On the morning of December 18, 2012 administrators at New York City Public School 79 (the Horan School) in East Harlem conducted an entirely unannounced “active shooter drill.” The event, which took place just four days after the high profile Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown Connecticut, terrified the school’s 300 special needs adolescent and young adult students and the 100 teaching and counseling staff members. Ranging in age from 12 to 21, Horan’s largely Hispanic student body contends with an array of mental and emotional disabilities, including autism and cerebral palsy.
Coming less than one week after the Sandy Hook tragedy, the Horan School hoax drill has left many students and staff members severely traumatized and seeking accountability from administrators.
The questions remains: Why would major news media virtually censor an event where hundreds of especially helpless individuals were needlessly terrorized by supervisors who took it upon themselves to create an “active shooter” scenario? Where were the convoys of satellite trucks and slick broadcast journalists interviewing the traumatized victims? Why weren’t cable news talk shows abuzz with pundits decrying the needless drill and defending the underprivileged children and teachers?
The simple answers are that 1) Horan’s students are poor disabled minorities—a constituency that is politically powerless, and, 2) no one was injured or killed. These are both plausible explanations for the media blackout.
Alongside a dearth of publicly available evidence and an ensuing investigation into Sandy Hook that authorities maintain was carried out by a single estranged young man, the Obama administration and its Congressional allies have proceeded to move forward on far-reaching gun control and mental health-related diktats and legislation as if the investigation itself was entirely consistent and transparent.

This is your 2nd attempt at putting words in my mouth. My OP or the most recent you are commenting to do not say anything about a complete ban on guns.
It was staged, for the purpose of disarmament of the American citizens
If they want to take away our guns...

The recent school shootings have gone from being a 99% possibility of being a staged event, to now being 100% positive staged event.
Anyone whom cannot see it yet is a foolish, gullible, non-thinking sad example of a human being. Or a shill.
It was staged, for the purpose of disarmament of the American citizens. We must show that we will not stand for acts of Treason against the American People.

Have you ever been really upset about something? Truly suffered a terrible loss? How did you look in the morning after crying all night?
I recently suffered a great loss and I could barely open my eyes the next morning they were so swollen shut from crying. I don't think I looked like my normal self for about three days following the loss. My make up certainly didn't look that good. I don't believe a professional make up artist could've made my eyes look un-puffy or remove the redness.

You know what I find MOST interesting about this video? Note his REAL emotion and how he nearly broke down and cried just thinking about his kid being in that situation. Now go watch some of the videos of the parents of the victims of Sandy Hook only a day or two after the tragedy. Whenever I point this out to someone I know, they always tell me I'm crazy for even saying that and they tell me "everyone grieves differently". Yeah... everyone does grieve differently, but I don't think it's far-fetched to think that a parent who had just lost their child would be a teary mess.
