By Mike Adams, the Health Ranger(NaturalNews) Here at Natural News, we have a reputation for asking intelligent questions about things that don't add up. There are a lot of mysteries out there, and they deserve to be explored and questioned: Why is there still mercury in vaccines? Why did the WTC 7 building implode and fall when no airplane hit it? If the government can create money from nothing, why are we still paying taxes?And today, I'm adding to that list this commonsense question: Why has no surveillance footage been released from the Sandy Hook shooting, showing Adam Lanza blasting away with an AR-15?Here's why the non-release of this video footage is so interesting:Every time a school shooting takes place, one of the very first things that gets released to the media is the school surveillance footage depicting the gun and the shooter. The purpose of this is to associate the pain and anguish of the massacre to the image of a scary-looking rifle.In mere days after the Columbine shooting in 1998, for example, the media received footage from the massacre and began playing it over and over again, hammering home the images of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold with their guns. The same is true with numerous other school shootings as you'll see below.But with the Sandy Hook school shooting, no video footage has been released. A reasonable person has to ask the question: WHY?You see, the release of footage of Adam Lanza murdering children with an AR-15 -- if such a thing even happened -- would strongly support the mainstream media's call for banning so-called "assault rifles." It would also:• Amp up the emotional impact of the fear mongering being carried out by the media.• Provide visual support for the gun-grabber's plea to ban all rifles.• Provide a wealth of images to be used by newspapers and magazines to further demonize the image of rifles.... and yet, for some reason, we see no surveillance footage from Sandy Hook.Why is that?
