“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights. What about Chris’s right to live?” the father passionately continued. “When will this insanity stop? When will enough people say, ‘Stop this madness!’ We don’t have to live like this! Too many have died. We should say to ourselves, ‘Not one more!’”
No. Chris Martinez died because he was in a gun free zone, deprived of his natural right to defend himself by craven Liberals, where a known and dangerous psychopath knew he could inflict as much as harm as possible on unarmed victims.
Ironically, Richard Martinez is such an useful idiot he nullifies his attack on gun rights in the same paragraph by mentioning a right to live. If a person has a right to live, then he must have the right to defend his life, otherwise it's not a right. And if an attacker has the potential to use a firearm, that person also has the inherent right to use a firearm to balance the level of force used against him.
And no, more gun control is not the answer. California already has some of the strictest state-level gun control in the nation. Did it prevent the murder of seven people? Three of whom were murdered with a knife and not a gun? If any of these victims, or bystanders, had a gun, could they have stopped this? The bad person was ultimately stopped by a gun--after the police finally caught up to him.
But the useful idiots demand that we give up our ability to protect ourselves none-the-less. The murderer also came from a Liberal anti-gun family. That family would have us disarmed while they raised a narcissistic psychopath in a Godless amoral home?!? They raised this little monster to believe that people are just things that he, being an intellectually elite Liberal, should be able to control. If there's any doubt of the ideas running through the monster's head, read the manifesto. The icing on this crap-cake is that the British-born family patriarch made his fortune in Hollywood, promoting a culture and glorification of violence. All while being "staunchly anti-gun." Yep.
Oh, but we don't need guns because we have the police! Riiiiiight. THE POLICE WERE CALLED to investigate the little monster three weeks ago! They have had three contacts with him over the last year. They did nothing even after seeing his videos! And bear no responsibility because, as the courts have found multiple times, the police have no duty to protect.
Okay so maybe we need more mental health funding, right? I mean, it's our fault for not wanting to pay more to care for these little monsters, right? There has to be some collective responsibility here in the village, right? Nope. Almost all of these little monsters come from well-to-do Liberal households with plenty of economic resources (I believe Liberals call that white privilege now?) and access to health care. Columbine, Aurora, Sandy Hook, Arapahoe High (this last year), and now Santa Barbara. All of these mass-murders committed by wealthy white Liberals. We'll have to wait to see if this little monster was on SSRIs like the others.
I have a lot of sympathy for anyone that loses a loved one to senseless violence. But Richard Martinez gets no sympathy from me. He is using this tragedy to make sure that more people will be murdered like disarmed prey when the next privileged Liberal, who comes from a staunchly anti-gun family, decides to do the unthinkable. That is the legacy Mr. Martinez has just assigned to his son: The certainty that more innocent people will be murdered because of gun control.
If Richard Martinez wants someone to blame, he should blame himself. It's his own ideas that got his son murdered.
