The documents85 pages of affidavits, search warrants and lists of tems seized from the car and Newtown home Lanza shared with his mother, Nancypaint a chilling picture of the killer who had been stockpiling weapons in the weeks and months leading up to the Dec. 14 massacre.
According to the search warrant, when officers arrived at the school, they discovered Lanza "dressed in military style clothing, wearing a bullet proof vest lying deceased on the floor in the middle classroom." He "was in possession of several handguns as well as a military style assault weapon."

ABCNews radio just announced - with some bit of glee - that they discovered an NRA “certificate” in his room. Whatever that is.
The media... it’s just embarrassing.
Ah, yes. Let’s do everything we can to drum up emotion again...
Exactly what constitutes an “Arsenal”?
Shredding the Constitution, it’s seventh heaven for the left... what a rush of power!
A usurper communist as president, gun control, homosexual marriage, socialized healthcare, unlimited spending, expansion of government and welfare, debasing of the currency, weakening of military strength, ever increasing restrictions of personal liberties, and on and on and on.
Media code word and any number greater than zero.
I thought the weapons belonged to his mother.
This makes it sound like he bought the guns and ‘stockpiled’ them, himself.
His mother had a tremendous amount of culpability in this. Just looking at his photo, it’s clear he didn’t need to be NEAR weapons and she should have been more responsible.
Go ahead, flame me.
Either it was a very short shotgun or a very wide glove compartment. Of course, the third option is that the AP writers are morons.
The AP story no longer mentions this "fact."
An “arsenal” is a picture of one or more guns, having actual guns is not necessarily a factor in declaring that an “arsenal” has been found. Old partly eaten poptarts that are L shaped also count toward a person having an arsenal. And don’t forget to count all of the 2 inch high plastic toy soldiers one might find.
I want me one of them there "C183 Firearms," too!!
"zero"? zero is not an arsenal, he's an epidemic.
Odd. They didn’t mention any prescriptions.. /s
And they’re withholding the gun serial numbers. Huh?
Correction: “American” media.....its just embarrassing”.
that’s why I don’t watch it anymore. 98% opinion 2% massaged facts with made up statistics.
Why should we believe ANYTHING from Big Media?
Despite heavy help from Bloomberg and the media they are still losing traction on gun control.
So was the “arsenal” his, or his mom’s?
a single mother. video games. a (drugged up?) boy living alone as shutin. all part of the leftist’s culture of death. but they can’t see the horror in their own mirror.
