    A Freedom of Information Act request by the Baltimore Post reveals that former Obama White House officials discussed how best to exploit the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack for gun control before the victims of said attack were even buried. The strategizing took place between Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Chicago Mayor, former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel (D). The Post published an email thread shared by Duncan and Emanuel on December 16, 2012: At 6:57PM EST on December 16, 2012, Duncan wrote to Emanuel in a message titled “CT shootings.” Duncan asked the Chicago mayor,...

    When tragedy struck a Newtown, Connecticut community five and a half years ago, an unimaginable nightmare unfolded while the country looked on in horror. During a roughly 10 minute period, the native Chicagoans exchanged seven messages two days following the massacre, in which Mayor Emanuel, who had previously served as President Barrack Obama’s chief of staff, advised Secretary Duncan on what position he should take on the Sandy Hook shootings. At 6:57PM EST on December 16, 2012, Duncan wrote to Emanuel in a message titled “CT shootings.” Duncan asked the Chicago mayor, “What are your thoughts?” Five minutes later, Emanuel...

    The families who lost their children in the Sandy Hook mass shooting are furious after Donald Trump hosted an NRA top exec at the White House on the massacre's fifth anniversary. Nicole Hockley's son Dylan, 6, was among the 20 children and six members of staff killed in December 2012, when Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. Hockley later became one of the founding members of the Sandy Hook Promise, a group advocating for gun control and mental health programs 'so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child.'

    Adam Lanza expressed his desire to commit the Sandy Hook massacre years before the tragedy took place — and when a witness alerted police, the cops said there was nothing they could do. The Sandy Hook shooter told an unidentified male in 2008 that he had access to assault weapons and planned to kill students at the elementary school along with his mother, Nancy Lanza, according to FBI documents released this week. The revelation was first reported by the New York Times on Thursday. The witness — whose name has been redacted from the files — told feds that he...

    The FBI released more than 1,500 pages of heavily-redacted documents Tuesday related to the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting the files shedding light on the relationship between gunman Adam Lanza and his mother prior to the deadly massacre. The documents, posted on the federal agency’s archive page, on the rampage in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead, include redacted grand jury subpoenas and reports by agents who interviewed people about Lanza. In one interview, an unidentified person told an FBI agent that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, was concerned about him a month before the shooting because he...

    This was not how it was supposed to be. The most hated man in American media has dealt a serious and potentially knockout blow to the career of the woman who thought she was all set to take him on and proceed unimpeded on the fast track to maybe becoming the next Oprah. The battle pitting the two well-known personalities commenced two weeks ago when Megyn Kelly, the golden girl of 21st century TV infotainment, started pursuing controversial talk show host and Infowars founder Alex Jones as the next big interview “get” for her new prime time NBC television network...

    Attorney Josh Koskoff Judge Barbara Bellis struck down the lawsuit filed by attorney Josh Koskoff, representing some of the families of the victims of Adam Lanza's attack at the Sand Hook School in Connecticut. The lawsuit was fired against gun manufacturers. The Judge cited the PLCAA, Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, that forbids lawsuits of gun manufacturers, distributors, or sellers of lawful products that operate as they are designed to. The purposes of the PLCAA are to expressly to prevent this sort of lawsuit, so as to insure that citizens shall have access to such firearms. From...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut judge has dismissed a lawsuit by Newtown families against the maker of the rifle used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, saying federal law shields gun manufacturers from most lawsuits over criminal use of their products. Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis on Friday granted a motion by Madison, North Carolina-based Remington Arms to strike the lawsuit by the families of nine children and adults killed and a teacher who survived the 2012 attack. A gunman killed 20 children and six adults at the school with an AR-15-style rifle.

    This report refers to Shannon Watts as one in a group of “regular people” who began advocating for stricter gun control measures in recent years. After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the “One Million Moms for Gun Control” Facebook page. It later became “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

    Calling for more gun control in the wake of mass shootings has become the norm for the president, politicians, and pundits alike—and Orlando has been no different. This time, however, a more surprising face has joined the bandwagon: Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson. “Yes, the Orlando massacre was terror,” she said, “But there’s no doubt that Omar Mateen was able to kill so many people because he was firing an AR-15, a military style assault weapon, a weapon easier to buy in the state of Florida than buying a handgun.” Let’s break for a moment here to point out that right...
