SANDY HOOK REPORT: ADAM LANZA BROKE LAWS TO ACQUIRE GUNS, BROKE MORE LAWS USING THEM

2 Comments

This is from Breitbarts Big Government.

Which laws on the book now or proposed laws would

stopped Adam Lanza from getting a gun and using it?

 

A report released Monday by Connecticut’s Attorney for the District of Danbury says all the guns and ammunition involved in the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary were legally purchased by Nancy Lanza and then stolen by her son, Adam.

The report lists “a number of crimes” Lanza committed with the stolen guns—including the crime of “Murder Under Special Circumstances,” which was committed twenty-six times—and the report says Adam Lanza “was solely criminally responsible” for all these crimes.

According to State’s Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III, the firearms found inside the school after the crime were a Bushmaster XM15-E2S, a Glock 20 in 10 mm, and a Sig Sauer P226 in 9mm. The Sig Sauer was never fired, and the Glock was the weapon Lanza used to take his own life after shooting innocents.

An Izmash Saiga-12, a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun, was found in Lanza’s car outside the school, and a Savage Mark II .22 rifle was found at Lanza’s residence.

Lanza used the .22 rifle to shoot and kill his mother as she slept.

All of the guns were lawfully purchased by Lanza’s mother, as was all the ammunition. Lanza then bypassed all gun control by stealing the firearms before using them to carry out his heinous crimes.

Because the guns were stolen, Senator Joe Manchin‘s (D-WV) failed gun control bill would have done nothing to prevent the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary.

‘If We Can Save Just One Child…’

This is from Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership.

 Adam Lanza was failed by the very same social policies that claimed

to be the only way to protect childern.

This by no means excuses the evil perpetrated by Adam.

Adam’s mother should have been able to have him committed.

 How ever the system that claimed to be able to protect him

made it impossible to get committed.

Adam Lanza, who slaughtered and maimed children and staff of his former elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, provided this year’s convenient justification for new legislation controlling firearms in the U.S. This week, President Obama brings Newtown victims’ families to Washington for synchronized bloody shirt-waving on Capitol Hill in support of new restrictions on guns and gun owners. “Moderate” and even conservative senators still embrace the effort to “do something,” even though many premises of the proposed legislation are false.

Myths about uncontrolled gun show and internet gun sales abound, with media reports erroneously claiming, for example, that “[f]ederal background checks are currently required only for transactions handled by the roughly 55,000 federally licensed firearms dealers; private sales such as gun-show or online purchases are exempt.” (Tell that to Gunbroker.com and other such sites.) Connecticut, New York, Maryland, and Colorado legislators have already pushed through draconian new restrictions, some at such variance with real-world conditions that they have had to be revised already. Other states threaten to follow suit as ambitious progressive politicians promise that security is but a few hundred pages of restrictive legislation away.

Now we learn, ironically, that Adam Lanza himself was failed by years of social policy and legislation supposedly adopted to protect children like him — policy and legislation aimed at what we are told is another contemporary scourge, deliverance from which is almost as dear to the hearts of progressive remakers of humanity as gun control: school bullying. Glancing at his photo, anyone will recognize in Adam Lanza the wispy, jumpy little weird kid whom serious bullies and just casual wiseguys love to torment. Dealing with kids like him for all of us as children was a moral test that some of us passed and some of us failed. According to a family friend, Lanza was “tortured” by relentless bullying at Newtown Elementary. He believes that “Adam felt betrayed by the school and this was his act of revenge.”

Nancy Lanza

The family friend, who was also Lanza’s Cub Scout leader, claims that the mother who also fell before Lanza’ s murderous rage believed that the school failed to protect her son:

Nancy Lanza was so incensed by the school’s failure to protect her son that she sometimes showed up unannounced to watch over him[.] … She was so upset that the teachers weren’t protecting him from the bullies that she went with him like a bodyguard[.]

Lanza was fond of military-themed video games and aspired to don the uniform of a U.S. Marine, following the example of a beloved uncle — an ambition barred to him by his by then-significant mental and behavioral problems. Mrs. Lanza apparently did allow her son access to firearms, perhaps in an effort to provide the troubled loner with some form of individual activity in which he could excel and thus build some sense of self-worth. In a boy less disturbed, her efforts might have done some good, and the Marines have helped more than a few troubled young men to turn their lives around. But Adam Lanza was already too far gone. His ambition to be a Marine thwarted, “the family friend … believes Adam snapped after being told he would never get a chance to put on a uniform.”

Media reports, including the New York Daily News piece cited, have made much of Lanza’s mother’s allowing him access to firearms, and of the few bricks of ammo, the two rifles, and a couple of edged weapons in the Lanza house: “His gun-loving mother quietly amassed a near-apocalyptic arsenal of lethal weapons — and frequently took her son to local gun ranges.” But the instruments of Lanza’s rage were not its source.

By the time Adam Lanza was ten years old, Connecticut schools were required by law to have an anti-bullying policy in place. This requirement was strengthened in 2008 and again in 2011. None of these laws helped protect Adam Lanza, nor did they keep him from growing up into an angry young man known to us only for a final horrific act at the scene of his own torment. Teacher trainers, consultants, anti-bullying policy coordinators, and such benefited from the legislation, but Lanza did not.

Of course, the evils Adam Lanza perpetrated transcend any harm ever done him in Newtown Elementary or anywhere else, and his mother certainly seems to have committed a terrible error in allowing such a mentally unstable young man access to firearms — an error that added her own death to those of Newtown’s innocents. In cynical exploitation of these awful events, politicians offer new laws, without even a pause for a thought about the false promises of other laws they have embraced with equal breathless fervor, and without a hint of accountability for those who failed that tormented little boy at a Connecticut elementary school.

