Nancy Lanza buried as locals ask: was massacre her fault?
WAS NANCY LANZA to blame for the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting rampage perpetrated by her 20-year-old son, Adam Lanza, a week ago today? As the people of Newtown, Connecticut continue to watch in shock the funeral corteges of child-sized coffins passing through this affluent community, many are beginning to think so.

No, She wasn't the person who killed all those children and adults.....she is not accountable for the poor action of her son.

There are cases where guilt for and act of a minor, crazy, drunk, druggie is assesed to someone other than person who pulled the trigger OR drove drunk OR injured someone on drugs OR injured/killed while crazy.

Inspired me to renew my membership in the NRA as I let it lapse several years ago. I encourage all of you to join the NRA now. There's never been a more dire time. Those who wish to take our guns will jump on these recent events as a reason to. That, coupled with our current President and the liberal media, will set things in motion for the most restrictive gun control laws our nation will have ever seen.
These horrible shootings keep taking place, and they keep taking place in gun-fee zones like schools and colleges. I agree we need gun laws...laws which allow the general populace the unrestricted right to carry guns. Laws which allow principals, administrators, teachers, professors, and all free and law abiding citizens the rights protected under the 2nd!
Join the NRA as they need the support right now to help us fight this fight. No one entity can be as helpful in this fight as they can.
Use social networking to get the word out, but most importantly, GO JOIN!
Make no mistake, they ARE coming for our guns.

So few people realize that this tragedy was caused simply, directly and completely by Nancy Lanza's failure to secure those weapons.
SHE knew the status of her son's mental health. She had been struggling with it for many years. And yet she failed to prevent her son from gaining access to these weapons.
She paid for her mistake with her own life, but unfortunately her failure cost many more.
This is just a magnified example of the situation where someone bought a handgun 20 years ago and it' buried in the nightstand under the paperbacks.... forgotten... until a 10 year old kid finds it and tragedy results.
This is, plain and simple, sheer stupidity.
Stupidity leads to gunshot deaths, drunk driving deaths, texting distractions and more deaths...
This is Capital Stupidity. But it's not a valid reason to take away all the guns.
The administration's mantra of "if it saves only one life it will be worth it" makes a great sound bite, but if that were your sole criterion for justifying ANY change to ANYTHING then there would be no cars, no school sports, no scissors, no banana peels...

......... We don't know if the guns were locked up or not. The police or politicians aren't releasing any info. There never has been a doctor or prescription found yet. No motive published or even hinted at from any computer files. Just a parade about gun control.

Dear Well Obviously,
Im not sure if you know the released facts of this case..
Were you aware that the shooter tried to get his own gun from a store just days before?
Are you aware that it was released that Nancy Lanza was found dead of 4 gunshot wounds to the face?
Wouldnt that suggst to you that the shooter was going to get a gun or some weapon to kill as many people and himself as possible?
Are you aware that is alleged he was on psychotropic medication which has the known side affect of suicidal homicidal ideation?
Isnt it plausible to suspect that his (legal) drug induced state was going to drive him to make the most meyhem that he could have..
This is not anyones fault. The sad thing here is that these children appear to have died in vain as nnot one media outlet is discussing the meds as well as no big voice demanding investigation and studies into these mind altering drugs that are killing innocent people.....

the only thing we can know for sure is he was really mad at his mom that morning and maybe for a long time before this happen. Oh and did you know the gun dealer was going to sell him the gun Adam just did not want to wait for it. there has been nothing offical stating he was on any meds legal or otherwise. Why is it so hard for people to accept that a mental unstable person did something bad.

Seems Adam was going to hurt/kill as many people as possible.#1 was mommy, the person who gave him access to the weapons he used.
Why on God's green earth Adam went on to kill as many kids as he could is still a mystery. Maybe some day the Government will come clean and release details of Adam's motive.
In the mean time the Government is dead set on utilizing to the maximum extent possible this tragedy to enact gun control legislation.
Reasonable people recognize these gun control actions are simply meant to take the first step in completely banning all forms of firearms from private ownership.
There has been little focus on mental illness as a root cause of this disaster. Elected officials get a lot of campaign donations from drug companies. AND controlling mental illness is NOT an inexpensive operation and not very popular either.
It's less expensive to attempt to remove one weapon from legal owners. However elected officials will realize the impact of removing guns from legal owners in the next election.

Where is the toxicology report ? If this Adam Lanza killed 20 kids with his car and died himself in the crash every would be asking if he was drinking or on mind altering drugs.
Was he a victim of child psychiatry and on the brain pills known to cause violent mania like all the other school shooters ?
Its hard for me to belive there is no toxicology report.

hi . I'm not from CT so I can only web up info . The psychologist Eugene E Rosen , Where is his house on riverside ? It is yellow ? If the children were at his house would they have walked past the fire station ? He said that a school bus driver was with them . Why wouldn't the bus driver be having a bus ? or not stop at the fire station ? I saw footage of a lot of people at the fire station just walking in circles . It seems odd that the freemasons property joins the school property also . Why did the ME say the childs were killed by a long rifle when the police are clearly shown removing the rifle from a car trunk ? Anyone know the children or families ? Why is Robbie Parker laughing and smiling just before he gives a speech ? I have not seen any of the families actually cry , though it seems they "pretend" to ?

How could Adam have Ryan's valid ID if Ryan said he hadn't seen Adam in years ? Who said he tried to buy a gun ? What med was he on ? Why no images of the broken window ? Why no images of anyone being taken from the school ? Did his mother work at the school ? Why does James Holmes lawyer look like the Phelps woman ? And Rosen looks like the Thomas Sullivan guy . Notice O'Bama made 23 Executive orders just after ? All closed casket funerals ? Did the parents ever see their children after they went to school that day ? what's with all the Zoar names ?

Who did they catch in the woods ? Oh and many countries that got gun control then exterminated there own people . Russia China Uganda Guatemala.... actually the freaks mentioned in the bible are the same bloodline that today are called the illuminati . Abram , David , Jesus , Julius Caesar, Queen Elizabeth 2nd ,George Bush, Rothchild ,Rockefeller, Clinton are all of the same inbred bloodline . THESE are the ones to go after . All the so-called royalty . New world order .hand
