The girls parents and more importantly the instructor are to blame here for extremely poor judgment which lead to a death and likely this girl being traumatized for life. Obviously, the parent are idiots, but the instructor should have refused to do this. He should know better and should be the first one at that place enforcing strict safety rules. Allowing a 9-year-old girl to even handle a loaded weapon with that much power and recoil is absurd... much less a fully automatic weapon like an Uzi.
This thread and the posts in it are a perfect example of why it's mostly impossible to have thoughtful discussions on CV. One guy says that this flag is being banned and then everyone just assumes he's right and starts ranting and getting angry. Who cares about the truth or about even reading the actual text of the bill. Even the OP who quoted the text apparently couldnt be bothered to read it. If so then it'd be obvious that the flag is not being banned at all.
"The State of California may not sell or display the Battle Flag of the Confederacy, also referred to as the Stars and Bars, or any similar image, or tangible personal property, inscribed with such an image unless the image appears in a book, digital medium, or state museum that serves an educational or historical purpose."
This recent law in the California legislator simply needs to be signed by the governor, and the damn thing will be banned. Here's to seeing it spread further to all the good parts of the United States!
