The Umpqua Community College Shooter’s Father Should be Blamed

Ian Mercer Should Take the Blame for the Umpqua Killings


Chris Harper-Mercer’s father, Ian, blames the killings at Umpqua Community College on guns. What kind of father is he that he had no idea that his deranged son had thirteen guns?

Chris killed nine people and his dad takes no responsibility for Chris’s upbringing and blames it on the tools—the guns—rather than the mentally sick intent of his monstrous son.


His dad keeps trying to pass the buck, “We talk about gun laws. We talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens, they talk about it and nothing gets done. I’m not trying to say that that’s to blame for what happened, but if Chris had not been able to get hold of 13 guns, this wouldn’t have happened.”


And this wouldn’t have happened either if Chris was brought up in a normal household where he was taught love, not anger and hatred of Christians.


Ian claims that guns are killers.  He doesn’t shout that his failed fatherhood was the impetus to kill and the gun was merely a device.


And what about the stupidity of liberals in progressive Oregon making Umpqua Community College a gun free one?


Perhaps a guard with a gun could have stopped all this carnage.  Perhaps, not.  But it sure was better than letting the liberals lead all the lambs to the slaughter.
