Adam Lanza was ‘getting worse’; ‘burning himself with lighter’; his mother Nancy was ‘losing him’

December 17, 2012

People can talk gun control all they want, it’s still un-American to restrict an entire population based on an act of one so clearly disturbed individual.

Less than a week before her son would launch his horrifying attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun-loving mom Nancy Lanza knew “she was losing him” and that “he was getting worse.”

A drinking buddy of Lanza’s told the Daily News that her son Adam had long been troubled and rarely came up in conversation.Adam, who killed Nancy Lanza, 54, before unleashing a nightmarish attack that killed 20 children and six others at the school Friday, was prone to hurting himself, the drinking buddy said.

“Nancy told me he was burning himself with a lighter.

In the ankles or arms or something,” he recalled of a conversation they had about a year ago. “It was like he was trying to feel something.”

    Dan, I think I would be more careful than to republish something a claimed “drinking buddy” claims to have said.

    IF you checked this out, I apologize.

    “I asked her if she was getting him help, and she said she was,” the friend recalled.

    The dad remarried and moved further away, and the mom was left to raise this very difficult boy. I’m sure she was getting him help, but the wheels of psychiatry grind slowly. The ONLY thing the mother did wrong was she didn’t remove the guns from the house. She should have done this.

      And made herself helpless…


      And you or I have no idea what she did to secure her firearms, do we?
