She was rich and white. Why should Obama honor her?

from what i’m observing the libs are blaming her for this. It was she who owned those weapons and failed to keep them out of the hands of her psychotic spawn

I wonder who really sends out the Twit’s tweets. Probably some low rent staff member from one of Barry’s unions.

She was stupid and her actions allowed her psycho son to have access to weapons that he used to kill her and 26 other people. You want him to honor her?

At this point this mother is not looking all that great. You have a delusiional increasingly psychotic nut under your roof and you train him to shoot and have weapons around?

Not a good combo.

The details of this tragedy are constantly changing. So I don't really know the circumstances as to how the son got a hold of the guns. I'm not ready to vilify Mrs. Lanza yet.

So how do you know she “allowed” him to have access?

He was 20 years old and could gain access to whatever he wanted 1 way or the other short of being locked in a cell somewhere.

Nothing is going to take the memory of this loss from me. I will remember it for the rest of my life, and be terribly sorry it took place.

None the less, in my opinion nothing is gained at this point by continuing to focus on this event at the national level, and the more that takes place, it only serves to bolster the demand for more gun control, confiscation.

Obama is playing this for every ounce of energy he can get to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. I’m more than a little over that clown’s grand design. It’s time to stop feeding it.

No offense, but her landscaper is the one that said she took him to the range - that doesn’t make it so or that she “trained” him.

Maybe she had the guns locked in a safe and this kid figured out the combination or how to open it - the shooter was considered a genius.

I do believe the genius bit is overblown. Classmates have referred to how hard his mother pushed him and how hard he worked to do well academically. Then, he was only a mediocre student at a fourth-tier college, albeit slightly under-aged.

Exactly. I can’t fathom how she could have thought it wise to involve him in focusing on guns for even a moment. And there is no way she should have had guns in her home, if she didn’t have them in a gun safe. She basically committed suicide and took 27 other lives with her.

Sorry if this sounds heartless, but the tweet is for political purposes, same as the “national moment of silence”. It is what it is.

Let us remember Nancy Lanza.

She was a “prepper”, a “survivalist”, yes. She was a mother of a difficult child, who cared for her son.

She was not one that believed everything that our dear precious government has tried to tell her was true.

She believed in the ‘old ways’, ‘the ways before Obama’.
She believed that she knew what was best for her child, not the government.

If trouble came, she was preparing, to be able to fend for herself, and her son, and not, stand on the rooftop waving some flag for the FEMA helicopters to see. She believed in having extra food and resources, and the protection to keep what she has, which the DHS has deemed, as ‘possible terrorists’, these days.

She believed in ‘rugged individualism’, which in most urban areas, is considered anti-American, these days.

She should be remembered, yes.

And for those of us, who have not drank the Obama kool-aid, taken the Obama phone, and believe that America is worth returning to its glory, remember her with pride.

Yeah, not that anyone here does of course.

I lost all mine in a boating Kayaking accident.

The problems that cause this killing goes far beyond, Guns, Video Games, or the Mother. It shows our inability as a society to place blame where it is due and instead look for excuses and "What Could have been done" instead of "What SHOULD have been done"

The idiots who think that guns should be taken away from people with mentally ill family members aren’t going to like where that goes.

The mental health “profession” has basically declared all people to be mentally ill with conservatives at the top of the list. Hell I know they would start with the fact that I’m “anti social” because I keep to myself and rarely go to town and they could build a whole case from there.

Communist goal 20.Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

Communist goal 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

Finally Communist Goals 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

It's almost like there is a Rulebook for Radicals out there somewhere.

So how do you know she “allowed” him to have access?

It's not about what she did. It's about what she didn't do....preventing her deranged son that was living with her from gaining access to her firearms.

Thank you! I wondered if I was the only one who saw this tragedy that way. We don't know how the son got the guns, not even through the random and at least partially invented reports of the sloppy mainstream media. If he seemed "different" due to Asperger syndrome but not psychotic when she was teaching him to shoot, she might reasonably have seen that as a physical skill that could help him to develop overall. If he stabbed/clubbed her before taking the gun safe key that she kept secure, then again it would be hard to blame her. Both hypothetical situations are entirely my invention, but the media has to my knowledge reported almost nothing about what happened at their home. Either could be true and would, I believe, place her in the victim category rather than as someone reckless who endangered so many children.

I would distinguish between those who’d have the government take guns from such family members—and those who think such family members should be more prudent than this poor woman seems to have been.

Absolutely correct. According to the National Institute for Mental Health:

An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans ages 18 and older — about one in four adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year . . . the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion — about 6 percent, or 1 in 17 — who suffer from a serious mental illness.

If the far left fringe can ban those 26.2% and their families, or even the 6% and their extended families from owning firearms, they think they can disarm the country and finally gain the power they have wanted for generations.

The answer would be obvious to most. Do what you have to to keep your firearms from falling into the hands of incompetents living with you. If you need help understanding that see if there is anyone in your household that can help you

They made up for that omission by exploiting her as part of their war to increase taxes on all who work in this country.

Carney threw that in with his pitch that we need to support Obammie the Commie’s economic plan in part to keep funds available to single mothers of children with mental disabilities.

That was an out-and-out exploitation of the Sandy Hook murders to further their socialist agenda.

she's dead. Her son is dead. 20 children and a handful of other adults as well are dead. If she had it to do all over again, she would be able to figure out a way to keep her firearms secure. He's responsible for killing the people. She's responsible for not keeping her firearms secure. The connection between the two should be obvious.

We are conditioned into thinking that every detail of a crime will be revealed in less than 60 minutes, just like in a tv show. Real life isn't like that. We may never know for sure how this guy got a hold of his mother's firearms. Heck, given that the details about what weapons were used at the school have changed several times, do we even know for sure the weapons belonged to his mother? At this point I don't trust what the media has been telling us about this whole tragedy.

I know he’s been out of the home for a few years but I would love to know what the father has to say. He must have been kept abreast of this kid’s problems. Could be wrong, maybe the mother kept it all to herself.

No surprise, Vermont is the ultimate “Cum By Yah” State, having given birth to Vermonts Village Idiot, Dr. Howard Dean, AKA Deaniac, a man who is a walking abortion instead of performing them as demanded by his supporters,, Vermont must apologize to the entire phenomenal world continuously, including murderous perpetratators of the mass slaughter of innocents.

Then they have all their bases covered according to that way of liberal fascist thinking.Woe and betide anyone who leaves anyone out for any discriminatory reason, whether valid or not.
