Gunman's mother kept trials of home life hidden

Dec 17, 2012 Full story: The Kansas City Star 798

At the bar, everybody knew her name.Nancy Lanza was the one who, if she heard you were short on cash, regularly offered to pick up the tab at My Place.Two or three nights a week, Lanza - the mother of the gunman in Connecticut's horrific school massacre - came in for carryout salads, but stayed for Chardonnay and good humor.

I think alot of these killers do such horrible things as to force the issue of suicide. They need that motivation. Funny how when they seem to realize they are in deep crap they have the motivation to do what they probably couldn't do minutes earlier. Child killer Adam Lanza was indeed a coward not for taking himself out of life earlier.
I sometimes think we have to take the stigma off of suicide. Don't encourage it but realize for some it truely is the only way out. I think many drug addicts and alcoholics simply don't have the guts to take themselves out yet they inflict their misery on the rest of us with lying,cheating,stealing and hurting people through crime. They're miserable and literally waiting for the end. Maybe we should offer people the choice to flip to their final chapter/page.
If I knew a person had a choice of something like hardcore drug addiction or suicide I quite frankly would respect the individual who chooses to take themselves out just to avoid stuff like this. The Asian cultures don't seem to be as harsh on those who chose suicide and their cultures have been around longer than most western cultures.
Agreed. http://www.finalexitnetwork.org/new/

Good night my friend.
Unfortunately, schools are Gun Free Zones. It's hard to stop a gunman if you are unarmed. He would have had to be out of ammo in all weapons at once to provide a clear opening for someone to rush him.

That's the problem with Gun Free Zones. If you notice, schools are over represented in cases of mass shootings. It's because it's a Gun Free Zone. The malls and movie theaters affected by mass shootings have the same posting.
How often do you hear of mass shootings at police stations, gun shops, shooting ranges, or hunting clubs?
That's my 2 cents. Something to think about.

Nice side step and avoidance of the question.
I repeat, people with problem children don't deserve to exercise their second amendment right?

Not sure as we have tried to avoid most of the news reports on this tragedy, but there was a mention of the principle trying to distract or stop him when he shot her.

he had the gun and I'm positive that the parental instinct kicked in ... but rather like an ant against an elephant ..

and of course the children are simply scared and confused

just as quickly as you would protect your grand children the teachers reacted the same

Boy oh boy, some of you people are out of your minds. I honestly can not believe some of the crap I have just read. I hate to disappoint you haters but, IF Adam Lanza EVER entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ, he is in heaven right this second with the children he murdered. There is no sin that Jesus Christ won't forgive EXCEPT the sin of not accepting His free gift of forgiveness/salvation. Also, IF Adam Lanza was too mentally disturbed to ever comprehend forgiveness/salvation, God would not hold him responsible any more than he would a 2 year old. IF that be the case, Adam Lanza is in heaven right this second. This boy was no doubt mentally disturbed. None of us know the life he led or what problems he faced. Mental illness is a sickness just like cancer is a sickness. Many times a person with severe mental illness end their lives because they can't take this world anymore. You can not say they are a coward because you have not lived their life!!! People die of cancer, people die of mental illness. It is not a sin if someone dies of cancer AND it is not a sin if someone is so mentally disturbed that they take their own life. You people sitting around speculating on what sin is forgiveable and what isn't like you are authorities on who will be forgiven and who won't is EXTREMELY LAUGHABLE! LOL
I read one post where the person claims to be a Christian yet says that they would never forgive Adam Lanza or someone who did such a thing. Let me remind you that the bible says that "if we refuse to forgive someone else, God will not forgive us." Also, Jesus said that if we so much as hate another person we are guilty of murder. You really need to read the bible WITHOUT PUTTING YOUR SPIN ON IT! You are some prideful, unforgiving, hateful people. And that is a sin!

One question, if you had a son that was mentally disturbed and did such a thing as this, would you hate him for what he did?

The Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue, are a set of biblical laws relating to ethics and worship, which play a fundamental role in Judaism and Christianity. They include instructions to worship only God and to keep the sabbath, and prohibitions against idolatry, blasphemy, murder, theft, and adultery. Different groups follow slightly different traditions for interpreting and numbering them.

NOBODY is capable of keeping the 10 Commmandments! That is why Jesus Christ came, led a sinless life, died on the cross taking the punishment for your sins, and rose again.

1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
3) Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
4) Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
5) Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
6) Thou shalt not kill.
7) Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8) Thou shalt not steal.
9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
10) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Dead people don't forgive.
Are you saying that the reason a coward like this murderer took his life is so God would forgive him instead??
Not the God I know. I believe in God,,but not controlled religion. No one tells me how to believe or how to pray, where to pray, who to accept, or who to forgive in life, that is my choice.
You can be damned sure if someone took the life of my children or grandchildren, he better take his life, because I will. I sure as to hell will not forgive the son of a bitch.
The shooter took his life to escape punishment;the same reason why hitler took his life. Judaism and Christianity are not "controlled religion." Without Organized Religion,there is NO way that we can 'know' God. Vigilantism is not the answer. I too would find it difficult to forgive an sob.

Who is capable of keeping all of the commandments above? Nobody! If you are guilty of breaking one you may as well break them all because breaking the one will send you to hell.
