A Possible Motive in the Sandy Hook School Shooting? Did Adam Lanza Act Before His Mother Could Commit Him?


Today, FOX News reported that Adam Lanza, the perpetrator of the Sandy Hook Massacre, had a possible motive for his murder spree.  Some are reporting that his mother was planning to commit him.  Here is some video…

The Daley Gator has more on motives as well…

The Other McCain, who I stole part of that headline from, reports that we mayhave a motive in the Newtown shootings

We now have the first clear suggestion of a motive:

NEWTOWN, Conn. –  The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped  because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility . . .
[The creepy little weirdo], targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing  his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she  loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25 . . .

“From what I’ve been told, [the creepy little weirdo] was aware of her petitioning the court for  conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told “[The creepy little weirdo] was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just  wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I  think this could have been it, what set him off.”

A senior law enforcement official involved in the investigation confirmed  that [the creepy little weirdo’s] anger at his mother over plans for “his future mental health treatment” is being looked at as a possible motive for the deadly shooting.

While the left continues to use the event to press for their long time cause of gun confiscation, others are looking at reform in terms of how mentally ill people are treated.  While evil can’t be stopped in all cases, at least my man, things can be done to decrease the risk.  And, since people that aren’t going to follow laws against killing people, gun control isn’t going to do a thing.  It would not have stopped Adam Lanza, and it will not stop the next mass killer.


  • Very disturbing news.

  • It is so sad all of that had to culminate in 26 lives lost and a multitude of people devastated, especially during this special season of the year.
    On the second bit of information, I can’t understand why people who are against guns can’t see that more gun control laws are not going to solve the problem. We have way more gun control laws now then we had in the 1950s etc, and things are just getting worse and will continue to get worse as we remove God more and more from our society.
    All gun control laws do is take guns out of the hands of good, law-abiding citizens. The bad people who want to kill other people will still be able to get their guns on the black market.
    I don’t own a gun and probably never will, but I whole-heartedly support the 2nd Amendment regarding guns.
