“Newtown United” Is “Rebranding” To Keep Pushing Gun Control

One of the odd aspects of the Sandy Hook massacre is that, not only was the crime scene controlled and restricted, but so were the parents of the victims. The day after the shooting, State Police Lieutenant J. Paul Vance released a statement that included the following:

“The family of each victim was assigned a Trooper or Officer to establish and maintain an open line of communication. This was put into place so families of the victims can have immediate contact related to any questions they may have and to also provide State Police investigators the ability to communicate with families without delay. The families have requested no press interviews and we are asking that this request be honored…  Crisis counseling teams are on-site to provide support to the families of all of the victims.”

Yet within two days a “grassroots” organization appeared, calling itself Newtown United and posturing as the representatives of the Sandy Hook victims’ parents. CNN claimed, “They admit they don`t know what they are doing,” but they did it very well. According to their Facebook page, they were providing a venue/being supported by both Connecticut Senators within three days of their founding and five days after the shooting. Indeed, they were working with and getting support from the Brady Campaign on December 16.

So before the blood had time to dry, someone was working hard to make sure those “grass roots” were visible. I don’t remember anything comparable happening the day after any other shooting tragedy. By the Nineteenth, they had already appointed a committee in the organization. And you probably already know what it was for:

“Newtown United's committee for sensible gun legislation is meeting from 6-8 pm tonight at the CH Booth Library. Everyone interested in this topic is welcome. We will hear from local residents who traveled to Washington yesterday. Other committees are forming and will meet at later dates.”

I’m not going to waste time documenting further that “Sandy Hook Promise,” formerly “Newtown United,” is lying when it disavows partisanship or an agenda. It is simply an anti-second-amendment lobbying group that organizes some help or support for the victims as a way a garnering attention. It doesn’t surprise me that anti-gun zealots would be willing to move on a tragedy to make the whole nation into a gun free zone shooting gallery.

What I do want to point out is that the media/government complex is treating Sandy Hook as the liaison and representative of the victims’ families. It looks like even Biden went through “Sandy Hook Promise” to approach the families. For some, who are involved in the group, this is true. But the victims are not a monolithic group.

“It's not clear how many families of the 26 Sandy Hook victims are participating in the group's activities or what their viewpoints are. A number of families have signaled their desire to be left alone for now as they mourn their lost ones and rebuild their lives.”

I’m curious how this “signal” was given. Is this a reference to the State Police Press Release requesting privacy? Or what?

I’m also curious how much politicians at the Federal and State levels were involved in encouraging this Anti-Second-Amendment lobby to form. After all, Governor Malloy told the press that he had been “spoken to” about a mass shooting happening in Connecticut:

“Earlier today a tragedy of unspeakable terms played itself out in this community. Lieutenant Governor and I have been spoken to in an attempt that we might be prepared for something like this playing itself out in our state.”

Was getting ready to immediately set up a local lobby for new legislation part of the preparations that were discussed with the Governor and Lieutenant Governor? Since Malloy has not revealed yet who spoke to them about a mass shooting in his state, or when, or what they wanted them to do to prepare for it, I have no way of knowing. But I can’t help wondering about it.

    I suspect more false flag mass shootings to bring in the next phase of 2nd Amendment shredding. The DC socialist gaggle and several governors/mayors are stone-headed to take all our guns. This whole dictatorial scheme was preplanned in building FEMA camps, stockpiling body bags, caskets and millions of bone-shattering rounds. It ain't over till Frankenstein sings.

    • JoJo58

      I think you're right. When I first heard of the Sandy Hook shootings my first thought was that the Gabby shooting, the Colorado and Oregon shootings weren't shocking enough, and Fast and Furious didn't work as expected, so there was a necessity for something extremely horrific to happen in order to push gun control.

      The stories kept changing, and it seemed just a bit too strange. I still think there is more going on than what is being reported. Then the way they handled everything from leaving the dead children in the school to "make certain everything was recorded properly". They didn't do it at the Virginia Tech murders, so why this? To make people think about their poor little bodies lying in pools of blood? I did, but it just made me angry at the people handling the situation and making it about politics.

    Well, Conn has guns, and some went out and got more guns, so Conn is not a good enough reason to back obama, there are kids being kid in USA, most are never brought to trail. And the photos in the Conn. pictures, are photoshop.

