An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.
The boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman's Club, police Lt. Lawrence Vallierpratte said.
Police said the boy, Christopher Bizilj of Ashford, Conn., was with a certified instructor and called the death a "self-inflicted accidental shooting."
And this from the Kansas City Star:John Toplikar's [R] politically embarrassing YouTube Moment came over the weekend. It could (and should) help cost him re-election as a Johnson County Commissioner.
Olathe police have charged Toplikar with stealing campaign signs of his 6th District opponent, Calvin Hayden.
The Hayden campaign has posted video of the event, and part of the police discussion with Toplikar, here.
Conservatives in Olathe and western parts of the county have elected and re-elected Toplikar.
