CT Gun Laws Prevented School Gunman From Purchasing Rifle Four Days Ago

So we guess since gun control laws worked we must have … more gun control.

The gunman in the Newtown massacre tried unsuccessfully to buy a rifle three days before he killed 20 children, six adults and himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Connecticut and federal officials told NBC News Saturday.

Adam Lanza, 20, went to a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Danbury, Conn., on Tuesday to buy the weapon, but was turned down because he didn’t want to undergo a background check or abide by the state’s waiting period for gun sales, the officials said.

Still, Lanza was heavily armed when he forced his way into the school Friday morning – after killing his mother at their home in Newtown.

The officials said he had four handguns on him as he stormed the 600-student school and shot his victims – clustered in two classrooms – at close range. There was a rifle found in the car he drove to Sandy Hook.

Now it’s four handguns? Has the media gotten anything right the past 24 hours?

The motive for the mass killing was unknown, but officials told NBC’s Pete Williams that they were investigating whether Lanza is the person who had an “altercation” with four staff members at the school on Thursday.

Maybe the media and knee-jerk leftist politicians can take a deep breath and wait for the facts to come out. But hey, why do that when you can speculate wildly and call for disarming the law-abiding public?

    After the union goon’s assault in Michigan the Left asked if it was a false flag attack.

    Can we ask the same thing of the Newtown massacre?

    Was it a false flag op for the purpose of pushing gun control?

    My gun has killed less people than Teddy ‘The Swimmer’ Kennedy’s car.

    A gun is a great equalizer for self defense and it also gives the government pause before marching people off to the killing fields. Remeber the NAZI’s were actually national socialists, Mao was settign up the great leap forward and Stalin was developing a workers utopia. All grand goals with the result being a dictatorial government that kills millions of it’s people for ‘fairness’ and the common good as defined by the dear leaders. The first thing the facists and communists do is conficiscate all firearms and leave the people defenseless. Unlike a car, a guns main purpose is to give the abused woman, the innocent gay person and elderly couple a way to stop the violence immediately. Thugs and murderers understand what a gun means and these attacks are stopped everyday because of the equalizing ability of a firearm.

    Chicago , NYC and DC have the most draconian gun ownership laws and have the highest violent crime rates, so all gun control does is keep a law abiding citizen from owning one and defending him or herself from the violent criminal? Gun laws do not stop criminals, never has never will.

    As the nut case in the elementary school murders shot his way into the school to begin his rampage the truth that when seconds count Police are minutes away hold true. One can only speculate that if the principal were armed would the violence have ended at the front door of the school with the intruder dead?

    Contrary to the socialist mantra, the state is not god and man has the god given right to defend himself from nut cases and facist governments. That is why we have the 2nd amendment and why I will never give up my ability to defend myself and my family.

    The massacre in CT was a response to the coming economic collapse

    Last night it also emerged Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world.
    Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’. She added: ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense.
    ‘She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’

    … a ‘economy collapsing’ ? … trillion dollar deficits ? .. but who is responsible for that ? … the Mayans ?
