On May 24, the family of Santa Barbara shooting suspect Elliot Rodger released a statement through their attorney saying they are “against guns” and support gun control.
On May 23, their son allegedly shot and killed 7 people, including himself, and wounded 7 others. Breitbart News reported his motive was “retribution” for women who had rejected his advances.
Elliot was the son of Peter Rodger, one of the assistant directors of Hollywood’s The Hunger Games.
They’re lying, of course. California has one of the strictest gun control regimens in America – so strict, in fact, that some of it is likely to be judged unconstitutional when it reaches the Supreme Court.
What they really want is not “control,” of course, but the sort of strict ban and confiscation legislation favored by all authoritarian police states for the past hundred years.
