Re "Shooting by 9-year-old girl stirs debate over guns" (Nation/World, Aug. 27): The mere fact that a parent would allow a small 9-year-old child to fire a heavy automatic weapon is unfathomable. This is a war weapon, not a play toy or a starter target practice gun.

Both the instructor, who paid with his life, and these parents should be ashamed of their actions. The parents should be punished for allowing and witnessing this atrocity.

Arizona and any other state that allows weapons of this type need to change its laws.
