The Nobel Prize winning economist, F. A. Hayek once said; "'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded." The hearing tonight at Newtown High will likely be a media circus

Can I just say that I just watched a couple of those "sandy Hook" hoax videos and OMG! Forget about it being totally...uurg...there's not even a word for it; These people are sicko's and they are all among us. Guess what? There are idiots who watch these video's and are totally convinced by them. Take some time and think...every one of their claims are disputable, subjective and doctored. Anyone can change dates and pictures. Guess what people? These people live among us!! They are the one's buying out all the guns. They are the ones who are now beginning to believe in some conspiracy theory.

I've never heard of a case where a gun was violent, just the people that mis-used them.
