[Mod cut]


Father of Sandy Hook victim speaks out on gun violence. - YouTube

No this guy is not an actor, his son was killed in Sandy Hook. Simple and elequant: "the problem is not gun laws, the problem is lack of civility".

I seen the tapes of the altered event and the unedited event. Seems like the house was even behind trying to create a story. I do not trust any thing FOX news broadcasts.

I'm not sure what that means by "altered event" or "house trying to create the story". Simply skip the fox news commentary and go to the tape of the father at .37 into the video.

I understand however, CNBC creatively edited a news peace to make it look like one father was heckled by the pro-gun crowd. Broadcast news ethics at it's worst. Here is the CNN version if that helps:
http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/29/us/con...hook-hearings/
""I don't care if you named it 'James' law,' I don't want (another law)," he said during the first of a series of meetings set up by a legislative task force assigned to review the state's gun laws
"I think there's much more promise for a solution in identifying, researching and creating solutions along the lines of mental health.""

I haven't done any research but someone on another forum says this is not a true story. The guy is supposedly a father of a child in the area but not one from Sandy Hook.

That was a different video that has been removed.

The fact that the video I posted was of a man who's child was not in the classroom is not the point. The point was that the speech the man gave was very good and pro-gun at a time when we really need it.
My error for giving the video the wrong title. However if you watch the video the parent says he is a resident of Newtown and his daughter's school was on lockdown.
Still a good message.

2 different videos, yes. My posted videa was from a father whose son was killed in the incident. It is not fake in any way and should not be confused with the other video.
