The children who were victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre

(1) Caroline Previdi

Caroline Previdi was one of the 20 young children killed in the massacre that left the town of Newtown, Conn. grieving. 

(2) James Mattioli

James Mattioli, 6, was another one of the young victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Fondly called “J” for short, the energetic young boy loved math, sports and cuddling on the couch with his mom at the end of the day.

(3) Daniel Barden

Daniel Barden, 7, was another of the victims. His father Mark is a musician, and he and his family wrote the following words in memorial of their son: “Everyone who has ever met Daniel remembers and loves him. Words really cannot express what a special boy Daniel was. Such a light. Always smiling, unfailingly polite, incredibly affectionate, fair and so thoughtful towards others, imaginative in play, both intelligent and articulate in conversation: in all, a constant source of laughter and joy. Daniel was fearless in his pursuit of happiness and life. He earned his ripped jeans and missing two front teeth. Despite that, he was, as his mother said, ‘Just So Good.’ He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world. Our hearts break over losing him and for the many other families suffering loss.”

Am I the only one who keeps wondering if maybe the LV shooting will actually result in change because - going off what I know of people who love Country music - odds are the majority of the victims are cis, straight, Christian white people in a swing state? It’s not Pulse, a gay night club. It’s not Sandy Hook, with the victims non-voting kids in a blue state. 

People died that Republicans actually give a shit about. 

(again: I’m assuming, based both on the photographs I’ve seen and by the “standard” demographic for listening to country music…like I’ve yet to see a single picture that wasn’t dominated by young white people…)

That might count for something, right?

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting conspiracy theories

On December 14, 2012, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred. The perpetrator, Adam Lanza, fatally shot his mother before murdering 20 students and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and later committing suicide. A number of fringe figures have promoted conspiracy theories that doubt or dispute what occurred at Sandy Hook. Various conspiracy theorists have claimed, for example, that the massacre was actually orchestrated by the U.S. Government as part of an elaborate plot to promote stricter gun control laws. Other conspiracy theorists, such as Alex Jones, have denied that the massacre actually occurred, asserting that it was “completely fake." 

No evidence supports these conspiracy theories, which make a number of implausible claims. Moreover, many Sandy Hook conspiracy theories contradict one another. A number of sources have published articles debunking various claims put forward by conspiracy theorists. 

Conspiracy claims: 

United States government involvement: Some conspiracy theories have alleged that the shooting was a hoax and a false flag operation staged by the United States government. Others claim the attack is being used by politicians to push through new gun control legislation, or to otherwise persecute gun owners and survivalists. 

Lawyer and dentist Orly Taitz - best known for her promotion of Barack Obama citizenship ("birther”) conspiracy theories - was quoted as asking “Was Adam Lanza drugged and hypnotized by his handlers to make him into a killing machine as an excuse as the regime is itching to take all means of self defense from the populace before the economic collapse?" 

Talk show host Clyde Lewis wrote: "Don’t you find it at all interesting that Adam Lanza, the alleged shooter at Sandy Hook, woke up one day and decided to shoot up a school and kill children at about the same time that Barack Obama told the U.N. that he would sign the small arms treaty?" 

According to Live Science, "No one, regardless of what side of the gun control issue they are on, can deny that guns played a key role in the Sandy Hook killings. So the conspiracy theorists must instead challenge the claim that the attack even occurred. They believe it’s all a hoax to scare people into supporting more gun control and a step toward an outright repeal of the Second Amendment.” They also found that the vast majority of evidence used by conspiracy theorists to support the concept that Sandy Hook was a hoax is contradictory. Snopes.com also debunked several claims of alleged United States government involvement in the shootings. 

