newtown action allianceThe Newtown Action Alliance has joined NYAGV in calling on Fred Dicker, radio show host and New York Post columnist, to apologize for referring the the Sandy Hook shootings as a “little convenient massacre.”

Dicker made the remark about the December 2012 shootings on his “Live from the State Capitol” show on Talk 1300 AM on January 13.

Monte Frank of the Newtown Action Alliance, a grassroots organization founded by Newtown residents after the shootings, said, “I cannot understand how anyone can call “convenient” the murder of 20 children and six educators at the school down the road here in Sandy Hook. I pray that no community has to experience the horrific tragedy we did. Mr. Dicker owes the families of those who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook tragedy an apology.” He added, “We applaud Governor Cuomo and our neighbors in New York for having the courage to enact the SAFE Act to reduce the risk of another community having to experience the horror we endured.”
