Media FALSELY Claims Gun Activists Heckled Father of Murdered Newtown Boy

Tuesday morning, many in the media went all in with a sanctimonious attack against gun-rights supporters, whom they accused of heckling Neil Heslin, the parent of a six-year-old boy murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre. The only problem is that it was all a lie. Mr. Heslin was not heckled.

If you look at the full, unedited tape (which was first obtained by Twitchy), you'll see that after 15 minutes of the audience remaining respectfully silent as Mr. Heslin spoke out against assault weapons, he then turns to ask the audience a direct question:

I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question … why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips? Mr. Heslin then pauses waiting for someone in the audience to answer. His question is respectfully asked but no one says a word.

Then Mr. Heslin says: Not one person can answer that question.

And it's only then that a few people do answer the question, and do so respectfully.

must have been a very 'progressive' family

if this father agreed that his son would carry his wife's name. How often does that happen nowadays?
Why don't I believe this man? There's something that strikes me so wrong about his testamony. Some of what he says I agree with, re: mental illness issues though not as he espouses them.
But does he really think his 'son' would want him to help rip up our Constitution's most important Amendment? His argument is so very careully couched at some points - ordinary citizens don't need defense (he calls the 'assault') weapons, crimnials will always have weapons so let's not bother about trying to get weapons away from them just make the punishment stricter when they do have them but definitely take guns away from law-abiding people. This guy isn't thinking straight at all and just blubbering LSM talking points.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
