Richard Martinez, whose son Christopher Michael-Martinez was killed in a delicatessen by Rodger, says in an interview that he holds politicians and gun-rights advocates responsible for the death of his son:
When will this insanity stop? … Too many have died. We should say to ourselves ‘not one more.’ … Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights, what about Chris’ right to live? When will this insanity stop?
