Default One Year Ago - Sandy Hook School

Exactly one year ago I was shocked and disgusted over the heinous murders of twenty elementary school children and six adults at the Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut. Within hours of the crime, politicians and the media executed the Rham Emanuel rules of politics, that suggest taking advantage of a crisis to push through political ideology and, they emphatically stated the need for more gun control legislation. One prominent Connecticut Senator ridiculed and criticized the NRA and Wayne LaPierre on positions stated at that time for controlling violent crime: enforce current laws already in the books and address the psychological characteristics leading to acts of violent crime. That same Senator many months later has since declared his own positions and they include the very same NRA interests. No apologies however have been given the NRA or Wayne LaPierre.

An abbreviated version of the official Connecticut State Police report on the Sandy Hook School shootings released to the public last month, among other details, proves the long standing serious mental health issues exhibited by the criminal, Adam Lanza. Similarities in behavior between Lanza and all of the other mass murderers who have committed their sick acts in schools, movie theaters, shopping malls, etc. are obvious. Lanza was obsessed with mass murders. He retained media articles on high profile murders, wrote a book in fifth grade documenting his long-term obsession with mass violence, displayed lack of empathy and frequently played graphically violent video games. All of these facts are documented in the official State Police Report however, the mental health professionals that treated Adam Lanza have stated they “…did not see anything that would have predicted future behavior”.

In order to reduce the incidence of violent crime, perhaps the mental health professionals should revise their diagnosis upon realizing an obvious potential threat. In the meantime, we will continually hear the declarations of “gun violence” as though the guns are committing the crimes not the individuals responsible for handling them.

It sucks for sure but continuing to dwell on won't fix it and only adds fuel to the fire for the anti gun nuts. Hell, even the town of sandy hooks has asked for privacy this year.
I agree, let it go.

I think you are preaching to the choir. Tell that to the media and many politicians.

This thread reminds me that today is the 1 year birthday for my AR. Wasn't really interested in the platform but Sandy Hook kicked me into buy mode incase I couldn't get one in the future.

Still only one AR but in the past year I've taken up reloading and have bought/sold or traded for about 30 long guns and pistols. I've had so much stuff go through my hands this year I can't remember all of it. I have so many primers and powder stocked in my basement the house will probably lift off the foundation if it ever goes boom!!!

It has definately been largely influenced by the anti's. I don't think I would be accumulating at the current pace if not for them. I've also taken up competitive pistol shooting and that is a whole other area to buy for.
