Since December many - indeed, if not MOST - of the threads on here alleging a Sandy Hook conspiracy of any time always stated the motive was that the US government was seeking for a way to take our guns away. Well, in case anyone has not noticed, the gun reform bill proposed by Obama failed in spectacular fashion in the senate. Politico reports that the measure is good as dead, and any promise by Obama or reform supporters to keep fighting is bluster.
The fear mongering over this had very real consequences. I wasn't able to buy guns or ammo for months because people were hysterically panic buying - convinced due to threads they read on sites like this that the government was going to take their guns or make it hard for them to get more.
I won't even get into the very obvious fact that if Sandy Hook was a conspiracy to take away guns, then the government is both capable of a heinous, terrible conspiracy to murder children but yet incapable of getting its own politicians (who would be on the conspiracy payroll) to go along with the plan.
I thought about linking the first dozen or so threads on ATS search I found that came up with this, but let me see if anyone will apologize on their own: any regrets over the pointless fear mongering now?edit on 18-4-2013 by thelongjourney because: (no reason given)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced the decision on the floor Thursday. He said he spoke to President Barack Obama and the two agreed the best way to move forward was to “hit pause.”
Just the opposite I would say citizens: to go to their offices and say: thank you for standing up and defending the US Constitution, and not letting one more freedom be trampled on.
"Speaking is physically difficult for me. But my feelings are clear: I’m furious," former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords wrote in a New York Times opinion piece published after the vote. Giffords was shot at a Tucson grocery store as she met with constituents in 2011.

But privately, administration officials were looking ahead to the far more sanguine prospects of negotiating a bipartisan immigration reform bill — and expressed hope that clearing the decks on guns would raise prospects for a faster agreement. Despite Obama’s vow to fight on, one senior adviser to the president said “it was a fair question” to ask if Obama’s old campaign apparatus, Organizing for Action, could help create a groundswell of protest against the “no” voters in each party.
