Life, Liberty and the Right of a Child to Fire an Uzi

The news made many Americans do a double-take. Wait a minute: this news story says a 9-year-old girl accidentally killed her gun instructor while he was teaching her to use…an Uzi? An UZI?! One of those Israeli-designed compact sub automatic machine guns? That gun that can fire 600 rounds per minute? It just had to be a bad joke. But it wasn’t a joke. It was a tragedy — and a sign of the times. “All right,...

Report: Groupon selling Uzi target practice same week girl shoots Uzi instructor dead

As the son of a World War II Greatest Generation veteran who believed showing a teenager how to shoot a gun was a way to instruct him or her on concentration and target practice and not a game or flippant political statement, I’m still sorting out my complex feelings on the case of the 9 year old girl who mistakenly killed her gun instructor who was teaching her how to use an Uzi. The last part seven words of the sentence still...

Can John Hinckley Be Tried For The Murder Of James Brady?

Having completed countless death certificates over the years I find these to be far less meaningful than the general public--a fact that I bet most physicians are well aware of. The cause of death is often questionable, especially when a patient dies at home and no autopsy is done. In that case we must assume that the medical examiner is correct when they say that the cause of death is natural, and typically attribute the cause to...

Your Problem with Guns or Gays Is Not Political

Last month, I did something I’d done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes. This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture. Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I’d had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn’t a bad shot, even with a...

Mainstreaming Radicalism

Mainstreaming Radicalism By Jason Stanford It is getting harder to tell the right-wing nut jobs who shoot law enforcement officers from the right-wing politicians running for president. America has always had its share of John Birchers hoarding guns for a coming revolution. What’s new is that the GOP has mainstreamed radicalism and turned violently anti-government rhetoric into Republican Party doctrine. This kind of thing has...
