Hero of Sandy Hook Being Harrassed by Conspiracy Theorists

Wow. A lot of conspiracy theories pop up around tragedies. But few of them are as ridiculous, as pointless, as stupid as the Sandy Hook "conspiracy." They actually think the massacre was staged so that Democrats--President Obama particularly--could pass gun control laws. It's brilliant really.

What is the going rate for getting involved in a gov’t sponsored hoax anyway? . .”