Claims broadcast by Iranian television: Press TV, the official state media outlet of Iran, has promoted various antisemitic conspiracy theories blaming “Israeli death squads” for the shooting. Press TV interviewed Veterans Today website Gordon Duff, who quoted Michael Harris, a former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, who made the “Israeli death squads” claim. Harris has publicly associated with neo-Nazi groups in the past and has previously claimed that Israel was responsible for the 2011 Norway attacks. Duff asserted that the attacks were an act of “revenge” for the perceived cooling of Israel-United States relations under President Obama, especially as a response to Obama’s decision to nominate former senator Chuck Hagel, a perceived critic of Israel, for the position of United States Secretary of Defense. In another broadcast by Press TV, Holocaust denier James H. Fetzer claimed that the massacre “appears to have been a psy op intended to strike fear in the hearts of Americans” that was conducted by “agents of Israel." 

The Washington Post reported that claims broadcast on Press TV contain a large number of "obvious logical fallacies” typical of Iranian propaganda, which “has a well-earned reputation for incendiary anti-Israel stories and for wild conspiracy theories.” The Atlantic wrote that the story “obviously plays on the worst fears of those who believe in secret Jewish cabals that run the world, but it’s a pretty pathetic attempt at slander, even for Iran." 

Additional conspirators: Ben Swann, a Cincinnati news anchor for Fox affiliate WXIX-TV, has suggested on his personal YouTube channel that Adam Lanza was accompanied by another shooter; he has made similar claims about the Aurora shooting and the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting from earlier in 2012. Other conspiracy theorists have claimed that as many as four shooters were present. 

There is no credible evidence that any additional shooters were present at the event. Some such reports may have been influenced by confused early news reports of the events. 

Relationship to LIBOR scandal: Other conspiracy theories have focused on the claim that Adam Lanza’s father was an executive with GE Energy Financial Services. According to these theories, Lanza’s father was supposed to testify before the Senate Banking Committee with information about the Libor scandal. However, no search hearings were scheduled. Similar claims had been made about the father of James Holmes, the convicted perpetrator of the 2012 Aurora shooting. 

Timestamps of memorial sites: Conspiracy theories have claimed that various timestamps for creation dates, whois records, and Google caches of various memorial websites, fundraising sites, and Facebook were created before or immediately after the date and time of the shooting and are therefore "evidence” of a conspiracy or cover up. However, timestamps are frequently incorrect, particularly on search engines. Some timestamps are initially created and assigned to URLs that are then re-purposed, meaning that a URL linked to a current event can have a much older date. 

Alex Jones claims: In September 2014, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who runs the website InfoWars, which had previously claimed that the murders were a “false flag” attack perpetrated by the government, made a new conspiracy claim: that “no one died” at Sandy Hook Elementary School because the Uniform Crime Reports showed no murders in Newtown for 2012, and that the victims were “child actors.” This claim is false and misrepresents the FBI report. In reality, because the Connecticut State Police was the lead investigator after the attack, the Sandy Hook victims were included in Connecticut’s statewide records (under “State Police Misc.”) rather than under the Newtown statistics. 

James Tracy: James Tracy, a former professor at Florida Atlantic University who taught a course on conspiracy theories, has suggested the shooting either did not actually occur or occurred very differently than accounted in mainstream reports, claiming political motives for the cover up. His allegations were strongly criticized by Patricia Llodra, a Newtown select woman. Additionally, Florida Atlantic president Mary Jane Saunders issued a statement that Tracy’s views were “not shared by” the university. In response to his comments, the university opened an investigation of Tracy, who had tenure. 

In December 2015, after the family of Noah Pozner claimed that Tracy had harassed them, FAU moved to fire Tracy. Chan Lowe of the Sun-Sentinel speculated that the comments were a publicity stunt by Tracy. Tracy later declined an appearance on CNN with Anderson Cooper, suggesting that Cooper wanted to bring him and his family members harm by identifying him in a prior broadcast. The university fired Tracy on January 5, 2016, citing his refusal to file required paperwork related to outside employment for several years. 

While Tracy has since withdrawn some of his suggestions, conceding that real deaths occurred in the shooting, other sources have continued to claim that the entire event was a hoax. A video similarly questioning official accounts of the shooting received several million views on YouTube within a week of its posting, although the video has since been modified to display a disclaimer explaining that its creators “in no way claim this shooting never took place, or that people did not lose their lives." 

