More depressing news today. The state police released details of what they found as a result of search warrants of the Lanza home.
Among those things found were thousands of rounds of ammunition, weapons, unlocked gun safes including one in the deranged shooter's bedroom, a gift certificate from Lanza's mother to him for the purchase of yet another firearm, tons of computer stuff, and the list goes on and on.
Was this psycopath's mother paying any attention at all? How could you live in the same house with someone--your child no less--and not have an inkling that there just might be something a tad wrong? Did she care? Was she too preoccupied with her own problems?
Like all of the other victims, she met a terrible fate but one has to wonder: had she been just a little more cognizant of what was going on in her son's head, perhaps things could have turned out differently.
And, finally, what if the ban on assault weapons had been renewed during the Bush administration? What then?
