Ahead of President Obama's announcement, on how he may try to address the ease of access to guns in the USA, news channels in the UK carried an interview with the parent's of one of the dead children. British boy Dylan Hockley was six-years-old when he was killed at Sandy Hook elementary school. His grieving parents hope that now, at last, America is ready to change its gun laws.
Earlier today an op-ed was published on this blog regarding US gun control. Having read so many excuses for maintaining the status quo in the USA, regarding guns, the latest beggars belief. It comes by way of an email received late tonight. It claims proof that Sandy Hook never happened. This is what it said,
Excerpt from Muad'Dib's January 7th, 2013 Critical Mass Radio interview:
So there you have it. Proof that the Sandy Hook massacre did not happen, or proof that America is a mess. A slap in the face for the bereaved and the survivors. In an effort to win their point gun supporters stoop to the lowest point of humanity. If their case is valid why do they have to resort to such nonsense? Guess we all know the answer to that one.
Note: Although the email may be suspect, in the last week we have encountered allegedly sane Americns espousing this and more. Citing sources but, in this digital age information is soon manipulated, often beyond recognition. The fact remains that in the last year America has had more than its fair share of gun massacres,. Why?
