What was the nature of the "altercation" the day prior?
I really look forward to knowing more about this. I’m wondering now if the personality disorder wasn’t Narcissism. Folks like that get absolutely outraged over any personal slight, from what I’ve seen. They have this “How dare you offend me, I will show you what happens when you offend ME...”
I’m very curious to know the nature of this “altercation” as well. Fortunately, the fourth person is still around to tell the tale. Smells like a motive.
There’s nothing worse than a person who bears a grudge.
And now we enter the phase known as “filling in the blanks” when we find out that it was some horrible “gun nut” that wanted to just take out a random school, but a known headcase that had contact with the school before, and committed a number of thefts and a murder in order to get to the point where he went on his spree.
Look at all the “laws” and people that failed to stop this. How would some more help?
Look which network gets that scoop, as a reward for being good little stenographers for the admin...
So they did not beef up security after the altercation ? Sounds like Benghazi.
Probably won't stop the Gestapo from outlawing scary black rifles.
Does it matter?
The law worked as intended. But he found an alternate source,
his mother after he killed her.
America's law abiding gun owning citizens will be persecuted for his actions.
I realllly want to hear the voice and see the FACE of the person claiming he TRIED to buy a gun but could NOT.
No evidence that it’s a lie, but such a story would have the effect of validating waiting periods, and with regard to guns this administration has a historically unprecedented level of lying.
I’ll bet this is a lie —I’ll bet he made no rejected attempt to buy.
“The gunman in the Newtown massacre had an “altercation” with four staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School the day before...”
Was Adam Lanza under private care of school psychologist, Mary Sherlach?
Got scared last night because my wife came home from work and said that maybe we (Americans) should start looking at some gun control legislation.
This shooting spooked her in a brand new way.
This is a southern bell who is pro-gun, pro-hunting, and pro-self defense in all of its forms. She’d be cool if I brought home claymores.
We had a great discussion and I convinced her that we should not surrender our Constitutional Rights because 0.01% of the population are certifiably insane and that any gun legislation at this point in our political reality would be un-wise, short-sighted, and probably dangerous.
What this incident shows is not that guns are too easy to get — it shows the horrible state of our mental health system in America at the private and public levels. THAT’s the real story here.
They hired school psychologists, and then added more!
But all their Vain Actions were those of Blind Fools.
THE Only reason for failure: removing prayer and God from their schools!
If he had any type of mental issues (which he obviously did), shouldn’t his mother have kept her guns locked or locked up and HIDDEN THE KEY? She failed miserably in not keeping her guns locked up, given her sons mental instability. EVERYONE should keep their firearms locked up and HIDE THE KEY (and ONLY the person the guns are registered to knows where the key(s) are just in case they’re stolen if not for any other reason!!
So. Have we had enough psychotropic-induced massacres yet?
So. Have we had enough psychotropic-induced massacres yet?
Been there, spent time in jail for defending myself, would do the same again.
This POS should have been immobilized either right after his altercation or at his gun purchase attempt. This kind of trash is allowed to continue their BS until they kill someone.
The whole pansy a$$ system is broken. The psycho should have been dealt with before he was able to kill.
First, there are already more than 20,000 gun control laws actively on the books today and none of them prevented this tragedy. Second, millions upon million of people in America own guns and 99.9999% of them have never and will never do anything like this.
So, lets lose the hysteria and analyze the facts - a PERSON did this, NOT a hunk of steel. In Portland, a PERSON killed two people in the mall, NOT a hunk of steel! In Denver, a PERSON shot up the theater, NOT a hunk of steel!!
NONE of these facts will matter to the gun-grabbing nanny-staters, because they focus solely on the gun and nothing else. So, what happens if ALL guns are outlawed and forcibly collected by the feds? Someone bent on committing mass murder may turn to knives, hatchets, chainsaws or machetes. So, we outlaw those. The next person to commit a heinous crime may use a bat, poison, poison gas or a semi-tractor. And the one after that may use a car, a pen or pencil, a rock, his hands . . . . . . so when do we blame the PERSON and NOT the inanimate weapon!???
The fact remains that until the left understands that murdering humans by ANY means including their favorite method, abortion, human life will be valueless and more copycats will come out to exercise their demented mass murder of innocent people.
All of that said, it occurs to me that the gun-grabbers are from the leftist school of complete control. What that means is that if 1 person commits a gun crime then, under the leftist theory of the “collective” and “groupthink”, they believe that ALL gun owners will commit mass murder unless they eliminate guns (good luck with that!). So, the calls for more gun control by the left after these incidents is twofold - eliminate the “balance of power” the Founding Fathers so carefully wove into the Constitution and gain total control over the people.
Another part that affects all of this is the fact that laws, whether gun laws, robbery laws, or whatever, are written solely to affect law-abiding citizens. People who commit crimes are called “outlaws” and criminals because they DON’T adhere to the laws created to control or stop their illegal activities.
So, should the left create additional gun control laws, will it prevent the next gun-related crime? Of course not. Laws only affect those of us who obey them. Those who disregard the law won’t be stopped from committing whatever crime they want to commit.
As a final note, Adam Lanza did not own the guns he used to murder all of the people at Sandy Hook Elementary. They were his mother’s guns and they were all legally purchased and registered. Which begs the question, what will any NEW gun control laws accomplish?
