Christopher Martinez died because of the NRA

Victim of Elliot Rodger mass murder.
Just saw on CNN a spokesman for the family of Christopher Martinez really laid into the NRA. Called them out by name.
And the politicians who are in the pocket of the NRA.
Powerful press conference. I can't find a link to it right now.

5. And all its defenders, whether on discussion boards, or the halls of Congress

 

But nothing will change, and the guns will flow...

9. His father. Heartbreaking

And so true. The NRA will chew this poor grieving man up for speaking the truth. My heart breaks for him.

12. Cue the crazy.

Alarm bells are going off for emergency actions by the NRA PR Department...and then the TeaPukers will begin attacking the father...and then psychos in Congress will push for more guns and even less regulation.

It's all become very sick.

14. Spoons, cars, too bad people weren't armed

The standard BS arguments.

And of course attacking the victims father. That goes without saying.

Disgusting individuals.

If I believed in Hell, I would know that's where they're going.
