Lanza Beaten by Sandy Hook Classmates: Source

Posted on 04/17/2013 9:31:50 AM PDT by Morgana

(Newser) – The New York Daily News calls it an "exclusive" and the Huffington Post calls it a "possible motive": As a child, Adam Lanza was bullied and even beaten by his fellow students at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a relative of Nancy Lanza tells the Daily News. Nancy Lanza was so angry over the situation and her perception that teachers ignored the abuse that she considered a lawsuit, the relative claims. "She was convinced the school wasn't doing enough to protect Adam. It made her irate."

In the family member's telling, Nancy would ask Adam, who came home "with bruises all over his body," what happened, but he would not respond. "He would just sit there," the relative says. At one point, Nancy even accompanied him to school to try and catch his classmates attacking him. The relative says Adam seemed to have emotional problems after his time at Sandy Hook. (Meanwhile, more details have emerged on why the gun shop that sold to Nancy Lanza lost its license.)

If he had Aspergers, as some speculated, being passive while being beaten is within normal behaviour of somebody having Aspergers, just so that you know.

The real meat of the article is to see why they took the dealers license away.

And then you have to ask the question...Why did the ATF let him off the hook 500 times? (Might be a very rich ATF dude out there. Almost like a protection racket.

Of course, bullying is another current pet subject of the loony left, so this is a surefire win-win for them!

When I was in grammar screwell I gave a well deserved shiner to kid who tried to bully me. He later joined his father in the lucrative New York City trash removal industry. He was latter convicted of “manslaughter” in the killing of a business associate.

Some years later he was convicted for racketeering, for various violations of law. One thing he did was represent his company as a licensed bio-waste removal company, when he had no such license and merely disposed of bio-waste in the normal trash flow. Paging Dr. Gosnell. He also was charged with intimidating both customers and competitors of his commercial trash disposal businesses (there were several), which were branded as “environmental” contractors. So, the environmental mafia is real. The government complaint against him included descriptions of him and his “associate” barging into victims’ offices and “explaining” things to them.

Pardon me, if I skip my grammar screwell reunions.

Then he killed her, too. A whole bunch of innocent people. Makes no sense to me.

I could see someone flipping out and killing a tormenter or two or three. But none of the dead ever did a thing to him. So it's hard for me to buy this explanation that he was picked on. He was just evil and now, I hope, he resides in Hell.

Not that this in any way whatsoever justifies what Lanza did, but if true, makes it all the more tragic. :(

Did the kid leave you alone after you popped him?

Can't remember the name of a movie but I saw it years ago. Might have even been a Clint Eastwood flick.

A bunch of high school boys gang rape this gal at a party which gets out of control. A few years later, she methodically tacks them down one by one and puts a bullet in them. Clint, the detective, is in hot pursuit of these multiple seemingly random murders and discovers the link just before she kills the last guy, the only one of the group who had turned into a semi-worthwhile human being. He tries to buy her off to no avail.

Clint arrests her shortly thereafter, hears her side of the story, tosses the murder weapon into a trash can and lets her go.

There was an FFL here in Maryland with at least that many violations. Usually when you get volume like that the FFL failed to keep his firearms records up-to-date and they count each error as a violation. They normally only catch this kind of record violations when you turn in your FFL and record books or in the event of an audit.

The article also mentions that he released firearms before the background checks had come in. This might not be exactly what it seems. I can't speak for CT, but here in MD we had a period of time when the State Police advised FFLs that since a 7 day waiting period was te letter of the law, they could release a handgun to the customer after 7 days even in the absence of a completed state background check. The State Police later reversed their policy, but not before some FFLs had released handguns with incomplete background checks. (The current wait here is 40-60 days, BTW.)

Man, and I thought it sucked buying a handgun in Maryland in the 80’s.

I frequent 2 shops here in NM that have been in business over 40 years each. Both sell considerable numbers and manage to keep the paperwork right. Never had a audit that was less than 100% correct. It’s all about having a system and sticking to it.

He was a LOT bigger than me, about a head taller. It happened while we were waiting outside church on Sunday. Monday, he didn't show up for school, came in late with a patch over his eye, marched over to his desk, got some books and marched out. I was summoned to the Mother Superior's office where I was confronted by mother superior and his mother. The mother superior, having only heard his ex parte pleading, immediately fell upon me. I made my presentation, convincingly I believe, and she reconsidered. There was one witness who happened to be both a friend of my assailant, and a fellow pisano. Mother Superior had me recite my account in front of his mother and herself, and then asked the witness if that was what he saw. His friend supported my account (that he instigated the confrontation). The mother superior looked at us, and at that time noticed that I was a head shorter and not known as a bully or scrapper and told me to return to class.

I wish I could say that that was the end of it. His father who had a professional reputation as a bully to defend called my house threatening my father, who was 5' 6" and 120 pounds, with grievous bodily harm and lawsuits. I don't recall Mr. Puzo employing vignettes about mob enforcers threatening someone with lawsuits because their kid got a shiner, but I know of one case where it actually occurred. I would find it amusing if it didn't happen to me. I think the guy's wife probably went all mafia wife apeshit on him.

Yeah, it used to be a hassle buying a pistol here. Now it is a marathon. And with the new law you can forget about getting the most popular modern firearms here after October (although they missed plenty of less popular ones).

There's no excuse at all for sloppy books. But it is probably the explanation for the large number of FFL violations.

It’s just insane there.

In NM it’s fill out the 4473, show your driver’s license and away you go. Did 3 in one afternoon at the height of my S&W collecting. Maybe 30 minutes total time.

Here’s our Governor at the range.

One of the complaints was selling ammo to a felon. Do they have to do background checks for ammo sales in CT?

Cases where someone uses violence to get “even” with being bullied has the perp targeting those he/she feels wronged by. In this case, Lanza attacked innocent five and six year olds that he had never had any contact with. Being bullied, even if he was, didn’t drive Lanza to shoot up a classroom full of Kindergarteners.

Heh, that is even quicker than VA. I could never seem to get the transaction down to under an hour in VA. They always had to hang on the phone forever. But the waiting period here in MD is the pits.

That’s why he killed himself, I bet.
