And still no one questions why the mother who clearly knew her child had major issues, purchased for and trained with firearms.

Do we know how long she owned those weapons? Maybe it was before her son started showing signs of being mentally disturbed. You can't exactly blame a victim here...she certainly did not pull the trigger that killed her, or those that were murdered after her.

Yes we know, and it was after. Yes, I can. It's the mother fault.

The mother knew her child was dangerous, not only to himself, but others. A rational parent would not let a child like that anywhere near a pack of matches, let alone a firearm.

according to what I've read in the news,she knew her kid was autistic,and took up sport shooting WITH him,in an attempt to "reach" her kid,along with the usual self-defense concept.
The kid played a LOT of "first-person shooter" video games,the violent kind.
Sport shooting does not encourage violence or murder,those video games do.

The first I heard of the horrific shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton was from the security guard at the gate returning to my home in Naples. He was in shock, and you could see that he had been crying.

I headed to my condo and turned on the TV … and still have trouble believing what I saw --- what had happened.

By now all of us – even those who are glued to soap operas and entertainment news shows 24/7 – know the story, so there’s no need to go over the hideous details...
