“You hear gun shots around here all the time" Newtown

This is foreign to me - gun shots in my neighborhood would give me a stroke.

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Nancy Lanza loved guns, and often took her sons to one of the shooting ranges here in the suburbs northeast of New York City, where there is an active community of gun enthusiasts, her friends said. At a local bar, she sometimes talked about her gun collection.

It was one of her guns that was apparently used to take her life on Friday. Her killer was her son Adam Lanza, 20, who then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he killed 26 more people, 20 of them small children, before shooting himself, the authorities said.

Ms. Lanza’s fascination with guns became an important focus of attention on Saturday as investigators tried to determine what caused Mr. Lanza to carry out one of the worst massacres in the nation’s history. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/16/nyregion/friends-of-gunmans-mother-his-first-victim-recall-her-as-generous.html?hp&_r=0

1. That's difficult to believe. Nomalized to dipshit behavior? Well ok.

 

If gun ownership by the rabble is the standard.

5. Not in a town but not really in the sticks either, it's in the country

along a main highway and the houses are close together most have 1/2-1 acre lots. There is lots of woods and farm land off of the main road.

8. That makes a bit more sense.

I am in the city where no gun shots are legal except for self defense unless at the established gun ranges.

3. That's some crazy stuffl

 

Close it down. Shut it off if you hear it. If you hear rounds being fired, notify the authorities immediately.

9. No One Paid Attention Either

 

that's the twisted part.
That that pretty much shoots down the theory about arming teachers.

Every time you hear gun shots in an area where it's no big deal, how would the teacher
know when it's a danger or just some kid shooting squirrels

7. Used to hear shots when I lived in Wisconsin 40 years ago

Neighborhood kids would be hunting small game.
