    @Medicinebow Uh every single gun she had plus a thousand rounds of ammo? This woman bears a ton of responsibility for Newtown. She knew that kid was nuts. She paid with her life. Damn shame the kids had to.

    No more than Dianne Feinstein, Joey Biden, Harry Reed, Sarah Brady and the President. Where were THEY when the time came to protect our children from a mentally deranged boy?

    Why didn't THEY catch the signs that he might commit his crime.

    What level of responsibility do THEY have for creating guaranteed soft targets and advertising them with "Gun Free Zone" signs that have come to mean "Good Place for a Killin' "

    You blame Feinstein and every democrat for what some deranged kid and his nut job mother are responsible for in Newtown? You are a work of art aren't you?

    @jessejaymes Your mother thinks so.

    Feinstein and every demagogue are more than happy to blame me and every other law abiding gun owner; it's just about as reasonable.

    @Knuckleballer So if they're unreasonable that makes it tit for tat and you can go off the rails right along with them. Wonderful. We're in quicksand here.

    @jessejaymes Just making the point.... they're unreasonable, have been for years and been getting a pass. SORRY, my idiot quote has been exceeded, no more passes for them.

    This woman should be prosecuted for Accessory to Murder. They go after anyone who provides guns to gangbangers, I don't see a difference here.

    She didn't BUY him the gun.... she wrote a check that somebody has decided was supposed to be used for him to purchase a gun.

    By The Way; the Brady Bill Imposed background check that was put in place to prevent ineligible people from purchasing by doing the Instant Check the Anti Bill of Rights Zealots promised would stop such things from happening would have prevented him from owning the gun.

    Maybe she was planning to do a Mark Kelly Purchase and was testing the foolproof system we're all paying for.

    @Realthinker his dad was estranged for both of them. Even if he knew about the guns, he would not have been responsible.

    @Realthinker I meant to say that, I was gettin my shootings mixed up. There are a lot to keep track of anymore.
    Did he know his son was psychologically unstable? I'd know if my son was. And I sure the hell wouldn't give him guns or take him to the range till he was being treated.

    Why are we just now saying this? It was apparent from the very day this tragedy happened. His mom, it turns out, was a prepper type...paranoid, probably why she was divorced. The kid was mentally unstable and she did not get him any help; and on top of that BOUGHT HIM GUNS!!! And we have people all around them that knew this was going on and kept their damned mouths shut. It is time for people to wake up and take responsibility for helping keep their neighborhood safe. There is no excuse for this...a mentally unstable kid and a paranoid mother doing crazy things and they can go to a shooting range without raising eyebrows...stupid, stupid.

    Well said. If we gun owners won't police ourselves this is what happens. You can't tell me that people in Newtown didn't know about this crackpot kid and his mother.

    Gun lovers everywhere, just like her, bear some responsibility. Your dangerous hobby and supposed need to defend yourself against low probability events has escalated gun violence and gun related suicide, creating the very situation which you fear. You now feel the need to protect your self with a gun against others with guns. Oh the irony!

    low probability events like the one covered in this article? Hmmm...yet it'sok to use this low probability event to push an anti-gun agenda.

    I learned something a few days ago which really, really surprised me: gun related crime is actually down from the 1990s. I would have bet the opposite was true.
    http://www.nij.gov/topics/crime/gun-violence/...

    Crazed massacres are increasing in frequency, though.

    I'm glad you mentioned suicides. I also learned "Gun suicides are almost twice as common as homicides in America (19,392 to 11,078 in 2010)."

    @Zazziness 60% of gun deaths are suicides, but guns are actually only used in 50% of suicides. We also have about the same suicide rate per 100000 as France and the UK, they just don't use guns to do it.

    If your child had been among the 20 babies murdered in their classroom, don't you think you'd want to "blame" someone?

    I realize the mother is dead, but she is culpable for her son's actions in this case. He lived with her and she had quite a collection of weapons. I don't deny her that right, but those guns should have been locked in a gun safe where NO ONE but herself could get to them.

    It seems her son's access to those weapons was far too easy.

