A Pueblo County commission candidate whose comments about the Newtown shootings drew gasps and now death threats says his remarks were misunderstood.

Republican Tom Ready said Saturday the article on his Facebook page saying the shootings were a "hoax" intended to drum up support for tougher gun-controls was written by someone else. He said he simply "pushed a button" and linked that article to his page to encourage discussion.

"We haven't got all the questions answered," he said, adding he was surprised by the outcry. "Where's freedom of speech? I didn't know we were a communist community."

"I'm not a 'truther,' whatever that is."

"If you recall, there was a picture of a man walking in whose daughter died. He was smiling and joking. When he walked into the room he turned and all of the sudden he had tears in his eyes. Why? I question that."
