Oregon shooters dad says it's guns fault
#1
Again... America the land of no accountability...

Quote:The father of the Roseburg, Oregon, shooter said he doesn't know where his son got his weapons, and he declined to comment much on his son's mental state, but he was quick to say what he thought was to blame in the deadly college attack: Guns.

Ian Mercer, during an interview outside his California home Saturday, told CNN that he didn't know his son had a single gun, let alone 13. He asked, "How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?"

"We talk about gun laws. We talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens, they talk about it and nothing gets done. I'm not trying to say that that's to blame for what happened, but if Chris had not been able to get hold of 13 guns, this wouldn't have happened," the father said.

Other countries don't see mass shootings at the same clip that the United States does, he said, asserting, "Somebody has to ask the question: How is it so easy to get all these guns?"


His condemnation of guns grew stronger as the interview went on, and he closed his remarks on the subject with a call for change.


"It has to change. How can it not? Even people that believe in the right to bear arms, what right do you have to take people's lives? That's what guns are, the killers. Simple as that. Simple as that. It's black and white. What do you want a gun for?"


Pressed on whether his son's mental state could be to blame for the violence, Mercer declined to comment, saying he wanted to let police follow through, but he left open the possibility that his son's state of mind could have played a role.
"Obviously, somebody who goes and kills nine people has to have some kind of issue. Whatever it is, let the police determine what they find," he said.

I would bet my life , that neither of my sons , if they had 10 times that many guns at their disposal would shoot anyone.
And if they did I would take my share of the responsibility.
But I did more than just donate sperm, I raised them.

We've grown into a country of whiners and victims, we need more people like you and that mother who finds her son at a Ferguson riot and slaps the crap out of him

"...if Chris had not been able to get hold of 13 guns, this wouldn't have happened,' the father said."

If you had been a decent responsibly father, this wouldn't have happened!!

If the old man had used a condom it wouldn’t have happened either.

One of the greatest fears politicians have is seeing an angry guy with lots of guns charging down the street, because they know he’s probably on his way to commit an act of voting.
