I don't think they are idiots but I don't believe it was.
I think sandy hook was bought about because a lot of us have no family values and we have turned a lot of raising our kids over to the government and they are making bad decisions for our children but I don't think that they would perpetrate a huge hoax like this for gun control.
We are becoming more and more of a target, domestically and internationally. Brother against brother. Mom against child. It is killing us. The division of the very family core is detrimental and makes us weak.
