....McFly!
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    Nobody has any business letting an 8-year old fire an UZI!!! How about maybe just a BB gun or a .22 rifle to get the little guy started???

    Especially a full auto UZI. With proper supervision an 8 year old could fire a semi auto UZI safely for a round or two. Heck I've seen people that can't fire full auto safely much less than an 8 year old!

    Who was supervising the adults?

    Unfortunately here in Mass antis will have a field day with this one. No child should be shooting a UZI. Sorry! Poor judgment on the instructors’ behalf. As a result, a child is dead.
