Pueblo candidate sorry about Newtown shooting comments that went viral
snips....

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."

Found this too......

Republican candidate for the Pueblo County Commission Tom Ready is a former Republican Party county chairman and member of the state Parks Board. He’s also not sure whether or not the Sandy Hook school shootings happened the way the media reported them.

In debate Wednesday night against Commissioner Sal Pace, a former Democratic state representative and House minority leader, Ready defended a link he posted on his Facebook page calling into question accounts of the December 14, 2012, Newtown, Connecticut, tragedy in which a deranged young man fatally shot 26 people, including 20 elementary school children.

“I don’t think [the shootings have] been proven,” he said. “And what’s wrong with open discussion?”

The Pueblo Chieftain reports that, after the debate, Ready said he didn’t recall posting the link specifically but that “it would not be the first time I put something out there for discussion.”
