CNN) -- Police released new documents related to the shootings last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, but a motive for the attack by the troubled young man remained elusive.
Included in the information released Thursday is the report that a gun safe was found in the bedroom of 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who took guns belonging to his mother, Nancy, and shot her in her forehead in her bed. Then he went to the school in Newtown, where he gunned down 20 children and six staff members before killing himself.
Investigators found more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition in the house, and a holiday card with a check "made out to Adam Lanza for the purchase of a C183 (firearm), authored by Nancy Lanza," according to a search warrant.

"Call of Duty" is a computer-based war game.

Sixteen hundred rounds of ammo? Big deal. Boy, the media sure are a bunch of breathless bedwetters.
The gas ran out, so the media are now pushing it as far as they can with this tragedy.
Not even close to the 1.3 billion rounds the DHS recently purchased.
That's three bricks and a couple of boxes of .22.
A couple of years ago that wouldn't even have been $50 worth of ammo.
His mother would have bought anything he wanted and passed CT’s background check with flying colors. The ex-con who shot the corrections chief in CO last week had a woman buy the gun for him. She had no problem getting it for him.
This background check legislation is simply a stalking horse for the federal government’s attempt to disarm Americans. It has next to nothing to do with preventing mass shootings by young men hopped up on mind-alterning medications prescribed by doctors.
I’m a little confused by a report this morning, which said that all victims died via .223 rounds fired by a Bushmaster. I thought the Bushmaster was not in the building.
What is the real truth on this? What is the most reliable source?
Another piece of the story that makes no sense.If Lanza was so clearly disturbed as he has been made out to be then his mother had no business arming him the way she did.
Bushmaster in the building. A poster on this site claims to have connections to a emergency service person who knows guns who was on the scene who claims that 5.56 Nato rounds were found
Bushmaster can fire that round
His mom was even more moronic than I assumed.
What is the real truth on this? What is the most reliable source?
first they said he used a handgun...with the AR in the trunk....
later it was, he used the AR. sounds like the handguns did not fit their modus operandi for what kind of guns they wanted to ban first....
This story has been engraved in lead and will not be changed or modified by authorities...ever. We will never know what really happened and how many really died that day.
What was the purpose of saying he had his own gun safe? What was in it? I have more than 1600 22lr rounds myself. What does 1600 of something have to do with anything? I know less now than I did. Why is CNN allowed to broadcast?
This background check legislation is simply a stalking horse for the federal governments attempt to disarm Americans.
Yep. Leftist extremist so-called "gun control" has always been about two things:
1.) Expressing the leftist extremists' hatred of the Second Amendment and all of us who believe it means exactly what it says.
2.) Disarming the commoners for the sake of state security.
I suspect that his mother was afraid of him to the point that she would give him anything he demanded.
A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.
Also the gun in the trunk was a Saiga shotgun.
AP via TIC sez it was in the glove compartment......pretty big glove compartment
...just heard it again on top of the hour Fox radio news:
” both he and his mother had certificates from the NRA”
certificate of what?
Do we ever get a list from the media of all eco-terrorists who were Sierra Club members or had Algore’s book or DVD?
We must BAN gun safes!!!! Immediately for the children you know...
I think the mother was in the process of having the little POS commited and the process was in motion.
I also think the state has the paper work some where and is sitting on it.It may be some of the info NOT released today.
I also think the kid was aware of this and decided to take out the mom and make the history books.
He wasnt going to be commmited.
There is a place to coment at WTIC if you like
if the more ammo you have, the more dangerous you are,
DHS are the most dangerous folks on the planet.
That would probably get me added to a list of gun nuts somewhere. I’ll pass, and leave them to their stupidity.
She was trying to get help. The info surfaced right after the shooting and then just vanished into thin air.
A 12 gauge in the glove compartment? With 70 rounds in two magazines? I know that’s right.
What threw up a red flag for me was the medical examiner said they were shot with .223 rounds and none were through and through wounds. I find that really hard to believe at that close range for impact.” Something stinks in the state of Connecticut”
Maybe, but if I was afraid of someone, the last thing I would give them is a gun.
You got to have one hell of a glove compartment to put 70 12 gague shotgun shells. Bet, it was written for the slaves edification, so who cares about truthfulness as long as it sounds good.
It is like the term,”Territoral Imperative”. It means whatever the sayer says it means.
Future mass murderers will be found wearing an NRA hat,carrying ammo in an NRA logo bag and have their NRA ‘certificate’ in their glove box.
Plus a signed letter from Wayne LaPierre telling them they rock at “Call of Duty” .And they will find a signed letter from Sarah Palin saying the shooter’s mom should be awarded “Mom of the year”.
Seems to me they (who know what they are, TPTB for now) just want to confuse the public continuously. Even after four months.
Is it because the original reports shortly after the shooting were incorrect but entrenched in public minds? Even the official ‘official reports’ have some inconsistencies between them.
I know close to nothing what officially happened that day.
some indigenous peoples believe it can steal your soul.
Since DHS is getting approx 21,000 rounds per each of their 70,000 agents allegedly for target practice what is the big deal about 1600 rounds for two people?
See post #33.
Those C183s should be banned.
So who bought them? Is this to dispute the ‘registration wouldn’t have stopped Lanza’ argument?
We will never know. This has been ridiculous from the start. NONE OF IT MAKES SENSE. How many bullets did they he fired within like 10 minutes?
Got a link for that? I haven't heard that.
Bushmaster in the building and used for all the killings. Lanza committed suicide with the Glock 10MM he was carrying. Out in the car was the Saiga 12 ga shotgun (which has an AR15-like appearance to the casual observer). That similarity between the Saiga 12 and an AR-15 has spawned LOTS of rumors. The “glove box” reference in the recent article is simply crap and must be the result of seconding some foreign press version of the story.
So he walked around that school, shot 27 people in less than five minutes??
A Mossberg Mdl 183D-C is a .410 lever action shotgun....
“What is the most reliable source?”
“The police found a loaded 12-gauge shotgun in the passenger compartment of the car the shooter drove to the school. The shotgun was moved by police from the passenger compartment of the car to the trunk for safekeeping.”
That many kids in one classroom. It is more than doable with 1911 and swapping 7 rd magazines.
I don't get how he could have shot just 1 kid. His brand of psychosis is very disturbing.
1,600 rounds? LOL. I have that sitting on the kitchen counter. Just haven’t put it away yet.
Thought it was the Brownie that would do that.
