Father of Oregon Killer Blames GUNS, Not Son, For Umpqua Massacre

“I’m not trying to say that they’re to blame for what happened. But if Chris had not been able to get hold of 13 guns it wouldn’t have happened.”

CNN just interviewed the father of the murderer of nine people at Umpqua Community College this week, and though he claims he is not blaming guns, he spent most of the interview doing that exact thing.

“That’s what guns are. The killers. It’s as simple as that. It’s black and white,” he says. Guns are the killers. Not his son.



To repeat, the man who is the parent of the murderer is blaming gov’t for not preventing his child from becoming a murderer.

“They talk about gun laws, they talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens they talk about it and nothing is done,” said Ian Mercer.

“Look all over the world, you don’t see these kind of mass shootings all over the world on a consistent basis like you do in the United States,” he added.

“I’m a great believer, you don’t buy guns. Don’t buy guns. Don’t buy guns.”

Another idea might be don’t raise a mass murdering monster.
