NRA Sought Infowars Help In “Debunking” Parkland

The Huffington Post reports:

An official with the National Rifle Association corresponded with a prominent Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist to call into question the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, emails obtained by HuffPost show.

NRA officer Mark Richardson emailed Wolfgang Halbig [photo], a noted harasser of parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims, to float a conspiracy theory about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed last year.

“Just like [Sandy Hook], there is so much more to this story,” Richardson said in an email dated Feb. 15, 2018 ― just one day after the Florida shooting. Twenty children and six adults were killed during the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. “[The Parkland shooter] was not alone.” The email was sent from his official NRA email address.

Halbig, an Infowars contributor, has confirmed the email, which was exposed in the discovery motions in the lawsuit filed by Sandy Hook parents against Alex Jones. Halbig was also in the news earlier this week after the suicide of the father of a Sandy Hook victim. Hit the link!
