It Had Nothing to Do With Being Insane

…or possibly shitty parenting, or any combination of the two, right? And it’s a well known fact that of crazy homicidal people can’t GET guns, they’ll never kill anyone.

Ian Mercer, Oregon shooter’s dad: ‘That’s what guns are, the killers’

The father of Oregon gunman Christopher Harper-Mercer argued Saturday that his son never would have killed nine people last week at Umpqua Community College if he wasn’t able to get his hands on a gun in the first place.

“How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?” Ian Mercer asked in an interview outside his California home Saturday, CNN reported.

    I get the feeling that the entire Mercer family has spent time in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, perhaps during conception. On the other hand, I’m sure the father is full of grief and guilt and is simply trying to rationalize the pure evil of his offspring. I do have a level of sympathy for him, although I hope he realizes that its now time to STFU about it.

    Unfortunately, the father doesn’t seem to understand that his offspring would not have been able to get a gun had he been committed to the asylum where he belonged.
