The news a nine-year-old girl accidentally killed her firearms instructor with an Uzi submachine gun during a family vacation has shocked people across the country and the world.

As absurd and irresponsible as it is, the gun industry aggressively markets firearms use as "wholesome family fun." Bullets and Burgers, the Nevada establishment where the deadly incident occurred, is TripAdvisor's #1 attraction in Las Vegas with nearly 1,000 five star ratings, with the user reviews repeating the industry's anyone-can-have-fun-with-guns enthusiasm.

Gun safety and responsibility continue to get pushed aside in these conversations. What are your thoughts on fixing these gun free-for-alls?
