I doubt there will ever be conclusive evidence one way or the other, but I also find it interesting that the author of the Huff story was written by the MOTHER of an Asperbergers child, while the kos link you posed is written by someone actually afflicted with the syndrome. I certainly lean towards the veracity of the Mother's assessment of the serious volatility of the condition....
It's important not to label all children or adults with Asbergers or autism as violent, or potential killers. Parents of these children face difficult challenges, I would guess that Lanza had some sort of psychotic breakdown, perhaps schizophrenic. We may never know what happened, the father and brother are cooperating and computer records have been subpoenaed.
Nevertheless, no one needs an assault weapon

The nutty evangelicals are the base. Look at the states where Tea Party candidates were elected to state offices. What did they legislate? Vaginal probes, personhood amendments, and defunding planned parenthood. You are stuck with them.
Drop that sh*t and they are all Democrats at the core.

The Republican base is fiscal conservatives, not the religious nutjobs. Time to gear campaigns to that reality and the turnout will improve.

I truly hope that this tragedy will result in the reintroduction of the assault weapons ban; it will be a start. No one needs an assault weapon. We should all write to our congress person.
Senator Feinstein (D-CA) wants to push an assault weapons ban.

Call back when she agrees to dismiss all her armed security personnel.

If you carry a gun all day, you're either a paranoid freak (likely), or it just makes you feel like a man (also likely).
As for the rest, it's all bullshit. L:ike everything else you've done here for years with various sockpuppets, all you know how to do is lie and make up stupid stories.
You live in a trailer park outside of Tuscon. You're not fooling anyone.
GO walk through a ghetto by yourself, to have to make an HONEST living-- with nothing but thieves and thugs drooling on every corner-and then say that-clueless loser NUTCASE.

When I asked my son’s social worker about my options, he said that the only thing I could do was to get Michael charged with a crime.“If he’s back in the system, they’ll create a paper trail,” he said.“That’s the only way you’re ever going to get anything done. No one will pay attention to you unless you’ve got charges.”
I don’t believe my son belongs in jail. The chaotic environment exacerbates Michael’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli and doesn’t deal with the underlying pathology. But it seems like the United States is using prison as the solution of choice for mentally ill people. According to Human Rights Watch, the number of mentally ill inmates in U.S. prisons quadrupled from 2000 to 2006, and it continues to rise -- in fact, the rate of inmate mental illness is five times greater (56 percent) than in the non-incarcerated population.

The kid in this story belongs in a secure institution. A misguided judicial system leaves a criminal charge as the only option.

Or you can let the kid go free and become a mass murderer.

While I agree on the former wholeheartedly, "good luck". No bans whatsoever will arise out of this (or any other) crime.
Banning video games would also increase academic performance by an order of magnitude.

That crap is a cancer on society with absolutely no redeeming virtues.

We need a compromise on this, second amendment yes but machine guns no. If cool heads prevail
I believe there has only been ONE person owning a legal full automatic (machine gun) that ever used it in a crime. Very few with a Concealed Carry Permit have ever used a gun in a crime. It would help if the people that want more gun laws new the difference in guns and what they are talking about.

I know because we actually want less government which is absurd to a right winger like you.
Yet you support raising taxes to maintain the size of government instead of emphasizing cutting government programs.

Many conservatives would support tax increases coupled with significant budget cuts to move toward a balanced budget.

However, in the current environment, the "fiscal cliff" is preferable to Obama's ridiculous plan.

They did run.
Only after it was all over and the police arrived.

Serious question: "lockdown" or "run like hell"?

There was an incident here on Friday night when two fugitives from an armed jewelry store robbery supposedly ran into a building at Cal State Fullerton. Police "locked down" the campus, refusing to let students leave the building and surrounding the building with heavily-armed paramilitary cops on overtime. After several hours, they finally figured out that the bad guys weren't there.

My point is that the "lockdown" theory is promoted by cops to help get the bad guys, not to protect innocent civilians.

In conneticut, I believe there are. I know for a fact Cho at Virginia Tech wasnt supposed to be able to purchase firearms. He ommitted psychiatric condition info on his application forms, yet the red flag was NOT raised and, well you know the rest....
Why leave it up to the applicant to report his medical condition?

Why not have his psychiatric history on file when he applies for a permit, to at least be considered?

You know what else is a cancer on society--negative this..negative that..nothing but negative negative negative--mostly said by IDIOTS with a lack of ANYTHING better to do, and only to try and bolster their own pathetically skewed UNideals and stunted, unredemptive egos.
Nasty- disatisified w/their own messes of their OWN life mistakes...all they can do then-is be nasty to others.

At the rate things are going, this nation just might have to start keeping (WELL) armed security guards in schools and businesses.

Fenris would probably have them all licking boots instead--except for the female ones-whom he'd probably prefer to be turning mattresses and scrubbing commodes daily-for a penny to his 100 an hour.
