Did he even shoot anyone? So far I’m hearing that he stabbed 3 of them and at least one was a cyclist he ran down with a car.

His dad is a secular British guy.

I know his mom is hot, but where is she FROM..?

Plenty of butt shots of her, but nothing else.

Is she from this country?

I think the crazy son was GAY.

I guess in their eyes, ff they focus attention on the gun, they don’t have to answer for what their son did.

If Aspergers were considered a condition that would cause an automatic rejection for licensing only four of those people would be dead.

Exactly. The parents of the one who went crazy with a gun want the victims to have their guns controlled so they cannot protect themselves. How much sense does that make. Those people are sickos.

Did they support gun control before or after he purchased his gun?
Do they also support knife control since his tabed to death 3 roommates?

The only thing missing in the statement is “The car wash will be held on May 31st”.

They are scratching for anyone, or anything else to blame but their son. First, you had the excuse of “well, we contacted the police about him, they must not have done their jobs” line of argument. This fails when you consider that the actual threatening video was posted online only on the day of the horrific crimes he committed. Second, the murderer’s family tries mightily to shift blame to the NRA, anti-gun control politicians and anyone else they disagree with politically. The bottom line remains that their son came from the very weird Big Hollywood “culture” and he had talked extensively of watching porn online.

These freakin’ leftists want gun control? California has ‘gun control’. Whey in hell did they not control this insane piece of shit. They knew he was dangerous. Why in hell did they not do something themselves? They spoiled this piece of shit rotten, with BMW etc. Give me a break...

Call me an old fashioned prude, but I think society crossed a line when they allowed a story about kids killing kids (The Hunger Games) to be so glamorized in popular culture. Maybe that sort of unimaginative garbage should be “controlled.”

Ooohhh this stuff makes me boil! Their kid was bats**t crazy. They have money, why didn`t they put him in a private mental facility instead of inflicting him on society? Hell,if you know he`s dangerous build a damn cell and keep him in it, I`m sick of “understanding” mental cases and people who insist they be treated like normal people. Innocent people are dead because people who MAKE crazy people won`t control them. GUNS?? He used a gun to kill people so stop guns? How about they used their genetalia to make a mental case who killed people so I want them castrated and sterilized(after they are sued into living out of a cardboard box poverty-and I`d take that too!) INANIMATE objects can`t kill anyone unless used by humans(or flung by nature) and their mentally DEFECTIVE spawn was an evil murderer THEY inflicted on the world! If anyone I loved were a victim these “parents” would have to hide forever. Oh and the mother is Morrocan so he was likely half Muslim_ which explains everything.

Did he get the gun legally?
If not that's going to put a kink in their gun control ranting.

Well they could have said it was partly their fault for raising someone that thought it was a good idea to kill a bunch of people because he wasn’t handed willing women.

Most likely the result of absent parenting, then bribery of stuff for his attention or decent behavior.

Perhaps they could have spent the money they paid for his car on some mental health treatment.

So, if their precious snookums had mowed down a bunch of innocents by driving his car into a crowd at 90 miles per hour, would they want to outlaw cars?

Hey, I’m in favor of parents being involved in their kids’ lives, staying together, giving them a set of principles, rather than BMWs. How’s that, Mr. Rodger? You might have tried a little of that instead of this BS preaching about gun control as if that would have stopped your weirdo spawn. He didn’t get strange from nowhere.

Hunger Games actually has a lot of old fashioned values in it....a young girl in her teens loving her mother and sister so much that she risks everything, all the time recalling the memory of her dear departed father....if anything, Hunger Games takes a look at gallantry and virtue...

Most of the wounded victims were run over by his BMW.

I understand he was a licensed driver.

And now California is giving licenses to illegal aliens.
