Nobody. He shot the glass out and walked through.
The story has always been that he shot throught the viewing glass, stuck his arm through and opened the door from the inside.
Did this change?
Why make that assumption when the latest reports show it false?
Initial reports gave many conflicting pieces of information from "un-named sources".
Official reports state he shot his way in, breaking the glass.
When Lanza arrived at the school, he forcibly entered, according to Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.
"What we know is he shot his way into the building. He was not buzzed in," Malloy told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "He penetrated the building by literally shooting an entrance into the building."
I know when I went to my kids school there was a door with an electronic lock and a video camera. You’d ring the buzzer and one of two things would happen: They’d either buzz you in without saying a word, or some horribly distorted voice like a fast-food drive thru speaker came on, I suppose asking me to state my business. The audio was so bad maybe I could have said I was a terrorist bomber and been buzzed thru.
Yes, it was first reported he was buzzed in.
In fact he shot his way in by blowing out the glass.
You can make your own assumptions to answer all of your questions.
Their official story is that he forced or broke his way into the school, if someone buzzed him in - we will never know about it.
Chance, please start paying attention.
Locks only keep an honest man honest. Remember what happened to the locked police facility in the first Terminator movie after Arnold said “I’ll be back”?
I suspicion that school "lock down" drills are like the school fire drills that I had as a kid. The fire drills were often announced in advance, there were no attempts to add reality like some exits being blocked or having to get down and crawl to exits due to smoke like might occur in a real fire and not once was the drill coordinated with the local fire department to test whether their system worked in conjunction with the school's. The principal just timed the exercise with a watch to see if everyone got out in the mandated time. I worked many years in developing regional EMS systems and the only way you know if your system works is to conduct a realistic exercise. I wonder how many schools have tested their "lock down" plans realistically or are they just paper exercises created by some school bureaucrats.
My kids school recently sent me an e-mail stating they do everything to protect my children.
So I fired an e-mail back asking when they allowed teachers and staff to have firearms.
Of course I got the standard reply “We are a gun free zone”
My reply “then your NOT doing everything you can to protect my child. Signs only stop people like me from carrying my legal weapon on to school grounds. They do not stop shooters intent on killing my kid”
I half expected a visit from the Sheriff. Either they didn’t call or they got the deputy that lives next door who would have said “well, he’s right!”
“Was the shooter (not going to mention his name because that is what he wanted)...”
I understand and agree with you about mentioning his name, but I don’t like the use of the term “shooter” here.
In the case of a similar situation, several on this forum would also be “shooters”, they might even be “active shooters”.
But they would be lawful shooters trying to stop and unlawful shooter.
Associating the term “shooter” only with maniacs or other people who do bad things will be detrimental to those on the pro gun side.
Simply plug the phrase “Adam Lanza blasted through the glass doors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School clutching a military-style Bushmaster rifle” or “fired approximately six shots into one of the school’s glass front doors” or “Lanza blasted his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary School, spraying bullets at the glass in one of the doors” into an Internet search engine.
But thankfully the secretary called 911 before locking herself and the nurse in the closet. I was stunned to find out that they were still in there 4 hours later in this age of cellphones everywhere.
What I want to know is what happen to the security guard?
I heard several times when they were talking about the new security features the school had implemented a couple of weeks ago, that there was now an armed security guard at the school.
Or was this another MSM ‘mistake’?
