Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax to approve Obamas gun law.

Give me one reason why Obama would not want to promote his new gun laws? And why did the community when asked by the news not know who Adam Lanza was?

Sandy Hook was and is still a tragic incident which affected many lives in a very negative way. Although I see no evidence that this was in any way a hoax, it is appalling to think that this is said by uniformed people. How could a whole class of students and their parents agree to be involved with this. Relocating this many students and families would not only be a very difficult, almost impossible task to hide. But also, this would not reflect well on the government when it was found out. Yes any hoax with this big of a story would be found out and debunked immediately.
Thank you

snopes.com: FBI Admits Sandy Hook Hoax
Debate Round No. 2

Con

Last line of the link below "Although the state's murder total was 146 that year, only 110 of those deaths were assigned to specific local jurisdictions in the FBI report. The statewide tally of 146 includes the 27 victims of the Sandy Hook massacre.
" This site was in fact the hoax, almost as much as this argument is. The latest update shows that the deaths were in fact real and the FBI takes them into account. No arguments are being put before me as of now and I see no evidence coming forth. The real hoax is the affirmative of this debate.

First line of link: "The FBI has revealed that no murders occurred in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, inadvertently admitting that the Sandy Hook massacre was an elaborate hoax" Are you going to ignore the evidence I mentioned in the beginning or provide answers?

Congress can't get anything done. Why would anyone expect that creating a school shooting hoax would mobilize them?

You both really didn't bring up a good argument.

Reasons for voting decision: There were too few rounds and too tight a character limit (it appears) for this debate to really take off. Both made equally good or bad arguments (neither really said anything very convincing tbh) but Pro made very few arguments, he simply quoted sources so I'm giving arguments to Con. Both had good conduct. I'm giving spelling and grammar to Pro because "uniformed" is not the same as "uninformed". That one letter made quite a big difference. Pro has no official or reliable sources so I'm not giving him the point for that.
