"The conspiracy theories are many and weird. For example, all of us have heard about the government cover up of visits by extra terrestrial beings to planet Earth. Some people claim to have seen flying saucers in the sky while yet others claim to have been kidnapped by these beings, brought to their saucer and submitted to intrusive physical examinations.
One of the more painful theories is that the murder of 18 children in the Newtown massacre was committed by the government to give them an excuse to take guns away from Americans. In fact, some conspiracists assert that the massacre never occurred. They insist that it was a media event created toward the same goal of taking our guns away."
My Comment: If some people want to think that we are being governed by reptilian overlords or that 9-11 was a plot by some group other than have been publicly identified, then I choose to simply disengage and be on my way slowly shaking my head and being grateful that I'm not similarly afflicted. But, if someone claims that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, then I hope I'm not in their proximity. Their insanity is exactly why some people should not be carrying firearms in public. Paranoid schizophrenics with a propensity for handling guns can be dangerous.
