Oregon Shooter’s Father Blames Guns

In a recent, CNN article, the father of the accused shooter stated, “That’s what guns are, the killers.” He refused to comment on his son’s mental state. Here is the article, for your review.

No Mr. Mercer, guns are not to blame. YOUR SON IS. Your son chose to take objects and used them to hurt other people. Guns did not do that; guns made no decisions. Your son did. Guns sit in my gun safe, and guns sit in thousands of gun safes over the country without hurting anyone. Your son did. Your son killed those people.

I don’t know what possesses someone to kill other people for no reason.

I can’t imagine what you are going through. I have a 14 year old son, and I can’t imagine how it must be for you to know that your son caused so much grief.

Your recovery will never occur as long as you are refusing to accept what is so, and are continuing to blame other people.

Thank you for reading this post.
