(I barely know who Alex Jones is.)

Jones or somebody associated with him claims there is no video of Adam lanza in the school, that there was another shooter in the first police reports, and that the donation page for united way sandy hook victims was set up a couple days before Newton happened, or so they say. I have seen NO proof for any of this.
Jones also claims some gun rights guy ...a couple of them...have died "musteriously" (1 was in a car crash, i was murdered) since coming out online and listing a bunch of mass killers who were allegedly on antidepressants.

Now, doesnt that sound crazy and paranoid to YOU?

It is not uncommon for folks to give too much credit to government as conspirators. What really happens is the famous Emanuel quote - "Never waste a crisis". That is what is happening - they see momentum and seize the day. All fascists have done that for decades - that is why no one stopped Hitler or Mussolini - they sounded right. Central planners believe they know best and that they would never abuse the power they grant themselves. They continue down that path, screwing up free markets and general liberty, and all of a sudden they have absolute power and evil intent. That is not a conspiracy, that is human nature. Millions have been murdered as a result, and in every case, at some point guns were outlawed and confiscated.

The celocanth(sp) was extinct for millions of years, so if you thought you saw one you were crazy or paranoid. Well, imagine the suprise of the "experts" when they found live ones.

By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. We’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home.

"I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...
