Mother who lost son in Thousand Oaks shooting calls for gun control

Telemachus Orfanos saw too much horror.

First, he survived last year’s massacre at a Las Vegas country music festival, where 58 people were slain. He was also at the Borderline Bar and Grill on Wednesday night, when a gunman, dressed in black, killed 12 people.

One of them was Orfanos. He was 27.

“My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends, and he came home. He didn’t come home last night,” his mother, Susan Schmidt-Orfanos, told a local TV reporter. “I don’t want prayers. I don’t want thoughts. I want gun control.”

    We dont have a gun control problem.
    We have a mental illness problem in this country.
    A gun didnt walk into that bar and shoot people.
    The day we address the mental health problems in this country is today this stops.

    Sorry about your loss Mrs. Orfanos but guns are not the problem. Just like alcohol related deaths, drug overdose related deaths. It's the human factor that is flawed. Guns, alcohol, drugs, cars, do not kill. It is usually a combination of the two.

    This is a perfect example of MK ULTRA mind control this guy was probably programmed to kill by Uncle Sam and used to push the gun control agenda. This tactic has been used for hundreds of years kill innocents cause chaos and use propaganda to change policy sad world.

    I know she is angry and in a lot of pain and I feel for her but gun control is not the answer. If somebody would have been there that night and had a gun less people would have died. This is all propaganda. Bad people have guns good people need to have guns to shoot the damn bad people

    Id say the guy had pretty good gun control. He hit what he was aiming at. How much more gun control do you want? Is it above your brain power to realise that guns like everything else can be stolen? Not all gun owners are the legal purchased owners so dont be so stupid and naive to think otherwise. You think all gang members are legal gun owners???🤨 Liberal pieces of shit live in a make believe world. The lady should be busy planning a funeral if she cared of her son.

    Look another shooting and we don't have a mental health crisis in this country.😂😂😂😂 a man stabs infants and still no one publicly states that we have a mental health crisis. And of course the easiest answer is to blame guns. I'm not going to care until people start acknowledging the fact that we have serious problems and stop blaming guns. #GunsDontKillPeople
