The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.
Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’ families worship.
“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told FoxNews.com. “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”
There is responsible gun ownership, and then there is Nancy Lanza.
There is no way on earth that this kid should have had access to these guns in her house if he was as nuts as what is being reported.
She’s worried about protecting her homestead? The biggest danger, apparently, was right under her roof. If your kid is certifiable you don’t leave metal sporks laying around, let alone guns.
If this is true, this militia was not well-regulated.
