The guns that Adam Lanza used in the Newtown massacre  weren’t routinely locked up, according to a report.

Lanza gunned down the owner of those guns, his mom, Nancy Lanza, on the morning of the bloodshed. She reportedly knew he had psychological problems.

Investigators continue to focus on  whether Lanza had  a “psychotic meltdown” before gunning down 26 children and school staffers.

    I said it before, it's all about bad parenting. Too bad she didn't live to look the parents in the eyes! Where was the father? He had no idea of this situation or condition of his son? I'm missing something here….

      I agree, the father has very successfully stayed out of the public eye. Where was the father in this? Somewhere I read that he had not talked to the boy for 2 years. If true, hat is bad parenting on his part.

        We dont know all the details, but what I do see a link in is how almost all the 'school' shooting s happen with kids placed on brain altering drugs which was what Adam's family member was suggesting that he was on, that would explain a lot!

    No big surprise there. Did anyone actually think she made much of an effort to keep her 20 year old son away from the guns she taught him to shoot? She probably expected him to use them for protection when she was away.

    Was there even an AR-15 present? The video of the trunk clearly shows a SHOTGUN being removed. Not even close to an AR-15. Where are the Coroner's/Police reports? Did the mother even own an AR? All the confirmed evidence shows a Sig & a Glock handguns and a shotgun in the trunk (not used).

    I was curious to the guns used as well.. Were clips used? I have heard reports that he had several clips but nothing was said about any clips being used. Are there any reports out on what was found?
