This was NOT a murder. It was an elaborate suicide. Mrs. Lanza was trying to get legal conservatorship over Adam and have him confined. He knew that and was so frightened he wanted to die. Not just to die but make the whole world cry. He chose a gun-free zone KNOWING there would be no resistance for as long as it took him to murder a lot of kids. The CT laws are ranked 4th best in the nation by the Brady Campaign. None of the shootings occurred in places where armed defense was allowed. The Aurora murderer passed at least 3-5 theaters because they didn't have "No Guns" signs and there was even a slight chance somebody would shoot back. These guys want an unlimited field of sheep to slaughter. They are the wolves. We are sheepdogs.

You're just wrong! The latest story is that she was trying to get him out and mingle with other people. And he just shut up and wouldn't even talk to his mother. The false stories about this incident are remarkable.

I think they fall into the 'terrorist' category.

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...
