A media professor at Florida Atlantic University won't apologize for questioning the Sandy Hook school massacre, but denies he is fostering a conspiracy theory.

James Tracy wrote on his personal blog that believes the events that unfolded in the Newtown, Conn., elementary school did not happen as we think - if at all.

“While it sounds outrageous, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place," he writes, suggesting Newtown didn't happen as reported.

He suggests there were multiple shooters and that the number of dead is incorrect, and that the government may have brought in actors to add drama.

The Daily Mail reported that James Tracy, a tenured history professor at Florida Atlantic University, wrote this in a lengthy post on his personal blog.

Tracy explores what he says is the possibility that the Newtown shooting may not have happened the way that it is widely believed, if it happened at all.

The 47-year-old professor bases his claims largely on the flurry of conflicting media reports that were made as news of the shooting was released.

Appearing alongside husband Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords was a guest today on Good Morning America, touching on a subject she sadly knows all too well:

Gun violence.

The ex-Congresswoman - who survived a shooting in Arizona two years ago - visited Newtown, Connecticut last week and had one word for Diane Sawyer when the topic turned to these bloody massacres:

Enough.

Gabrielle Giffords on GMA

"After the shooting in Tucson, there was talk about addressing some of these issues, [and] again after Aurora," Kelly said. "I'm hopeful that this time is different, and I think it is. Twenty first-graders' being murdered in their classrooms is a very personal thing for everybody."

Gabrielle Giffords paid an emotional visit this afternoon to Newtown, Connecticut, as the former Congressman tragically has something in common with this scarred area.

Giffords, of course, was shot in the head two years ago outside Tucson in an incident that claimed five people.

The brave politician was accompanied by husband Mark Kelly and reportedly met first selectman Pat Llodra, Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman.

"Our horrible event of Dec. 14 has some of those same tragic elements as experienced in the Tucson event that so harmed Ms. Giffords and took the lives of innocent citizens," Llodra said in a statement. "I believe that our community will see Ms. Giffords as an ally in the efforts to draw attention to gun control legislation."

Stooping lower than we realized people were capable of, Nouel Alba was arrested for running a scam tied to the Newtown, Connecticut shooting this month.

The New York City woman tried to fleece donors by posing as the aunt of a child killed in the elementary school, federal authorities said Thursday.

Alba, 37, is accused of using her Facebook account, telephone calls and text messages to seek donations for what she called a Newtown "funeral fund."

She even went so far as to tell one donor she had to enter the scene of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School to identify her nephew.

Demi Lovato has come out with a special new single.

Almost two weeks after 26 individuals lost their lives at the hands of Adam Lanza, The X Factor judge has dedicated a version of "Angels Among Us" to those affected by the massacre.

"We can never imagine what the families in Newtown, CT are experiencing right now," the video says in its opening. "And while there is nothing we can do to replace their loss, we can stand together and support them during this difficult time. This song is in honor of those angels we lost on December 14."

It's a beautiful gesture, a lot more uplifting than Jesse James' gun rant.

Thank you, Demi, for striking the perfect note with this song.
