Posted on 01/24/2013 9:19:43 AM PST by Uncle Chip
The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission will begin its grim work Thursday with an update on the police investigation into the Newtown, Conn. school massacre and presentations on the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings.
According to the Hartford Courant, 16 experts, appointed by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, will convene for the first of a series of meetings to review the Dec. 14 mass killing last year and propose improvements to current policies related to student safety, gun violence, and mental health.
On Dec. 14, a lone gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 20 children and six adults before taking his own life. Only the 2007 school shooting at Virginia Tech, where 32 students and staff members were killed, resulted in a greater loss of life caused by a single shooter.
The panel's first witness will be Danbury Assistant State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky, who will give one of the few official statements about the police investigation.
The Courant reported that former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, who was Denver district attorney at the time of the 1999 Columbine attack and a member of the Columbine Review Commission, will also speak. He will be joined by the University of Virginia's Richard Bonnie, a consultant to the Virginia Tech Review Panel and chairman of the Virginia Commission on Mental Health Law Reform.
The meeting, to be broadcast live on the Connecticut Network, coincides with the introduction of federal gun control legislation in Washington.
Members of the Connecticut delegation, along with congressional leaders, will propose banning assault weapons and ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds.
"There is a fight coming,'' Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat, told the Courant.

Watching the presser on C-SPAN 3 now.
Forget the barf bag. Better make it a 55 gallon drum.
Maybe we’ll find out if it was a rifle or a pistol.
Yeah. And, THEY'LL be completely impartial, right?
The coverup is on. Where are the independent experts on this panel? Same old gun grabbers.
“Sandy Hook Panel Set to Begin Review of School Shooting”
Because, ya know, there have been so many more important things going on....
Like the pres’ent’s coronation and all....
The Department O’ “Justice” needed time to write the script for this “proceeding”.
Let’s see the weapons. Bullet holes in the glass, walls. Show us the AR-15, the clips, the cartridges. How did Lanza’s mother have a legally-owned AR-15 in CT when they were outlawed in CT? Maybe we should ask Mike and Laurie Phelps? Oh, excuse me, I mean professional crisis actor Jennifer Sexton (Greenberg)?? Oh well, who cares. What’s the difference anyway?
Here's the brightest of them.
Has any surveillance footage been released to the public? I personally don’t want to see anything graphic, just wanted to know if any of it’s been publicly released?
There is another Batman movie that has the word Aurora on it.
Bloomberg has a connection to this event through a mother at the school.
One of the things this group should do is tell the Monsignor at St Rose of Lima that he better make sure his own kids are okay during a lockdown instead of going somewhere else.
“How did Lanzas mother have a legally-owned AR-15 in CT when they were outlawed in CT? “
There is an easy answer for this one but Too technical for me.
There are certain specifications that have to be met before it is banned.
I saw an interesting article about how manufacturers get around bans. Like modifying part of the gun so it gets around the banned part of a State’s law.
You can count on that, Chris.
Supposedly the newly installed system wasn’t working that day.
Likely there is nothing of value on the hard drive. The issue with the hard drive is just mis-direction.
Websites he visited are on the ISP logs, not on his computer.
Contacts with others, using EMAIL, are on server logs, not on his computer. Nothing that he wrote or received from anyone is on his computer, unless he specifically 'saved' it to his hard drive.
If you use email, YOUR 'mail' is not stored on your hard drive.
Probably had the same kind of 'failure' as the VIDEO system at the LAS VEGAS COSTCO.
very very weird interview with the Barber of Adam Lanza
You read my mind!
