Adam Lanza, the shooter who massacred 20 children and six adults last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School, spent hours in the windowless basement of his home playing violent video games like "Call of Duty" and obsessing over "guns and military equipment." Peter Wlasuk, a plumber who worked at the Lanza home, told The Sun that Lanza "lived in the basement" and he found it "strange." "He had a proper set up down there — computers, a bathroom, bed and desk and a TV," Wlasuk said. "There were no windows.” Wlasuk said he went down to the

It is so difficult to understand how you could allow an individual with mental challenges to have access to guns. He loved being careful with them and made it a source of pride?? How chilling.

"CT Murderer Lived in Windowless Basement Playing Violent Video Games"

Well, there´s a shocker for you.

And for this, the libtard left once again ramps up their bogus progaganda wagon to wreck the Second Ammendment.

I´m saddened and outraged by the crazy violence of last week. We all are. But make no mistake, the influential powers on the left and their obedient tailpipe-sucking media minions have already moved on from the story -- which was never accurately reported anyway -- and are now in full-blown political agenda spin mode.

There is hardly a chance in hades that restrictive gun control laws at the fed level would have prevented this crazy lost soul from doing his hateful dirty work. No chance, actually.

As so many have already done, I refer you to the OKC terror bombing. If and when legal firearms are swept from the hands of law-abiding Americans, the next fad amongst young crazies will be kitchen cabinet explosives. The problem isn´t banana clips; the problem is twisted brain cells.

But, everyone already knows this.

24 hour supervised care? Sorry to throw a stink bomb, but who´s supposed to pay for that? Not many middle class families can afford that, not even if they spend every cent they have. And trying to get such a thing is a good way to get your insurance canceled. So is this going to be another job for ObamaCare?

Do we make all current and potential psych patients permanent wards of the State?

Calls for banning violent video games is as futile as calls for banning guns. Neither are the root problem. We teach kids in schools that the human race is bad. We cause global warming, climate change, dead polar bears, hurricanes, overpopulation, and inequality among our fellow man. We are banned from teaching them in public schools that man was created in a Divine image, and that we were put on this earth to love one-another. Kids get this starting at age 5. Then you layer on parents allowing them to view violent shows, and play violent video games even before the kid has reached the age of reason. Layer on top of this all the psych drugs distributed like pez. During these formative years lies the roots of the cultural rot we see. Because of this, most organically normal kids today grow up to be libs, OK with abortion, and a 55% divorce rate. When the kid has an organic problem on top of that, we get last Friday´s disgrace. Violent video games are harmless in the hands of children who have been taught reason. Guns are harmless in the hands of people who respect them, and have learned responsible ownership and use.

Actually, OP, it is difficult to understand how this mother would allow her son to live closed off in her basement with access to a computer and violent video games, which she probably provided him. She should have exercised some control what went on in HER home.

The mother was unable to get her son the help she probably knew he needed but was unable due to him being an adult.

Gossip. I´m so sick of the media running rumors and gossip about these people. As above poster says, maybe the windowless basement was the only calming place the guy had in the house. Who knows if he played violent video games? And who´s defining violent? Is it Super Hero Squad violence where the Hulk and Wolverine bash each other? Or is it Grand Theft Auto which has no redeeming social value whatsoever? Or Call of Duty? Or Lego Batman where they bash each other to pieces only to reform again?

I was sick of the perfidious media before this but now I can barely hold me breakfast down thinking about them and their nasty little agendas. Such jerks.

From its picture, the woman and her sons lived in a rather large mansion in one of the costliest areas in the country, and reportedly her ex-husband--wanting to make sure that his son was well provided for--was giving his ex something like 250K per year in child support.

Lanza was also apparently early diagnosed with mental illness, she caught him burning himself with a lighter, and, yet, his mother--with all the "wherewithal" in the world--had him in regular school, not one tailored to his needs, and allowed him to sit in a windowless basement and obsessively play violent video games, and dwell on violence and weapons?

Gee, looks like a "ticking time bomb" to me.

One thing that definitely needs changing ASAP is the way law enforcement and other public officials manage the release of information after things like the Sandy Hook massacre. They appear to be stuck in the pre-instant media and pre-internet days. They drag their feet. They hold back. They refuse to say what they know even though they know they know it. This was appropriate before the era of truly instantaneous mass communications. It is not appropriate any longer. It risks grave social damage. The needless delay in making everything that is known available results in the proliferation of theories, rumors, false narratives, misinformation, all of which has an effect and takes on a life of its own. When such errors are permitted to exist and flourish, they are not necessarily completed corrected when the truth is finally revealed. There is a kind of burn-in on the cultural motherboard that can have a lasting effect.

Juridical concerns are legitimate reasons for withholding information from the public - but I do not think that most of the time that is the only reason law enforcement is so incredibly stingy and slow with information they already possess. They just don´t seem to realize that times have changed, that minutes are now days, and that delay leaves a gap that is somehow going to be filled in by theorists and speculators.

I think the point is that, back then, several very innocent by today’s standards decades ago, it was B & W films, cap guns, Gene Autry, the Lone Ranger, and simple toys for kids were often sticks you could straddle with cloth horse heads, not ultra-violent video games, and the standard was bad guys who gave up, or got shot and dropped and never bled; a fairly restricted stock of pretty benign, pretty much bloodless images and violence.

Nowadays its SAW, the Chain Saw Massacre, and a host of other slasher movies, blood splatter, gore, and violence in video games, in movies, on TV, in song lyrics and images, all in life-like sound and color, virtually everywhere you turn, and each new “entertainment” tries to top the other in gore and shock value. Intense violence and images—bound to influence people for the worst, change their views of the world, their values, their expectations, their tolerance for violence and bloodshed, and their behaviors --that would never in a million years have been shown in the past.

So, it’s the relatively small store of not so violent and no so visual and powerful, fairly unrealistic violent actions and images of several decades ago vs. an ever growing, 24/7, virtual 360 degree coverage, tidal wave of ever more intense, violent, and bloody images and actions filling people’s heads, and there to desensitize and accustom them to violence, blood, and slaughter, and to powerfully influence them.

Our modern day equivalent of the Roman Arena that we tell ourselves is "harmless" because no one is actually killed, but which is the template for such actual killing.

There is speculation that the mother never tried to lock the guns away from this young man.

We cannot know what was in the house when the mother went to bed Thursday evening.

Maybe she had one handgun available in her bedroom for self protection, and the rest locked away.
Adam Lanza was reportedly very smart, if she had one and he was determined, he could have found the one that wasn´t locked away.
After he had killed her in her bed, he could take all the time he needed to find the key to unlock the rest of the guns that may have been locked away for safety.

Since they lived in a state that makes it almost impossible to hospitalize an adult against his will, you can only speculate as to what steps Mrs. Lanza had taken to try to get her son the help he needed.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more.

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House
