Professor fired for questioning Sandy Hook. Ask a question, lose your job

Tenured professor James Tracey has been fired by Florida Atlantic University for questioning the accuracy of reporting about Sandy Hook and other mass shootings.

Here's an interview with him that sums up his position and his methodology.

It's now a firing offense to be a reasonable person who asks reasonable questions.
