One Connecticut family’s visit to an area gun show ended in tragedy when their 8-year-old son inadvertently fired an Uzi submachine at himself and subsequently died from the resulting wounds. Christopher Bizilj had picked up the displayed weapon to examine it more closely. After the Uzi jammed, it was cleared by a 15-year-old booth worker and handed back to the boy, who then lost control of the gun and fired several shots that struck his own head. The Bizilj family has filed a lawsuit in the case, naming the booth employee, event organizers, and the owner of the weapon as negligent.
