HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut panel developing a report on the Newtown massacre is debating whether the victims counted in the dedication should include the shooter’s mother.
The gunman killed his mother before gunning down 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, and then committing suicide.
A draft of the dedication for the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission’s report references 26 victims. Commissioner Harold Schwartz said at a hearing Friday that he doubted whether it is “morally right” to not acknowledge Nancy Lanza as a victim.
Nancy Lanza purchased the rifle her son used in the massacre and the commission chairman, Scott Jackson, said it’s a difficult issue because she contributed to the circumstances that led to the tragedy.

Questions about Nancy Lanza's culpability have been part of a growing debate in the small town, especially since a report from the state’s Office of the Child Advocate indicates that it is likely she purchased guns and that the family often went to shooting ranges; that may have encouraged her son in violent fantasies and at any rate gave him access to firearms.
“It is reasonable to wonder what actions [Adam Lanza] would have taken and whether the Sandy Hook tragedy could have occurred at all if he had not had unfettered access to significant weaponry and ammunition,” the report says.

"Encouraged her son in violent fantasies?"
"Unfettered access to significant weaponry and ammunition?"

Right after he killed her...
She must not be a victim.

They had a whopping 20 min "debate" before settling on this outcome. This was not a fact finding commission but a political finding commission. And they will get massive media coverage on this when they finally stop leaking and just release it.

Oh, it's even better than that. They're apparently going to make even more stringent/insane gun control recommendations to the legislature. I'm starting to look at property down south.

Yes, it was posted in another thread a few weeks ago. The panel wants to ban all semi auto's or guns that accept magazines I believe. If you look at who makes up this asshat panel, it's all gov't employees, college prof's, doctors, etc. It's basically Malloy's panel, so it's not surprising.
