Preaching Gun Control on the Corpse of His Son

Rampage in college town began with stabbings | News – KEYT

Richard Martinez, father of Christopher Martinez, said to reporters. “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?”

You mean when will guns be effectively banned in private hands?  When we become the authoritarian dictatorship progressives seem to lust for.

Too bad young Christopher hadn’t exercised his own right to keep and bear arms.  He might then have been able to effectively resist the attacker who killed him.

Yes, I realize the title of this post is “insensitive.”  But I’m not the one who lashed out at the NRA, all gun owners, and the rights guaranteed by our Constitution as soon as I learned my son had been murdered.

Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Perhaps if that worth sperm-donorand the equally worthless receptor had paid a little attention to his offspring,instead of turning him over to a succession of nannies and shrink/pill-peddlers, the little narcistic sociopath(gee, who else do we know who fits THAT description?) might have turned out a little more normal.
    OTOH at least he won’t be elected president…
