As I’m sure you’re already aware, there was a mass shooting in California last night that left several people dead and several others wounded.
It is currently believed that Elliot Rodger, the son of Hunger Games Assistant Director Peter Rodger, committed the act. The Rodger family released a statement saying they believe Elliot was the responsible party.
During the statement, made by the family’s attorney, it was revealed that the family has “no history of guns” (whatever that means) and that they are staunchly anti-gun and support gun control laws.
The attorney also says the family will make it their mission to prevent situations like this from happening in the future. According to Knox News,
The family is not ready to speak publicly yet, the lawyer said, but wants to cooperate fully with police, public agencies and “any other person who feels that they need to help prevent these situations from ever occurring again,” Shifman said.
“My client’s mission in life will be to try to prevent any such tragedies from ever happening again,” he said. “This country, this world, needs to address mental illness and the ramifications from not recognizing these illnesses.”
Shifman said the family is “staunchly against guns” and supports gun-control laws. “They are extremely, extremely upset that anybody was hurt under these circumstances,” he said.
It should be noted that California already has some of the strictest purchase laws for handguns in the country, requiring purchasers to jump through numerous hoops. Residents are only allowed to purchase certain models of approved handguns and magazine capacity is limited to 10 rounds.