      It would be interesting to know that there are people on the loose who have, as a general plan, a goal to invade and shoot up schools across the country, when an opportunity presents itself. The purpose? To create general pandemonium and give that much more impetus to breaking down the Second Amendment. Dictatorial types stop at nothing on the way to their goal of tyranny with themselves, of course, wielding the reins of power.

      Since the USA has a government which stands basically opposite to every other government in the entire international community, it must be destroyed. That was the goal from the outset. Those engaged in that pursuit will stop at nothing. Obama is just one cog in that wheel.

    When the first reports reggarding the shooting came out, only mentioned were the Glock and Sig Sauer simi auto pistols The bushmaster was found in a car. Now it is the BUSHMASTER that performed all these killings. What magicians are the media and politicians. I guess the Bushmaster SNAKED its way into the school and reared its head and did the dasterardly deed of murdering these people. Maybe we should put some Bushmasters in Washington.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/5P73LT3ABJXXILIHMH6SK6B7OM Wild Thing

      The gun found in the car was not a bushmaster, it was a pistol handled shotgun, probably a Saiga. I cannot believe so long after this tragedy you are still helping the media push this lie.

    • tionico

      Uhh, how about this to add to the "confusion"? That "Bushmaster" found in the car was NOT a Bushmaster, or any other type of AR, "assault weapon". of "black and ugly" rifle. I saw the video footage taken from a hovering chopper as the officer opened the trunk, found the "rifle", took it into his hands, and cleared/safed it. The Bushmaster has a Tee-shaped "charging handle" to withdraw the bolt, removing any rounds in the chamber, at the top and toward the rear of the weapon. The weapon this officer was handling has a small lever sticking straight out of the SIDE of the weapon up forward, at the back end of the barrel (front of the ejection port), right side). As the officer "racked" the bolt, a large round fell out.. obviously a shotgun shell, likely twelve bore.

      Further, the cornoer, when interviewed briefly on camera as he emerged from the building at the scene, said the victims were shot at close range wiht a HANDGUN. SO.. initial reports werew correct, he used a handgun, NOT a Bushmaster. Note well: all four weapons were stolen, federal and state level felonies. He transported them unlswfulli, not having a CT state owners permit, four more felonies. He was in possession of loaded handguns in public, at twenty years of age, two state felonies (must be 21....). He violated the Federal "Gun Free" (Iyeah, it really WAS....) School zZones Act, four more felonies. Add in, for good measure, the fact that he was transporting firearms with intent to commit felonies... four more. How many felonies is that? And how many of them stopped him? Yet, for any one of the m urdered adults to have been carrying their own handgun for such events would have ben a felony.

      It is my imagination, or is there something wrong with this picture?

    Something that has bothered me is the phrase "gun control".... this is not an accurate term. What the WH means and "can't " say is "mind control". Guns are an object, neither evil or good until the person behind the trigger picks it up. Then it is the mind of the person behind the trigger that makes the gun a good thing or bad. So, until the government thinks they can control minds.... they should give it up this pathetic attempt to reduce violence. All that is happening is a gross violation of the "rights" of all people. I support the rights of all people to bear arms and I am against one persons personal agenda to violate it.

    • JoJo58

      Guns can never be good or evil no matter who picks them up, they are inanimate objects. The person pulling the trigger is another issue.

    • John Mescas

      What part of the concept of "well regulated" in the constitution do you have so much trouble grasping?

      • socialisimmustgo

        what part of " the right of the people shall not be infringed" do you not understand militia isnt the national guard that works for the government and " well regulated " means trained and that is what ccw permit is a trained person
        deal with your own criminals in your own state and leave the nation out of it the perp committed all kind of felonies and if it was actually his mother who allowed access to the firearms by her mental issue son then she was negligent also
        how did he get into the building ? know it all where is your verified mainstream media blather on that you are the one thaT IS EVIL IF YOU WANT TO MAKE ALL CHILDREN DEFENSELESS IN THEIR OWN HOMES SINCE YOU HAVE MADE US ANGRY WITH YOUR PROBLEMS ALL OF US ARE GOING TO APPLY FOR CLASS lll FFL TO OWN FULL AUTO AND WE WILL SEE HOW YOU LIKE THAT GUNS KILL 30K SUPPOSEDLY AND IN 2011 THIS ADMINISTRATION FUNDED 333 MILLION ABORTIONS WHERE WERE YOU SCREAMING ABOUT EVIL THEN? YOUR GOVERNMENT IS EVIL AND THEY PROBABLY KILLED THE NEWTOWN 20 LIKE THEY DID THE 333 MILLION IN ONE YEAR IDIOT!

