The weapons used in Fridays shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., were legally purchased and registered to Nancy Lanza, the mother of the gunman, Adam Lanza, two law enforcement officials told NBC News.

This obviously proves that we need more gun laws, right?
How about a law against GUN FREE ZONES and allowing citizens to carry concealed EVERYWHERE.
You never hear about any “massacres” at gun stores or ranges, do you?
I really don't need a sarc tag, do I?
There was a pubic school graduate that shot a clerk at a gun store in Indianapolis a while back. He was room temperature when he left the store.
Well, it’s OBVIOUS to all that MOTHERS should be banned! Let the Government raise your children, cradle to grave, and this kind of stuff wouldn’t be happening! *SMIRK*
Another mass murder enabled by the Democrat Party/Liberals/RINO’s via making sure no potential victim has means of defense.
So when a nut case with whatever weapon attacks, the nut case is free to kill until the bullets run out.
All authors of gun-bans should be charged with murder anytime a “gun free zone” or related is the site of a mass killing.
And in other news, the Governments, starting with NYC’s Bloomberg should disarm all cops and politician’s body guards, to unilaterally set a good example. After all, we all KNOW that if the law abiding (I’m being very, very generous and perhaps delusional to include the political class in that category) disarms, the nut cases and criminals will be inspired do also disarm.
(Standing O from Democrat voters....)
It’s likely the guns were community property at stake in the divorce.
If so, the divorce might have been messy, as lawyers know men are HIGHLY emotional about guns.
The wife getting something so personal and male suggests to me that her lawyer was very aggressive about, “sticking it to him”.
And Israel has more would-be terrorists per square block than any other place on earth.
So he stole the guns from his mother......he broke the law and illegally obtained guns to commit the murders.....yep more gun control would have solved that.
Just wait and see, all the liberals are going to make such an emotional issue of this event, lead by Comrade O’bummer, Nancy Polecat and Harry Inbreed that they will try to pass a law making all guns illegal, just like in Europe.
I think this was a copy-cat shooting following the mall-shooting outside Portland Oregon. The young thug tried to do it better.
Actually suicide rates at gun ranges are high. Lots of ranges won’t rent a gun to a single person who they don’t know.
Our SeeBS channel out of Birmingham has been running SeeBS news continuously with this only. It is sickening how they are running this event. I doubt seriously we will see a breaking headline out of them that the guns were legally purchased. This is the FOLLY of gun control. The bad guys have guns. They are NOT going to turn them in. Regardless of how they got them. Most probably illegally, stolen, etc. All you have to do is what TV and COPS and see all the stolen guns they come up with on traffic stops. I agree that homeowners should lock up weapons, I do, just to prevent theft if we are gone. But, the bad guys will have guns and the cops will not have enough people to protect us. My cousin is the sheriff of this county. I live out in the county. He told me it would take THIRTY (30) minutes to get a car to me in an emergency, if one was not close by already. 30 MINUTES. I would be long dead if I were not armed. Simple. I am not giving up my guns.
And stored them in a manner that allowed her personality disordered son to have access to them. And thats being charitable,, my suspicion is that she was most likely a straw purchaser for him, and bought them for him because he was too young.
Ever since teachers and older students were allowed to carry arms there has not been any school shootings there.
I wonder what was going on with the mother. As Charles Krauthammer expressed on Fox last night he must of had intense rage against how mom. He kills her first thing then goes kills her pupils and co workers. There had to be previous outbursts...
So why’d she leave all these guns around that he could get a hold of?
That looks like an M1 Carbine. I would have expected an M4 or maybe a Galil.
Perhaps the teachers get second hand weapons and the new stuff is reserved for active IDF.
Anyway, I had a couple of the Universal M1 Carbine knock offs, and they were accurate, reliable weapons.
Their overall quality was not the best, but they worked.
Actually, I’ve been active with guns for decades. I can’t think of a single case where a suicide was committed in a gun range. I know ranges are inquisitive about new shooters to their range and want to know if they know about safety etc. but I also haven’t seen anyone who’s willing to answer questions and fill out paperwork refused, either.
I’m not saying I don’t believe you - I just have not seen or heard of it until now. The only way I can see this being the case if the suicidee doesn’t own a gun and goes to a range to rent one to shoot. If I owned a weapon and wanted to off myself, I’d do it in the comfort of my home.
The M1 Carbine replaced the Garand for standard issue in WWII, particularly in the Pacific Front. I own 4 of them and they aren’t pea shooters, despite how they look.
