It’s started, and took less than 24 hours. The parents of “suspect” Elliot Rodger, who is believed to have murdered 6 and injured several more people in Isla Vista, California, are blaming guns for their son’s crime. A.W.R Hawkins writes in Breitbart:

According to the Post and Courier, attorney Alan Shifman spoke on behalf of the family, saying: “My client’s mission in life will be to try to prevent any such tragedies from happening again.

Shifman also said the Rodger family is “staunchly against guns” and “supports gun-control laws.”
