He is the latest in a long line of lone gunmen doped up to the eyeballs on experimental psychoactive drugs.
Quite unbelievably, like Holmes', Lanza's father was a powerful guy and if someone wanted to hurt the fathers, what better way than to use the sons.
It was his mother who kept the guns and had the concerns over his mental state.
I find it hard to believe he would shoot his mother in the face before driving 30 mins to the school, where his mother used to work. Allegedly armed to the teeth, he gained entry to the school and proceeded to massacre children, As he was dressed in swat gear, no one could be sure of the identity of the assailant.
There are rumours of a second shooter, which have a fair amount of credibility following testimony from gun experts who cannot fathom how one inexperienced gun user could do so much damage in such a short space of time without being stopped.
He may have had the intent to kill if he was deranged as we are led to believe but we still have the question over his capacity to carry out the atrocity and also the fact that his death certificate is dated the day prior to the massacre.
Not sure if there is anything to this and if any further details will ever be revealed but it is fairly shocking that the net result of this massacre, on the back of other shootings, was the spike in gun sales. The suppliers of weapons cannot believe their luck.
When you think about it, all we know is what we were told. No pictures at all, and numerous highly irregular details.
