Newtown Massacre still has question that need to be answers

Newtown Massacre question still need to be answers

In December search warrants for the home of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, who shared a home with his mother, Nancy, and for the vehicle Adam Lanza used to drive to the school, were sealed for ninety days by Judge John F. Blawie.   This also included the identity of a witness and undisclosed items obtained during the searches.

The information is now expected to be released tomorrow, March 28th.

The only item of significance found at Lanza’s home, and leaked to the press, was a 4 by 7 foot spreadsheet on which Lanza charted serial killers and their victims.

The state legislature is waiting to see the evidence before enacting gun legislation.

Another issue that is senseless, but needs closure, is the claim by some who are against any form of gun law reform, that Lanza did not use an AR-15 style rifle.  That he actually used two handguns.

The Connecticut State Police were fed up with answering questions about the issue.  In January they issued a statement.  Following is the relevant content.

“The shooter used the Bushmaster .223 to murder 20 children and six adults inside the school; he used a handgun to take his own life inside the school. No other weapons were used in this crime. This case remains under investigation.”

I know for some “conspiracy theorists” that admitting facts are correct, and that theories are just theories or “wishes”, is difficult.

The NRA lobby and some gun “enthusiasts” will not even admit the simple fact that assault rifles are manufactured to kill many people at one time.  They are a poor “self-defense” weapon, and not realistic for hunting wild game.  They are excellent for killing other humans, just ask the military or officers of the law.

The most fallacious statements made by the NRA is that the President and liberals want to take away all guns.  That is simply a huge lie.  But the lobby wants those who use emotion instead of logic to believe it.  There has never been and never will be a move by anyone on the left side of the aisle to ban all guns.

Wayne LaPierre doesn’t want you to know it, but there are liberal members of the NRA.  There are men and women who hunt on the left.  There are left wing individuals that enjoy target shooting.  Some of those who support a change in our gun laws even own a weapon for home protection.

What we must do if we are to be viewed as a nation of intelligent people, is to enact logical, sensible gun reform, reform that will assist in the protection of our citizens in their routine life.
