The families who lost their children in the Sandy Hook mass shooting are furious after Donald Trump hosted an NRA top exec at the White House on the massacre's fifth anniversary.
Nicole Hockley's son Dylan, 6, was among the 20 children and six members of staff killed in December 2012, when Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut.
Hockley later became one of the founding members of the Sandy Hook Promise, a group advocating for gun control and mental health programs 'so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child.'
So she and the other victims' families were outraged when Trump chose to mark the fifth anniversary of the senseless tragedy, by inviting the National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre to the White House Christmas party on December 14.
'December 14th marked five years since my six-year-old son, Dylan, was murdered in his first grade classroom alongside 19 of his classmates and 6 educators,' Nicole Hockley wrote in a lengthy Facebook post on Sunday.

The article I posted right before this one lamented the decline of the nation because "not enough people cared" about illegal immigration. I opined that people cared but the news was being dominated by useless crap and sensationalism. This article is a perfect example of that.
The article is the usual #FakeNews:
“Anti-gun Leftists in far-left Connecticut slam President Trump for [Insert whatever action President Trump took this week]”
Hillary won CT by 14%. It’s not surprising that people who already hate having a patriotic and pro-Constitution president will criticize Trump for continuing to support freedom. The fact is that if a few teachers had been armed and decently skilled with firearms, far more of those kids
would have lived. The Left doesn’t care though. They would rather have dead kids and a talking point than have their own children survive. The NRA is the solution to the problem they are whining about; they are just too ignorant to recognize the truth.
Gee, how dare an organization that defends our Constitutional Rights exist?
The "Gun Control" crowd acts like a hysterical child, believing that they can "outlaw evil." Yeah, good luck with that.
Evil exists. You have a basic right to defend yourself, your loved ones, and your property.
The "Gun Control" crowd cares not a whit about human life, because when there is a stabbing, a mass homicide using automobiles, or murder by other means these same people are nowhere to be found.
Also, do these people believe that Trump should modify the White House schedule in order to be "sensitive" to everyone's little anniversary?
Hey, how "insensitive" it was for Moochelle Obama to take her own jet flight (at taxpayer expense) on the anniversary of 911.
I mean, the terrorists used jet planes to commit mass murder, and there she/he was! Flying on one!
I am outraged!!
The NRA is the solution to the problem they are whining about; they are just too ignorant to recognize the truth.
Yep. Its all about talking points. The left hates life itself and is working diligently to use anything they can to howl about this president. Doesnt matter if their kids are collateral damage.
The nra had zero to do with sandy hook but the left always twists things to connect dots that are polar opposites. Truth be damned.
I didn’t know the NRA was behind the attack.
You learn something new every day in msm.
We're never going to win Connecticut lol
They should direct their anger at the left for closing most of the loony tunes bins in the country and turning them loose on the general public.
Those grieving lunkheads refuse to realize that the NRA is the best friend they could have. If they insist on the pipedream of “gun control,” Chicago and Detroit are always open to them, with the strictest “gun control” (and the highest homicide rates) in the Nation.
It must be tough to have your kids killed AND be a flaming liberal moron.
Liberals want stricter gun laws like Chicago with the strictest and we see how well that works there.
On KBCO (Boulder), I hear an ad each morning against Rep. Mike Coffman by the mother of ine of the Aurora Theatre victims. She sounds venomous in it. It makes me angry every time I hear it. Angry that this woman would place her anger where she has. Angry that she would allow herself to be used in such a fashion.
Aurora theater shooting victim hammers Mike Coffman for concealed carry vote in radio ad
Sunday, December 17, 2017
The mother of one of the victims of the Aurora theater shooting tears into U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman for his recent vote on gun legislation in a radio ad that began airing in the Republicans suburban district this week.
The Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, the political arm of one of the countrys largest gun control groups, said its pouring more than $100,000 into a radio ad campaign hitting Coffman on his vote last week to allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits to carry hidden handguns in other states.
If there had been a couple of concealed carry people at Sandy Hook the carnage would have been lessened.. Just a fact!!!
There is no solution to Nut Jobs....they simply exist!!!!
Right. Get rid of Trump so that we have open borders and ban guns.
My tagline is taylor made for this.
you mean the “gun free zone” signs did not work, I am shocked I tell you, shocked /sarcoff
Not trying to be a truther . Something nagging in my brain DOUBTS the veracity of the whole Sandy Hook thing. Either that or it was orchestrated.
Now Ill take of my tinfoil chapeau.
Agree ~There are quite a plethora of anomalies there ....
