LOS ANGELES (AP/CIRCA) – The mother of California bar shooting victim Telemachus Orfanos is demanding gun control, after 12 people and the gunman were killed Wednesdsay night.

"Here are my words: I want gun control," his mother, Susan Schmidt-Orfanos said, her voice shaking with grief and rage after learning her son was killed. "I don't want prayers. I don't want thoughts."

She said wants Congress to "pass gun control so no one else has a child that doesn't come home."

Telemachus Orfanos, 27, was a U.S. Navy veteran with a thick beard, an easy smile and a gladiator helmet tattoo. His friends called him "Tel."

The Washington Post reports Orfanos had survived the nation's deadliest mass shooting in Las Vegas last year.
