ok I googled him and still don't see what caused him to become dehydrated other than stupidity...was he doing something specific? Or just a dehydrated naked moron who also happened to start a viral campaign?

He was on drugs or something and ran around naked after the Kony campaign went viral. He and his PR staff tried to play it off as dehydration. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is just as much of a fad as Invisible Children was, except that the money raised for ALS is actually doing some good.

People wonder why there is this argument about why the US needs gun laws. Apart from all the random killings, this act of idiocy is a prime example.

You're nine now, my girl. It's time for you to take up that great American past time...

This really isn't the place for a gun argument, but that one is on the responsibility of the parents.

I agree with you about it not being the time and place for yet another gun argument thread.

But I can't place all of the blame on the parents. Most of it, yes, because teaching any nine year old how to shoot is just idiotic, but a portion of the blame belongs to the guy who got shot. Did some neuron not fire in the instructor's head telling him that teaching a little girl how to fire an SMG on automatic could be a bad idea?

When do you think is the proper time to teach someone to defend themselves?

And I blame the instructor for not considering her strength vs recoil, and standing where he'd be in the line of fire if recoil caused her to lose control - which it did.

I think it's proper & responsible to teach a 9 year old to shoot a gun.

But not an uzi. That's just stupid as a parent & an instructor (imo)

& I believe that uzi's are illegal. Which is irrelevant to any statement about gun control & further proves that more laws does not mean more safe.

Since when has an Uzi been a good way to teach your kids about self defense?

If you want your kid to learn how to defend themselves, send her to karate or something.

@No2pencil: How can it ever be responsible to teach a 9 year old how to fire a gun?

With proper usage, understanding, & respect, they grow up to be a responsible adult.

Again, this really isn't the place for this discussion. No one will ever convince the other.

Some people fear guns & think they only mean bad things, other people chose to let individuals make up their own mind & value their rights.

No argument ever wins, no one ever sees it the other way. This isn't the place.

I can understand this answer, thanks No2, but I do still feel that aged 9 is a bit too young to be starting on such things.

I could go on about a few of your other comments, but like you say, no point in arguing about it. This isn't the palce, and the argument never goes anywhere.
