He must have had some "improvements" made. --------------- Obviously never fired a gun before in his life. Even a moderately trained person could do that in a "gun free zone" with just one pistol.....which highlights the absurdity of "gun free zones" to begin with! The only thing "gun free zones" to is make everyone an easy target.

Assuming things in a discussion is a common thing of the libs I fight with on HP :) I did fire plenty but AK47 (east european) style. The concealed-carry Ann is for would have serve to nothing in Adam Lanza's case.
Getting powerful weapons is way too easy. Just go to Walmart w. $500. It should be $5000-$10000, not 500.

And Adam's mother saw to it that he was well-trained. It's unfortunate. She was probably trying to get him interested in target shooting - a great sport - and it "backfired."

Too bad. A kid like that might well have benefited from it.

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
