That 9-year-old girl who accidentally killed her firearms instructor with an Uzi submachine gun is the victim of child abuse (“Shooting by Girl, 9, Stirs Debate Over Guns,” Aug. 28). She may never get over the incident. Her parents and all those who approved of allowing such a tiny child to handle such a heavy weapon are the guilty ones. Please make sure she gets some counseling.

I knew a young man who killed a friend accidentally with a gun when he was a child. He never got over it.

Shame on those parents and our society for allowing such a terrible tragedy to happen.
