Oregon Shooter’s Father Says This Could Have Prevented His Son’s Rampage

The father of the 26-year-old who went on a shooting rampage at an Oregon community college apologized to the families of the victims Saturday as well as called for stricter gun control. Ian Mercer told CNN’s Ryan Young that his son, 26-year-old Chris Harper-Mercer, “will always be remembered for what he did on Thursday.” Mercer said he had “no idea” that his son owned any guns and thought the question of how he obtained them needed to be asked. “You know, they talk about gun laws, they talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens, they talk about it, and nothing is done,” Mercer said. “I’m not trying to say that that’s to blame for what happened, but if Chris had not been able to get ahold of 13 guns, it wouldn’t have happened.”
