Alex Jones profiteering off Fort Lauderdale shooting
What a great time to sell body armor.
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ radio show used the January 6 mass shooting at an airport in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to urge viewers to buy body armor from Jones’ online store.
On January 6, a gunman killed five people and wounded six others when he opened fire with a handgun in the baggage claim area at Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport. The suspect, who was arrested at the scene, legally checked the firearm used for the shooting in his luggage on a flight from Anchorage, AK, to Fort Lauderdale.
The day of the shooting, two guest hosts on The Alex Jones Show — Infowars’ Owen Shroyer and David Knight — used the violence to urge viewers to buy body armor.