    You can find much documentation that this Sandy Hook event has been spun dry like a fresh washed shirt. The weapons used, the number of perps detained, the number of shooters, etc, etc none agreeing with the first reports, video's showing people chased into the woods by cops, the boy who saw another man in cuffs between the school and the fire station. And the media anti gun hype starting before the kid's bodies were cold.
    Call me a cynical ol' geezer, but I wouldn't put it past this government to have initiated this massacre because fast & furious was a dismal failure ginning up support for another gun ban. They were perfectly willing to deliberately distribute "assault weapons" to Mexican drug cartels, knowing these guns would be used in criminial activity such as the murder of several hundred Mexicans. They needed something with a lot more emotional 'fuel' to achieve their gun ban goal. Murdering 20 little kids did the trick.

    • John Mescas

      You conspiracy freaks are showing your true colors, calling and harassing the grieving families in Newtown with your paranoid insane conspiracy theories. Some families have been harassed so much by maggots like you that they had to remove the websites they put up in honor of their dead children.

      People like you are beyond sick Silas. You are EVIL.

      • XX

        a couple of the websites were put up the day before the shooting. Ask yourself some questions John. This school was shot up, why were there no ambulances. There have been enough school shootings over the years for us to know what one looks like. First, there has NEVER been a shooting without wounded survivors. This time though, there were no ambulances close enough to take care of the possibility. Second, the shooter supposedly went down a hall and from room to room, yet he only shot people in the first room and no one after that..Third, where are the kids? The helicopter overhead never got any film with kids in it, supposedly after a school of 600+ kids was terrorized. When exactly did they kids get out of the school? Look at films of other school shootings, and you will see what I mean. Be willing to look and see for yourself, do not resort to name calling and verbal bullying. Just look at the footage that is available and see it for yourself. Finally, look at the film of the Dad preparing to speak to the media about his daughter who was killed. . Of course still shots can be photo shopped. But this is a film, and how could anyone invent this man laughing and joking, then asking if the cameras were ready, then putting on a long face for the feed...

        I have lost a child, and I can tell you, that is not how you look or talk the day after you lose your child

      • socialisimmustgo

        well don't draw the rest of the nation into your gun policy problems that create victims then why do you have narcotic traffickers living in your communities?
        who have been connected to this incident you come on here blaming people you don't know for sickness and evil when it lived in your community if you need better gun laws then legislate them in your state dont draw all the legal americans into your mess you cant police correctly coastal liberals constantly blaming the rest of the nation for human garbage that pile up on the coasts and breed.

        • John Mescas

          Shut the hell up. I don't even live in that state. They aren't drawing national attention upon themselves. The NATION is drawing attention to it.

          lol well if you don't live there and aren't one of the DHS/fema actors then you don't have a dog in the race ..... it was a full blown display of jewish cabal satanisim that was prerehearsed and recorded and loaded with misinformation and confusion and the acting jobs were lousy and with DHS and Fema and the jewish cabalists have all been connected together now and what about the staged incident two years previous in Norwalk those victims are still alive . We are fed up with your government/hollywood hoaxes to extort wealth and manipulation of society and it's policies.
          why does the church of satanism in SF list newtown as their "eastern outpost"?

      THIS CLOWN NAMED jOHN MESCAS ( A MAGGOT ) IS FEEDING ON THE DEAD CHILDREN BELOW YOUR COMMENT

  • QuisPercusit

    This calls for a total and complete boycott of All things in or from New Town Connecticut as well as All things NewYorkish, Illinoisish, Washington DCish and Californian. IF All the gun owners boycotted theise liberal gulags and got just one other person each to do so also.

    I think the economic impact would eventually stave off the Fiscal cliff (which we all know is just a specious delusion to threaten congress to give Obamafraud more and more of the taxpayers mone) and show the liberal histerically deluioned dupes of the Democratic party and RINO Republicans that there are more than one way to skin the mass murderer cat.
    So short of firing musket vollys at government mercenaries we should boycott every thing even remotely or seemingly unconstitutional.from the most seemingly tyranical histrionical, hyperbolical places in the Nation.

    It is quite obvious that the parents are sick of being reminded by the ignorant press that they lost a child. They are reminded daily by these cold heartless idiots. They are very vulnerable right now and as long as this stays in the news, they will do whatever to get the media off their backs.
