Probe of Newtown shooter Adam Lanza focusing on murderer’s ‘psychotic break’ and unlocked guns

ugh. that is my only comment.

“He would act like a child. He would scream and shout when she brought up getting out of the house (instead of) spending hours and hours playing video games,” the friend said.

...


Despite the warning signs, in the months before the massacre, Nancy Lanza didn’t secure her arsenal, which included the Bushmaster XM-15 used by her son in the slaughter, along with a 10-mm. Glock handgun, a 9-mm SIG Sauer handgun and four rifles.

“They weren’t under lock and key,” said the friend, who last saw the guns months before the Dec. 14 rampage. “She kept her stuff (the guns) all together in a closet.”

...

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said the importance of securing weapons is “well recognized by responsible gun owners.”

If Nancy Lanza’s failure to secure her guns played a role in the Newton tragedy, he said, “Maybe it serves as a lesson for people who may not follow those basic rules of safety that responsible gun owners follow.”

1. The sad truth is it will beome more and more clear that America has a drug problem.

From the link:

The friend couldn’t provide the police with any new information.

“He was on some serious medications to help deal with his issues, but (Nancy) never told me what they were or if he stopped taking them,” the friend said.

There are 300 million guns across America and yu can bet Millions of them unsecured. Hell, Guys are walking around with them tucked into their belts at the local 7/11.

Guns, Drugs and Lawyers. Want to add to the list?

I could write a song.

4. the cops must have found some pill bottles or something..receipts?

i guess that's protected by HIPPA?

isn't it little weird that ads for asthma medicine say they will make you suicidal ON TV, but there's no way to keep guns away from people on heavy prescription drugs?

you have to get a card from the dept. of health in some places to grow medical MJ, but not own a gun?

wha?

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Just about every two weeks, according to state Sen. Andrew Lanza, someone dies on Staten Island of a prescription drug overdose.

2. Oh it's "the friend".

So that settles it!

I'll wait for a press conference from the people doing the investigation.

3. and a Senator

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said the importance of securing weapons is “well recognized by responsible gun owners.”

If Nancy Lanza’s failure to secure her guns played a role in the Newton tragedy, he said, “Maybe it serves as a lesson for people who may not follow those basic rules of safety that responsible gun owners follow.”


i know the NY Daily news can be sketchy, but...

as much as it sucks, i had a feeling it was like that...
