This is Memorial Day weekend, a time when we pause to pay our respects to veterans who gave their all, made the ultimate sacrifice, laying down their lives in the service of our nation whether standing guard over our freedom or striving to liberate others, we have to think about . People like Richard Martinez, the father of 20-year-old Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez who was killed in a madman’s rampage last week in Santa Barbara spewed this nonsense a few nights ago: We all heard him say “Why did Chris die? When will enough people say, ‘Stop this madness.’ We do not have to live like this. Too many people have died. We should say to ourselves, ‘not one more.’”
Really Mr. Martinez? THAT’S how you see it??? Sorry, but I don’t see it that way at all. I blame the Liberal Moonbats.
I’m very sorry to have to say this, but you sir are a fool .If someone is hell bent on killing others, they will always find a way to do it.
According to this liberal, gun free zone, anti 2nd Amendment father, his son was killed,” because of craven, irresponsible politicians and NOT the NRA…”
Chris died because of bunch of, bleeding heart Liberals, and NOT the NRA…
NO, your son was not killed by the NRA nor by politicians who, as you assert, are so craven as to stand with the 2nd Amendment. YOUR son was killed by a liberal entitlement demanding madman…one Elliot Rodger…but you just can’t bring yourself to admit that the fault…the ultimate fault lies with someone, a shooter who shared your basic political philosophy, can you?
Mr. Martinez, like so many other liberals, foolishly believes that MORE GUN LAWS would have kept his son alive. Martinez is but further proof that Reagan was spot on when he said…
The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”
Richard Martinez is exploiting the murder of his own son to air his political viewpoint in the hopes that liberalism will win the day.
The law ABIDING people of Santa Barbara county have the legal right to carry guns. It’s the madmen like Elliott Roger who have committed his murder spree! No one could have stopped Elliott Roger, NO ONE at all.
Richard Martinez’s son was murdered because Elliott Roger, a madman, was hell bent on committing murder.
The gun he used didn’t drive itself to that place that night. It didn’t aim itself. It didn’t pull its own trigger either. In fact, the gun wasn’t even Elliott Roger’s fist weapon used to commit the series of murders.
And how about that knife? The knife that Elliot Roger stabbed those others to death Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and Weihan Wang, 20 in his own apartment before picking up a gun and continuing his string of murders but Richard Martinez dismisses those killings to the point that he didn’t even mention them during his 45 minute address to the press.
Knives don’t fit the liberal agenda.
This liberal idiot, Elliott Roger was hell bent on murder NOT because he had a GUN…only his last three victims were shot…the first three were stabbed to death…but because he felt he was ENTITLED to get laid. He wrote a manifesto and posted 22 You Tube videos expressing his intentions to commit mass murder because girls had turned him down and had instead, dated other boys.
Roger was hell bent on murder because he was, at 22 years of age, still a virgin but we don’t hear Richard Martinez advocating for government mandated sex for any boy over the age of 18 do we? Mr. Martinez…the people who were wounded and the ones who died, including your own son, didn’t need the protection OF your liberal ideology …obviously, they needed to be protected FROM it.
So let me see if I get this correctly…
Martinez makes this political and Martinez poses the questions: “Why did Chris die? And the hard facts are because of the leftist nutjobs and the Obama administration , look what they did to this poor Martinez man in Santa Barbara California, the most leftist state in this union. They took his son from him. nobody could stop this nutjob, until he finally did it himself. The blind like Noble Experiment who vote for all of this are just as guilty for allowing this to happen. They vote for these policies and they vote for the politicians that only allowed 53 people out of 337,000 to have a LEGAL concealed permit. How dumb do you have to be.
