I don't approve of

Kinda throws a mud-ball at

Kinda throws a mud-ball at the official gun ban agenda doesn't it?

These real Sandy Hook residents better be careful. There are trained actors waiting the wings to take their places!

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Oh snap!

They want the armed guard option, not the gun ban option that the Sandy Hook actors cried and pleaded for. Oops...

Did anyone catch that bit where the Sandy Hook coroner said something like he hoped that no Sandy Hook residents would get conked on the head? Hope their wanting armed guards doesn't get them disappeared.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

This feels so wrong.

It feels like something happened in a movie or something. The whole incident is so unreal. No facts. No school surveillance video. No closure.
