Jones took the stand Thursday during his second defamation trial for saying the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax, attempt to take away Americans’ guns.
Jones is on trial in Waterbury, Connecticut, about 20 miles from Newtown, where the shooting took place.
A jury is being asked to decide how much he should pay in damages to the families of eight Sandy Hook shooting victims and an FBI agent who responded to the attack, all of whom say his lies about the shooting led to emotional distress and harassment by people who believed his lies.
“Is this a struggle session? Are we in China?” Jones exclaimed it testimony after being reminded of those who were murdered.
Jones said he ‘legitimately thought” the massacre might have been staged and “I stand by that. I don’t apologize for it.”
