Some audio recordings of 911 calls from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting were released to the news media Wednesday afternoon.

The release of the calls, made to Newtown, Connecticut, police on the day of the December 2012 shooting, came after the Associated Press challenged authorities’ refusal to release the 911 tapes.

Last week, Connecticut Superior Court Judge Eliot Prescott upheld the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission’s ruling to release calls related to the December 14, 2012 shooting. A state attorney had tried to block the release to shield the victims’ families.

The massacre at Sandy Hook left 26 people dead, including 20 children, making it the second-deadliest shooting in U.S. history.

The gunman, Adam Lanza, shot himself at the end of his 11-minute rampage.

The killings in Newtown, about 60 miles outside New York, happened less than five months after a similar bloodbath at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, outside Denver.

Those mass slayings triggered a nationwide debate over gun violence, school safety and mental health, a debate that produced some new restrictions on firearms in several states.

Backlash by gun-rights advocates followed.

    I watched the you tube video of the “fake” parent who had to “make” himself sad in the interview…..the whole thing is another government shooting to try and control guns.

      Raven, you are not the only one. Sandy Hook opened my eyes to a lot that was going on around us. It is not stupid or sick to question everything folks. All one has to do is look at Operation Fast and Furious for starters. That WAS a false flag that got exposed. Also, look into Operation Northwoods.

      Raven, How dare you say that you scumbag. You are beyond ignorant. You are the sheep. Wake up and see the truth. Sandy Hook was real. I’m sorry that you are so lost in the world.

    how do we know anything is real, its on TV it must be real, its on the news it must be real. Why could it not be fake? yes it may also be real. truth is we dont know S@#t. People like to think they do but they dont, we fill our selves with false hope and false securities and surround our selves with people that believe as we believe so that we have confirmation.

      self confirmation**** hell im not even sure Connecticut is real , ive never seen it. I spent the first 5 years of my life believing in a white bearded red hat fellow that brings gifts just because i trusted the ones who said he was real. I spent the next 20 years believing in something just because thats what we do/did and its how “I” was raised but never oh no never question anything and would be absurd.
