DO NOT KEEP GUNS IN YOUR HOME. THEY CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU IF YOU HAVE AN UNSTABLE PERSON IN THE HOUSEHOLD.

The stupid white lady is a teacher, has an adult son with a mental illness and she keeps several powerful handguns and assault rifles in her home??

At-least we can be thankful that she was taken out.

How stupid can people be??

It seems like a *ucked up family all around. She should have kept them in a gun vault, and kept the key REALLY hidden from the nutjob. The parents were divorced in 2008, the brother lives in NJ and has said he hasn't talked to his brother since 2010. You can just FEEL that everyone KNEW the nutjob was ready to blow up but nobody did anything? Even lock the guns away??? WTF?

Truly a dysfunctional group that overlooked the obvious. So sad.

The phrase "Newtown's 20 Angels" I think would be appropriate, seeing they seem to be all under the age of 10, with pure innocence, and none for them are guilty of texting while driving a car.
Even if they are all white.

Trade the guns for feather pillows....

Is anyone killed?

Guns kill.

People operate them.

True. a million degrees on a wall can never compensate for reality and common sense. I have encountered so many people like this.

Such as "professionals" that have no kids, yet they can tell us explicitly how to handle your child.

Blacks kill/shoot each other daily with guns all over the USA. Guns are always available on city streets for $30 to $50. No need to hide them. It has become so normal that shootings are not even reported anymore in the cities. We have come to expect it.
just like whites kill everyday all over the US. Whites kill in groups, one at a time is not good enough for them. It is becoming normal for whites to go on rampages at educational institutions too. We have come to expect whites to go berserk.

----Ain't this a hoot?

And he lived in luxury.

Lanza was living with his devoted mother, Nancy, in the familyís four-bedroom, 3,100-square-foot estate.

Nancy Lanza divorced Adamís father, Peter, in 2008. Peter Lanza, now a vice president of taxes for GE Energy Financial Services, agreed to annual alimony payments that started at $240,000 and would have reached $298,800 in 2015.

The mom was never a teacher, she was not certified nor had a teaching degree. She was once a school nurse (in another town/state) and did volunteer work at the school district occasionally, that's her extent of interaction with schools.
She pulled her son out of school to homeschool him, you dont need to be a teacher to do that.
Too bad your unknown father didnt take his junk out before it was too late.

If you homeschool your kid, your teaching him, you are a "teacher". duh. Did I say she was a teacher at a school???
So STFU. I wasn't even talking to you, I was talking to nickbo.

The mom seemed as much as a loon as the killer. Her irresonsibility and cluelessness to the danger lurking in her presence. Plus..she appeared to be a drunk/lush who liked to drink regulary at the local watering hole as Jr creepily fondled/fantasized using her too numerous armaments. These are from whom guns should be kept from.Then tough guy Jr decided a bunch of defenseless children should pay for whatever mommy issues he had. Too bad Dick Cheney wasn't around to spray buckshot into his evil face at the range before he could live out his heinous fantasies

this broad was a lush. I cannot wait to see how many lawsuits come forth from this tragedy. The Lanza Estate was wealthy.

We all need to look at ourselves. We are a very sick society. Just look at all the hatred That we have for each other. I would say probably 60 percent of this Site is filled with hate. We say things about each other that is ugly. We hate black people we hate white people we hate anyone That is different than us. We are all scared of things It's love not hate they will bring change to this world. Remember the people that die in this country everyday to violence is somebody's love one and very easily could be your love one. your daughter your son your mother your father. now if you want to concentrate on my grammar rather than my words and their meanings that's up to you. we're all in this world together and need to learn to get along.

I'm glad to hear that.. hate is like a drug. We do it to make ourself feel better maybe we should all work on our inner self. feeling good about who we are might allow us to feel good about others