 

 

Warrants Detail Items Seized From Lanza Hom

Leave a comment

This is from The Smoking Gun.

The story focuses on Adam’s gun ownership and his

obsession with violent video games.

It is mentioned Adam had a certificate from The NRA.

But the article fails to mention Adams use of psychotropic drugs

as well as any side effects of said drugs.

Adam’s mother should have been able to commit him.

But sadly the courts liberal views will not allow that to happen.

 

MARCH 28–A police search of school shooter Adam Lanza’s home turned up a cache of guns, knives, swords, and ammo, eight journals authored by the 20-year-old gunman, a National Rifle Associationcertificate issued to the mass murderer, and an NRA guide to the “basics of pistol shooting.”

Search warrant inventories released today detail the items seized from the Sandy Hook, Connecticut home Lanza shared with his mother Nancy. The searches were conducted following Lanza’s December 14 shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

According to the inventories, police found these items in Lanza’s residence:

* Three photos “with images of what appears to be a deceased human covered with plastic and what appears to be blood.”

* A New York Times article about a “school shooting at Northern Illinois University.” In February 2008, a former NIU student shot five victims to death and injured 21 others inside a lecture hall before killing himself.

* An “Adam Lanza National Rifle Association certificate.”

* An “NRA guide to the basics of pistol shooting.” Two books about Asperger’s syndrome were also taken from home of Lanza, who reportedly suffered from the developmental disorder. One of the books is a memoir by John Elder Robison about living with Asperger’s. After the Sandy Hook shooting, Robison wrote a Psychology Today article debunking the claim that Asperger’s can turn someone into a mass murderer.

The inventories contain no references to medications purportedly prescribed to Lanza.

* A “smashed computer hard drive” that was found on “top of a desk in what is believed to be Adam Lanza’s bedroom.”

The documents also reveal that Connecticut police turned over to the FBI material including Lanza’s “personal writings” and “personal memorabilia,” and a “military-style uniform” found in the killer’s bedroom.

Affidavits included in the search warrant applications include references to an FBI interview with a witness (whose name is redacted) who described Lanza as a “shut in and avid gamer who plays Call of Duty, amongst other games.” The witness added that Lanza had attended Sandy Hook Elementary School and that the institution was his “life.”

As previously reported, a search of Lanza’s car turned up a loaded shotgun and 70 rounds of ammunition.

Additionally, the affidavits provide a brief account of what police discovered upon entering the elementary school.Lanza was found “dressed in military style clothing, wearing a bullet proof vest lying deceased in the floor in the middle classroom.” He was “in possession of several handguns as well as a military style assault weapon.”

The documents were released this morning by the Connecticut Judicial Branch. The search warrants–one for the car Lanza drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School and four for the residence (seen above) he shared with his 52-year-old mother–were executed following the December 14 shooting.

After shooting his mother Nancy to death in their Sandy Hook home, Lanza drove a 2010 Honda Civic to the Newtown school, where he used a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle to murder 20 children and six adults (before killing himself with a Glock handgun). Investigators recovered 154 spent .223-caliber shell casings inside the school.

On the day of the shooting, police searched Lanza’s car and executed two separate warrants at his Yogananda Street residence. On December 15, a third search was conducted at the home. The final warrant was executed at the home on December 16, and included authorization to search Nancy Lanza’s BMW, which was parked in an attached garage. (8 pages)

 

 

Detectives investigating Newtown massacre find Adam Lanza’s violent video games, ponder the 20-year-old mimicking a gory game scene

This is from The New York Daily News.

It is very obvious Adam Lanza was mentally deranged.

This video fed his mental delusions and mad him psychotic.

Adam’s family failed him big time.

There needs to be an easier way to commit people like Adam.

 

Thousands of dollars worth of games were found in the home of Lanza, who used assault weapons to gun down 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Lanza as a child. Because he and his mother were fond of shooting ranges, where they bonded, authorities are probing whether Adam Lanza   emulated a scenario he saw at one. They are also looking into whether he drew inspiration from one of his video games.

Investigators’ attempt to gain insight into Lanza’s habits and mind set before the spree has been hampered because he destroyed his hard drive.

Connecticut police found thousands of dollars worth of violent video games in the home of Adam Lanza, who mercilessly gunned down 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.

During a search of the Newtown home he shared with his mother, Nancy Lanza, who also died Dec. 10 at the hands of her son, authorities discovered what appeared to be dozens, if not hundreds, of graphically violent games, the Hartford Courant reported.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2′ is among one of the violent video games being associated with gun violence in minors.

The sad discovery has led detectives to investigate whether Lanza, 20, who turned one of his rifles on himself, may have been mimicking a gory scenario in one of the violent games he so loved to play.

Police are also looking into whether Lanza, who was said to have bonded with his mother at gun ranges, was emulating a scenario that he may have seen at one.

Lanza, who had Asperger’s syndrome, has been described by family friends as a lonely young man who isolated himself in his bedroom for hours, if not days, while playing violent video games.

People with Asperger’s are known to have serious difficulty with social interactions, but doctors say it carries no predisposition toward violence.

One of the violent games Lanza loved to play may have been “Call of Duty,” an intense shooting game set during World War II.

But police may never know the full extent of Lanza’s obsession with violent video games, as he destroyed the hard drive on his computer.
