    Criminal Charges in Death of Boy Who Shot Himself at Gun Show

    A police chief and a Massachusetts gun club have been indicted for involuntary manslaughter in the death of an 8-year-old boy who accidentally shot himself with a Uzi at an October gun expo in Massachusetts.

    Pelham Police Chief Edward Fleury owns COP Firearms & Training, which sponsored the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman's Club, where 8-year-old Christopher Bizilj accidentally shot himself in the head in October after losing control of the 9 mm Micro Uzi submachine gun.

    In addition to the manslaughter indictments, Fleury and the Westfield Sportsman's Club were also indicted on four counts each of furnishing a gun to a minor.

    The NRA had about as much to do with that as it had to do with the last letter carrier who went Postal on fellow employees.

    It's a tragic situation and it shouldn't have happened AND if the people sponsoring the show were responsible it wouldn't have happened. Rightly, those people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. A police chief… Geez…

    The NRA makes sure that guns are available to as many people as possible, so they can shoot themselves and their aquaintances.

    It's a public service.

    Don't you feel silly making such patently absurd statements?

    Yes...and I hope that all the members of the AAA are happy with the role they've played in all those automobile deaths throughout this nation everyday. Bastards.

    This issue was discussed ad nauseum before. Practically every member of the board who supports the 2nd Ammendment stated clearly that this was a perfect example of people using firearms improperly with tragic results and those responsible should be prosecuted.

    Chris...I suppose you also support taking away our ability to drive cars because people sometimes drive like idiots with tragic results? After all...they used the machine improperly and often cause accidents...quick...blame the auto makers or better yet, organizations that support the safe and legal use of the machine...like AAA.

    Idiotic anti-gun tripe...
