Yes she was:Last time I checked Nancy Lanza was one of the victims.
From, "A Mother, a Gun Enthusiast and the First Victim
NEWTOWN, Conn.— Nancy Lanza loved guns, and often took her sons to one of the shooting ranges here in the suburbs northeast of New York City, where there is an active community of gun enthusiasts, her friends said. At a local bar, she sometimes talked about her gun collection. It was one of her guns that was apparently used to take her life on Friday. Her killer was her son Adam Lanza, 20, who then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he killed 26 more people, 20 of them small children, before shooting himself, the authorities said."
It would be orders of magnitude more difficult for my children to do that than this woman's. I would rather live in a community with more homes like mine than in ones with troubled children being raised in a gun culture.
I'm sure that there are kids just as troubled as Adam Lanza living in gunless homes. Such a kid will be unable to do such a thing unless he knows a kid with a gun that will give it to him, or else he can steal it. The more homes with guns in the neighborhood, the likelier that becomes.
Sorry, but these guns simply expose everybody to increased danger. You people who want them will have them - as many as it takes to satisfy you. Why not be honest about it? Nobody can stop you.
And everybody else - well, they'll just have to deal with the marginal carnage caused by these guns, won't they? What choice do they have?
