Of course this is who he would blame

Martinez’s father, Richard, said some politicians and the National Rifle Association are also to blame for his son’s death.
“Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA,” he said. “They talk about gun rights, what about Chris’ right to live? When will this insanity stop?”
Rodger suffered from an undisclosed mental health issue, and was under the care of a variety of health care professionals, Brown said.
But there was no indication he had been committed to a mental health facility.
Rodger passed the background check needed to buy the firearm used in the shooting, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told CNN. The official said nothing had been found in the gun trace to indicate Rodger shouldn’t have qualified to buy a gun.

No, CNN, he said that politicians and the NRA were solely to blame.

What about parents taking some responsibility for actually raising their children? What about making sure that your son, who you knew, knew, to be very mentally disturbed was put in an institution or at the very least was officially placed under some type of care so that the laws might actually have a chance to work?

What about the rights of the six people YOUR CHILD slaughtered? What about the insanity of denying them the right to defend themselves?

What about looking in the mirror?

    Seems like there is a propensity to blame others for criminal behavior in the Rodgers family.

    I’m assuming Food Network and Iron Chef are responsible for the first three victims, who were horribly STABBED TO DEATH. I guess he had to get those mad knife skills from somewhere.

    These days, the mantra is, “It’s all about me!”

    From what I can tell, they did try to get him help… but these days it’s almost impossible to get someone involuntarily committed. I think that is the real problem here. If somebody is “off” but smart enough to keep a low profile, as this guy clearly was, there is almost nothing you can do until he/she declares himself and starts killing or injuring others. I certainly wouldn’t blame the NRA for this.

    Also, I heard the audio feed of Martinez’ father. The man was clearly in agony and lashing out, and I don’t blame him for that.

    By his logic – and I can’t hold Martinez completely responsible for his words under the circumstances – YouTube & BMW are also at fault.

  7. JeffS says:

    Yes, Martinez is in agony, and I empathize with him. But I am bracing myself for yet another assault on Constitutional rights, using barely-cooled corpses and emotionally distraught family members as the breaching charge.

    That’s what the left does so well.
