The bitcoin extortionists who have been sending threats to public buildings this week may not be part of this, but what sociopath would send a threat to the new Sandy Hook school on the sixth anniversary of the shootings.


On April 17, 2018, radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was sued for defamation by three parents whose children were killed in the shooting. Prior to this, Jones said that the Sandy Hook shooting was “completely fake” and a “giant hoax” perpetrated by opponents of the Second Amendment.[258] Jones claims he later believed the shooting was real.[259] On May 23, 2018, six more families sued Jones for his claims.[260]
