In his statement about the death of his son, Richard Martinez said: “Our family has a message for every parent out there. You don’t think it will happen to your child until it does.
“Chris was a really great kid. Ask anyone who knew him. His death has left our family lost and broken.
“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA.
Not to mention all the other people murdered. It’s not complicated: private ownership of semi-automatic weapons, among other firearms, should be prohibited.
