Would you believe that there are Sandy Hook truthers, people who believe the murders at the Newtown schools were completely faked? Some of them are even college professors! They think it was a cunning plan by Obama to railroad through gun control.
On the other hand, there are conspiracy theorists who have a completely different idea.
My worst fear: Dozens of terrorist sleeper cells, with five or six men each, would activate roughly at the same time and attack designated schools across the country. I’d be at work, and I would be helpless to retrieve my children and keep them safe from maniacs.
I imagined further that, from a terrorist’s point of view, these attacks would have a dramatic, profound effect on our collective psyche: No parent would allow his child to return to school to long as they were not secure from violent, lethal attacks. Our economy and economic security wouldn’t just hiccup; it would collapse.
I have a request. Can we please give them all the guns they so deeply desire, lock them in a room together, and let them…settle…the issue?
