The mother of a victim in the California shooting tragedy — who managed to survive the 2017 massacre in Las Vegas — said she wants gun control and not “thoughts and prayers” after the death of her son.
The grieving mom of Telemachus Orfanos was emotional as she told reporters she wants “no more guns” after the latest mass shooting inside the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks.
“My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends and he came home,” the woman said. “He didn’t come home last night.”
The woman continued: “I don’t want prayers, I don’t want thoughts — I want gun control and I hope to God nobody sends me any more prayers.”
During the Las Vegas shooting in 2017, gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowded country music festival from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay, killing 58 people.
On Wednesday, gunman Ian David Long opened fire inside the Borderline Bar, killing 12 people.
