But he never made or posted any statement, his publicist Stan Rosenfield told TheWrap Sunday. He said the actor's camp was trying to determine the origin of the hoax statementReddit users pointed to long Facebook post by "Mark" of Vancouver that is identical to Freeman's "statement, " according to the Inquisitor. "Mark" later commented on his own post, "If I know the Internet, someone will attribute the quote to Morgan Freeman or Betty White and it'll go viral."

Twitter, Facebook and Ryan Lanza: how tragedy turns social media users into crazed amateur detectives
In the aftermath of the Newtown shootings, many Twitter users became instant experts on gun control while others turned detective. It wasn't social media users that misidentified the killer as Ryan Lanza rather than his younger brother Adam – but once that titbit was out in the world, anyone bearing the name Ryan Lanza became fair game. Links to Facebook pages and Twitter accounts were shared by mainstream media outlets and web detectives alike.

I agree that the media attention this draws only worsens the problem. However, it's an unavoidable problem - one of the prices of a free media.
What I don't understand is how the fuckin' **** you can look at a crazy ************ doing crazy ************ **** and blame it on rich people.

America will never recover from the excessive arming of its citizens, not by gun control, anyway. You're fucking doomed, there's naught that can be done in that regard.
It is time to employ sentry guards at every block, two at every school, institute or more at places of higher assembly. Keep your guns, but be prepared to have uncle Sam up your date at every corner. Law abiding citizens should have no concerns, because you are law abiding citizens.
Of course, we all know how that kind of authority plays out when implemented, ahem, TSA.
Also, a quick question to gun owners, when was the last time you engaged in training with your local militia? Do you have a local militia? Is it well regulated? How is it regulated?GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Pretty everyone, the first time whether they admit it or not.

Hmmm, damn internet fake ****.
This looks real and is scary and heart wrenching. I've had to deal with some painful ****, as some who were around BBC six years ago might remember, but this poor woman, and her poor son. Lord help us.
