Newtown shooter motivated by Norway massacre, sources say

Source: CBS

Law enforcement sources say Adam Lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer.

Sources say Lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011.

Breivik killed eight with a bombing in downtown Oslo. He then moved to a nearby island where hunted down and fatally shot 69 people, mostly teenagers attending a summer camp.

Two officials who have been briefed on the Newtown, Conn., investigation say Lanza wanted to top Breivik's death toll and targeted nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School because it was the "easiest target" with the "largest cluster of people."

Other than the Newtown shooter breaking numerous laws in his heinous crime, what laws could have stopped him? Connecticut has an assault weapons ban and that did not help in this situation. What law would have prevented this crime?

Correct statement :

Left wing nut job Newton shooter motivated by Norway massarace. Why do liberals try to blame anything but the SHOOTER ? To be exact, Norway the liberal country has no deth penalty. The killer gets 25 yrs in prision for destroying 98 people? that is an example of liberal justice.

CT has laws against assault, murder, assault weapons, and on and on. None of those existing laws deterred Lanza from carrying out his goal. More laws will not make a difference. Existing laws also exist that will help to identify mental health issues that can lead to this kind of atrocity. They didn't help much either. There will always be the random factor that you can't plan for. Lanza is one of them.

Using the "we can't stop one criminal, why try" defense ?? WOW ~! I gave you more credit...

How about all the potential shooters it deters or the sentencing after the act ???

"Man", you're useless, if all you do is rehash false logic.

Gee, I wonder if there are any statistics on how many "potential" shooters, murderers, rapists, serial killers, child molesters and other criminals were actually deterred by laws?

Gee, I wonder if pretending stopping "potential" evil is an adult idea or an a dolt topic.

Sure, get rid of laws, then post your address, dumb*ss !

As far as the argument that criminals don't obey laws reductio ad absurdem would then dictate that we should make murder legal because, after all, criminals will murder people whether or not it is legal.

Complete nauseating silliness....

You're right, change is needed. How about this? Find a way to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and crazy people so law abiding citizens can continue to arm and protect themselves.

Why is it no lefty ever brings this up as a solution?

Find a way to prevent all crime ?? Sure, that's possible, just like ALL folks need guns, right ??? Yeah, you're really willing to help, huh ?? Change names again.

Since you put a lot of stock in spelling, mr low integrity poster, you might want to try "absurdum" next time. I am not commenting on your intelligence or lack thereof, but since you place stock and value on spelling over the content of the argument, this does paint your argument in quite a poor light.
