I call BS: Connecticut shooter's father in "disbelief".

You may be in shock over what your kid did, but not "disbelief". You know your kid and what he might have been capable of, dude!

There should be a law mandating parents report their kids for entry into the "no gun possession" database if they suspect the kid might go off!

Father of suspected Connecticut shooter "in state of disbelief"

. . . another source of the gun-violence problem. "My sweet Johnny is just . . . different." No, ma'am, if he has no friends AT ALL, then he's potentially a ticking time-bomb! Get him some help, and alert the authorities to keep a close eye on him!

#1 this seems to have been a very divided family. The brother Ryan said he had not even seen his brother in two years. We don't even know the last time the father saw the son. Adam was 20 years old. It's not like he was a little kid and the father had visitation rights or something.

#2 if the father had known ... what could he have done? It would have been his word against the mother's?

I see only one point of responsibility here - for those guns being in the house and within Adam's reach.

The mother is clearly responsible for that. We would have to know more about whether the father was okay with those guns being in the house.

30. "Any parent"


You seem to believe that all parents are somehow alike. They are not. When you talk about "all parents", you also have to include parents who are physically and sexually abusive to their children. How much control over those children, when they become adults, do you want abusive parents to retain over the life of that adult who is fortunate to get away from them?

I'm sure many of our LGBT members will be happy to tell you how much control over their lives their parents should be allowed to exert.

So, to be clear, what you want to be able to do is that when a child comes out to their parents as gay, and the parents are upset, then they should be able to have that kid locked up by saying he or she is dangerous.

Is that correct?

36. I don't think it's so simple

For one thing, you can't just rathole all of these kids into one common set of traits. Even if it is true that however you're qualifying true parents should be able to recognize psychopathy, that doesn't mean they could just as accurately diagnose the other pathologies that drive these things. Aspergers is not one of the things that drive violence any more than the general population from what I've read of expert opinions on the subject. We have no idea what, if any analysis he was given and what those professional diagnoses were. There's lots of unknowns here. Conjecture over parents of whom one was herself a victim just doesn't seem prudent to me at this point.

You should not presume anything. I read on a thread here the suggestion that the mother isolated their son from the father. It's very possible she is more responsible for this tragedy than the father.

Different guns for different kinds of shooting. You don't hunt ducks with a pistol. You don't shoot clays with rifle kind of thing.

I tried to layout the different kinds of gun owners here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/117293860

Looks like two pistols, the Bushmaster, two historical rifles and two shotguns. That is not what a prepper would have, especially not one with that kind of income.

8. Partly agree

I partly agree, because if not the parents then who is responsible. I hear too often that you can't blame the parents. I don't agree with that.

However, in this case, the son did not live with the father. It's a great shame that he didn't. Because he didn't live with him, there were probably very complicated family dynamics at work. Divorce and inner family politics can distance people and also disempower one parent.

25. Do you have to have a personal reference when you apply for a gun registration?

I really don't know.
I know when my husband and I got married and he was under 21 years old, at the time, he
had to have a personal reference sign that they knew both of us for at least two years.
His aunt signed the affidavit and his parents had to give permission, also.

I don't know how this would work with gun registration, but if a person declares they are of
sound mind and then it is shown they are not, then
they should be arrested and jailed or fined for lying under oath.
And just like with driver's licenses the permit should have to renewed every year, two years, etc.
and questions asked at each renewal.

31. Bottom line ...

For me, the bottom line on this issue and who I blame is the mother. She sounds like she was a rich, paranoid person who spent more time with guns than in getting her son help.

A point that seems to be overlooked is that Adam knew how to load those guns with ammunition and he knew how to shoot them. Someone taught him. That mother taught him how to use those guns.

We don't know what the relationship between Adam and his father was or even if there was a relationship.

Adam may have been an adult but he was a dependent adult and he lived with her.

Regarding the father, I would have to know more. Was he concerned at all that this woman kept these weapons in the house with the son there? Could he have done something about it?

So for me, it boils down to the question of where the money came from. Did Nancy Lanza have her own money? Or did her husband pay alimony?

If I were a man paying alimony and that much money was being spent on weapons, I would do something about it.

He was talking a very strong drug, FDA-approved only for treating schizophrenia, called Fanapt that's on record for causing psychosis in many patients. One of it's listed possible side effects is "Mood or behavioral changes, or thoughts of hurting yourself or others."

62. The mother was very hostile towards the father

Their breakup began in 2008 and they were divorced in 2009. THat is about the time that the mother took Adam out of school and Adam attended college in 2008-9.

A major cause of the breakup was likely how to deal with Adam, now that Ryan had left for college.

It looks like the father was not welcome in Newtown, and that he resigned himself to continuing his career and starting a new life while providing $250,000 / year alimony.

66. Alimony is designed to preserve the standard of living of both parties as when the were married

He seems to be making just shy of $1M/year now. He could have been making $500 K now. AFAIK, alimony is deductible for the payer and taxable income to the receipient.

70. WHATEVER!!

I am all for stricter gun laws but this is ABSURD! So, I guess every child with any sign of mental instability would have to be locked away or heavily drugged according to your logic or the parents would face prison? I doubt even the parents of the most mentally ill in the country would be hard pressed to turn their own children into authorities as a potential mass killers!

Check your emotions with some REASON.