Other conspiracy theorists and claims: On September 12, 2014, during a political debate, Colorado Republican Party candidate Tom Ready (who was running for Pueblo County Commission) was accused by his opponent, Sal Pace, of posting an article on his Facebook page claiming the Sandy Hook shootings "never happened”. Ready responded: “Well, there is some question of whether it happened, Sal.” This was followed by more statements of the same tenor, prompting outraged yells from the audience. After allegedly receiving a death threat the next day, Ready reportedly apologized for his remarks. 

Other conspiracy theorists have tried to connect the shooting to references in popular culture. Suzanne Collins, the author who lived in the Sandy Hook section of Newtown, Connecticut wrote The Hunger Games and in The Hunger Games 22 children are “ritualistically” killed, and 20 children were killed in the shooting, and “Sandy Hook” can be seen on a map in The Dark Knight Rises. This is what some conspiracy theorists refer to as predictive programming.
Several conspiracy theorists have also claimed a six-year-old victim of the shooting subsequently appeared in a photograph with President Barack Obama. In fact, the child in the photograph is the victim’s sister, wearing her deceased sister’s dress. 

Analysis: Writing about the Sandy Hook conspiracy theories, Benjamin Radford argued that most conspiracy theorists who allege contradictions in official accounts ignore contradictions in their own accounts, citing research from the University of Kent that conspiracy theorists selectively focus on or ignore particular details in order to fit their preferred narrative. The conspiracy theories have also been called evidence of “the need for a national debate on mental illness." 

The debunking website Snopes ran an editorial debunking the "Sandy Hook Exposed” video, explaining how many of the theories make little sense, and answered many questions conspiracy theorists wanted answers to.

Harassment by conspiracy theorists: Gene Rosen, a Newtown resident who was reported to have sheltered six Sandy Hook students and a bus driver in his home during the shooting, has been subject to harassment online alleging he has complicit in a government cover up, among other things. Some journalists have cited such incidents as part of a “Sandy Hook Truther Movement” analogous to the 9/11 Truth movement. A writer for the Calgary Herald reported that the movement self-identities as “Operation Terror.” 

In May 2014, 28-year-old Andrew David Truelove stole a memorial sign from playgrounds dedicated to victims Grace McDonnell and Chase Kowalski. He then went on to call the parents of Grace McDonnell, proclaiming that he stole the sign and that he believed their deaths were a “hoax”. He was eventually arrested on May 30, where the signs were found in his home. Truelove was eventually convicted of the theft and sentenced to 12 months in prison. 

Robbie Parker, the father of victim Emilie Parker - after doing a CNN interview on the day after the shooting - became the target of conspiracy theorists, who claimed the interview was staged. Parker has been attacked by theorists who believe he is a “crisis actor” and was “getting into character” before going on CNN to grieve over the loss of his child. 

In April 2016, Matthew Mills, a 32-year-old man from Brooklyn, accepted a plea agreement with prosecutors on one count of interfering with police arising from an incident in November 2015, when Mills angrily approached the sister of murdered teacher Victoria Soto - who is regarded as a heroine for her attempt to protect her students from the shooter in the Sandy Hook attack - shoved a photograph in her face, “and began angrily charging that not only did the Sandy Hook tragedy not take place, but that Victoria Soto never existed.” Mills entered an Alford plea and was thus found guilty; he was given a suspended sentence of one year in jail and two years’ probation. 

In December 2016, Lucy Richards, a 57-year-old woman from Tampa, was charged with four counts of transmitting threats in interstate commerce for sending death threats to Lenny Pozner, whose son Noah was the youngest of 20 children murdered. Pozner has been particularly targeted by internet trolls and conspiracy theorists because he was vocally fought back against them. Richards had been expected to plead guilty to one count of transmitting threats, with both the prosecution and defense to recommend a sentence of probation and house arrest. However, in March 2017, Richards - who was free on bond - failed to show up to court for a change-of-plea hearing and sentencing. An arrest warrant was issued, Richards’ bond was revoked, and she was soon apprehended. On June 7, 2017, Richards was sentenced to five months’ imprisonment. 

