Father Objects to Gun - Son Kills Him with It

A 35-year-old Huntington Beach man was charged Monday in the shooting death of his father as the two were arguing over whether the son could keep the firearm in the home they were sharing.

Jeremy Dwayne Martin was charged with murder in the death Friday of 62-year-old Frederick Martin, the Orange County district attorney's office said. He is being held in lieu of $1-million bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

Frederick Martin called Huntington Beach police when an argument over the gun Jeremy Martin was keeping in the house turned into a scuffle as the father tried to take the gun away. Police left after Jeremy Martin refused to speak with the officers.

After the officers left, the two began arguing again, as Frederick Martin did not want the gun in his home. Jeremy Martin allegedly fired the gun, striking his father once. He died at the scene.
Obviously this is another of the super-rare incidents of a legitimate gun owner committing murder with his lawfully-owned gun. At least this guy knows the STFU rule when questioned by the police. The Armed Intelligentsia will be proud. You see, they stand behind certain murderers, dispensing advice to them on how to beat the rap. They don't try to help the black ghetto kids with criminal records too much. They focus on the white murderers with no criminal past.

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. "They don't try to help the black ghetto kids with criminal records too much"

    The black ghetto kids don't need any help. They pioneered the "Stop Snitching" campaign.

  2. Guess dad gives new meaning to the term 'dead right', and sonny boy gives new meaning to the term dangerous right.

  3. The difference is RedAz that bad white guys from the suburbs tend to have pretty good access to legal representation to get them out of trouble.

    The black ghetto kids have far more assumptions about them in place, even if they aren't bad kids. And they usually have to rely on public defenders who are underpaid and overworked.

    I don't like the stop snitching campaign. I believe that we all need to provide any help we can to the authorities to keep our communities free of crime and to promote justice, and that is probably more true of areas of poverty (regardless of ethnic composition) than elsewhere.

    I can point to plenty of white suburban areas where the same not snitching has applied. Most recently we had cover ups going for a man who drove a car into a group of students near the U of MN to deliberately hurt/kill them because he had endured some minor slight. It turned out not even to be the people he was angry at that he drove over.

    Plenty of stop snitching went on until finally someone did tell, after it was all over the media and there was a great deal of public outcry about it. The 'no snitching' campaign and cover up began with white suburban mom.

    So dial back the stereotypes RedAz; it is a problem far beyond black ghetto kids.

    Any way you try to spin it, you are too willing to condone and excuse gun violence, including that done with a presumably legal gun.

  4. Really takes a sick individual to shoot his own father. Gives new meaning to the old favorite, "You can pry it out of my cold, dead hands."

  5. The story is almost an archetype. When confronted with someone trying to TAKE AWAY YOUR GUN, you shoot him with it.
