arma virumque cano (et alia)
Dying is part of being "held accountable" for poor decisions.
The bumbling and now dead range officer was the least one responsible for allowing this travesty of a good family outing. The owner of the range who allows very young kids to fire guns should be locked up and put out of business. And the highly irresponsible NJ couple should be charged with child endangerment - but not to worry, this is the wild west so none of that will happen.
Because even better for this poor girl would be to throw her in a foster home. Besides, that job falls on NJ, not the "wild west" state.
The crime, or at least what should be considered a crime, too place in Nevada ( or was it over the border in AZ?). That's where daddy should be charged.
I love the way the instructor yells, "Alright!" after the first shot. Cool beans. He was the big expert, right? Gun safety course epic fail. I can't watch it without chuckling.Maybe we can bolt a machine gun to a beam and bracket the pivot so that there is only thirty degrees play and maybe fifteen degrees up and down. Like at the amusement park or a carnival. Then the little kiddies wouldn't have to shoulder the kick and they could safely spray bullets to their little hearts' content. A win-win.As far as accountability. As her parent, or the surviving spouse of the deceased, I would definitely sue the shooting range, if for nothing else than to try to put them out of business. If he was married, his wife will need a source of income.It may be that this grossly negligent way of doing business would run afoul of federal or state laws.
No doubt they signed a waiver to participate.
Indeed. That's why the owner of the range should be locked the fuck up.