Lenny Pozner, the father of Sandy Hook victim Noah Pozner, founded an organization called HONR, which takes legal action against harassers of Sandy Hook survivors and families.

I Have Spent Over A Year Lurking In The Columbine Tag And Related Fandoms-Here's What I Saw

1: Insults aimed at a fifteen-year-old child who took her own life.

2: Jokes made at the expense of Craig Scott.

3: A pair of girls visiting the site of the Sandy Hook shooting, in the middle of the night, without proper authorisation, and taking selfies there.

4: More jokes, made about the victims of Sandy Hook.

5: Endless protestations that Eric and Dylan were victims too.

6: Harassment of Dave Cullen on Twitter, whose only crime was to write a book which didn’t paint the shooters in a forgiving or positive light.

#7: Making light of an incident in which Brooks Brown, a former friend of the killers, propositioned an underage girl on this very website.

8: Memes made about the Colorado theatre shooting, e.g. THE PEOPLE IN COLORADO PAID FOR A FULL MOVIE, BUT THEY ONLY GOT A FEW CLIPS.

9: Rampant cyberbullying, allegedly perpetuated by a woman married with children, directed at a schoolgirl.

10: A toxic general online environment, where suicide is, at best, treated as a viable option.

11: A fanfiction wherein Eric Harris molests a ten-year-old James Holmes. (It also had a sequel.)

11b: A fanfiction wherein Eric Harris rapes his grandfather.

11c: A fanfiction in which Harris and Klebold, aged thirteen apiece, participate in distinctly adult foreplay.

11d: A fanfiction in which Eric Harris is raped by an army sergeant.

11e: An online fanvid, made with Sim avatars, in which Dave Cullen is stated to be sleeping with the seventeen-year-old Dylan Klebold.

11f: A fanfiction (which was later find-replaced to remove any Columbine connotations and can be bought on Amazon) which depicts an abusive relationship between Harris and Klebold and tries to pass it off as true love.

12: A woman seen on a community video, holding up her hand to the camera to show the loveheart doodled there and saying, “I’m forty-six….and I love you!” It’s unclear whether she’s addressing Harris (eighteen) or Klebold (seventeen).

13: A real-life incident in which a fully-fledged Columbiner named James Gamble, who took his own life to avoid going through with a Columbine-inspired attack in Nova Scotia.

14: A few Tumblr blogs, which appear to be run by middle-aged women, extolling unhealthy sexual thoughts and feeling towards Harris (eighteen) and Klebold (seventeen).

There will be more. There will always be more. This community is by far the worst that I have ever seen on the surface web. If you need links, please message me and I’ll tell you which blogs to visit.

How could you not support gun control when the parents of the victims of sandy hook still mourn for their children every single day. Could you look the survivors of the movie theater shooting in the eyes and say that you oppose gun control? Honestly, if you feel this way about guns, why stop there? Might as well let anybody have nuclear weapons, right? No one wants to take away your right to own a gun, the goal is to make sure they're in the right hands.

Another gun control advocate standing on the graves of the Sandy Hook victims to bully their way to more meaningless legislation. 

Tell me, which LAW would have stopped that horrible mass shooting so that the gun was in the “right hands” ? 

Gun control has proven to be ineffective. 

Avielle Richman, one of the 27 victims of the Sandy Hook Shooting that occured on December 14th, 2012.

First, her teacher was shot to death, then the children, including Avielle, began running and screaming in the classroom. The gunman proceeded to shoot Avielle and 4 of her young classmates. None of them survived.

16 year old junior Maren Sanchez was stabbed to death by a 16 year old male named Chris Plaskon on Friday morning, 4/25/14, at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, CT. She was supposed to attend her junior prom the same evening. There are no words which can describe such heartfelt loss and tragedy. Another young victim of senseless violence taken much too soon. There are still many raw feelings in the world, the US, and Connecticut in light of the recent school massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Many concerned thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with her family and friends. Their anguish must still be hard to bear..
