Adam Lanza’s Motive: Did Fear Of Being Committed Lead To Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting?

Adam Lanza’s Motive: Did Fear Of Being Committed Lead To Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting?.

What is scary about this story is the mother knew her son was mentally ill and waited until he was a legal adult to try and commit him. She made it harder on herself because it would take longer than if he was a minor. Apparently the decision to commit Adam Lanza made him angry therefore the police are speculating that this is his motive. Plus his mother volunteered at the school to work with the kindergarteners so there is his connection to the school according to Huffington Post. The son had always felt the mother cared more for the kids than for him. It is a tragedy I feel on both sides there are no winners in this situation.

Newtown Victims’ Lawsuits Curbed By NRA-Backed Law

Newtown Victims’ Lawsuits Curbed By NRA-Backed Law.

Upsetting that the families are being blocked by the NRA law that states families of gun violence cannot sue the weapon manufacture whose guns were used in the crime.

Sandy Hook Parent Sends Message To NRA: ‘Return This Country Their Kids’

Sandy Hook Parent Sends Message To NRA: ‘Return This Country Their Kids’.

Again I understand what these parents are going through with the recent shooting but a whole nation has been broken by all the events in the last five years. 19 mass shootings is not normal at all and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out something is wrong. Gun control is only part of a larger national debate folks. Many if not all of these shooters have mental illness disorders that impair their ability to fully understand right and wrong. We must understand the psychology behind these horrific events to plan better besides focusing on one issue.

NRA Responds To Sandy Hook Massacre.

Another tragedy that the NRA wants to comment on. It really isn’t about one group or another it’s about several groups working together to fix this long standing problem. It doesn’t help when personal interest and back alley dealings are more important than preventing these or limiting these incidents from happening.