    Neither Nancy Lanza nor Adam Lanza are alive to testify about it. This story is misleading in the extreme and assumes facts not in evidence. The check reads for C183, some sort of fancy camera. The gun control zealots are saying that "she made a mistake and it's supposed to be a Cz83 pistol. Give me a freaking break! Nancy Lanza apparently DID keep her guns locked up in a safe. Beware of "interpretation" of facts not in evidence by sources very close, very chummy with the White House and its gun control at any cost agenda. Last time I looked, we still live in the USA. Guilty until proven innocent, ESPECIALLY in poor Nancy Lanza's case as the first victim. It is a natural instinct, even among WILD ANIMALS for the Mother to protect her young. Nancy Lanza, thinking her son would outlive her, and KNOWING that it is usually the mentally ill who are victimized by others, tried to teach her son to defend himself, especially due to his very weak physical condition. She, being a good-hearted person, had no idea the ungrateful little psycho would turn on her and others and use those skills to victimize herself and others. Tell me what sort of Father or Mother doesn't seek to protect their young, even beyond the grave, and tell me you have never made a considerable error. Hindsight is always 20/20. People are far from perfect. That's why we have psychiatrists, police officers, district attorneys, judges, defense lawyers. The latter, because police officers, district attorneys and judges are OFTEN not perfect themselves.

    First off, I read the NY Times article. There is no solid proof she wrote him a check to buy a firearm. A C183, is some sort of camera. What some people, who love to speculate to inflame situations even more, are saying is that she "meant to write" Cz83, which is allegedly a semi-auto pistol of Czech manufacture. We do know the Mother had a safe, and that weapons were kept locked in there. The only people that could tell us what happened with any sort of authority are dead. Everyone else that's come after has spouted all sorts of things, some that they have backtracked on. He used only two pistols, and not the AR15, which was found in his vehicle; then he used the AR15 AND the two pistols; the Mother only had 2 semi-auto pistols, 1 AR15, and 1 shotgun, and now we are being told she had a small armory in her home. It's tough to believe these folks, especially when the Police Chief is so personally biased against citizens owning military-look alike rifles. I have close friends who are now retired from law enforcement. They tell me it's not uncommon to find the attitude "tell me what happened, and I'll swear to it", depending on what "what" is; on who it concerns; on what purpose it will serve; and how it will advance the career of those participating. In law enforcement, in cases where a little conspiracy is begun, you have only a few choices: blow the whistle and kiss your career and possibly your life goodbye. Former Detective Serpico of the NYCPD's case is a chilling example; you can say "I didn't see anything" and try to sleep at night if you can; or you can go along to get along which is the most popular choice, next to "I didn't see anything". I am really proud though, of the County Sheriff's throughout the USA, who as Constitutionally-elected law enforcement officers, aren't beholden to Mayor's with unConstitutional agendas. These folks took an oath of office to uphold and preserve the Constitution and the great majority of them are refusing to play along with agents-provocateur in the country bent on gutting the 2nd Amendment, even in the Socialist People's Republic of New York.

    Politix, yet another trick question?... smh ... She was his parent, he lived with her, she had to know his cheese was sliding off his cracker, yet she kept multiple weapons and a ton of ammo unlocked in her home? How could she NOT bear much of the responsibility?

    Once again the apple does not roll far from the tree.Knowing even tho her son had mental issues why buy or give him the means to buy a gun.Laws can not stop stupid.If they could it would be the best form of population control.

    ABSOLUTELY! She was just as crazy as him and an accessory. She's lucky he killed her. She wouldn't have lasted long after he massacred those babies.
    It's no wonder the father severed ties with them.

    I was hoping that Politx Lisa decide to use the term "arsenal", and she didn't, it's on every news outlet out there. After reading about his so called "arsenal" I would be afraid to see what people would say if they looked in my guns safes....

    More than any other individual SHE knew Adam was a certified NUT and she filled his room with weapons according to the CT police reports. THAT is the example and the lesson that Obama should be pointing too rather than going on and on and on about "getting the guns'. What is wrong with him?????

    Shes responsible for him getting a firearm because she didnt secure the guns from her nut job son. She bears no responsibility for the death of herself and the those in the school, thats his and his alone. Hindsight would be 20/20, but she didnt think of the implications and that her son would kill someone, she may have known he was a few cans short of a six pack, but she didn't know he was bat shit crazy....or I would hope so.

    Of course she knew. Even if denial was a river in Egypt, it isn't that freakin' deep. As a single parent, I can assure you, you KNOW if your children are that troubled.

    @Denizen_Kate You may be right, but we'll both never know. I still think she's innocent for the deaths. Her hands are clean. That was Adam and Adam alone.

    @zachsquatch - A troubled soul like Adam Lanza is not created in a vacuum. She was his parent. She knew he was unstable, yet allowed, even encouraged, him to use a variety of weapons. Her hands are not clean.
