Default Sandy Hook crime scene info released

http://www.wnem.com/story/21814424/s...-investigation


Numerous weapons including guns, several swords, a bayonet and a gun safe were found inside the home of Sandy Hook Elementary School killer Adam Lanza, according to search warrants released Thursday in regards to the shooting investigation.
Stephen J. Sedensky III, the State's Attorney for the Judicial District of Danbury, said before heading to the school, Lanza shot his mother in the forehead with a .22 caliber rifle while she slept, and there was no indication of a struggle.
He then took her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School where he shot his way into the building and opened fire killing the 20 children and six adults but a Bushmaster .223 caliber model XM15 rifle. The bushmaster, Sedensky said, was loaded with a 30-round capacity magazine. Fourteen rounds were in the magazine when the weapon was recovered by officers and there was one round still in the chamber.
Sedensky said Lanza took his own life with a single shot from a Glock 10MM handgun and was also in possession of a loaded 9mm Sig Sauer P226 handgun. Lanza also had more ammunition for the weapons he had on his person as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster, each of them containing 30 rounds.
In the area of the shootings were six additional 30-round magazines and contained 0, 0, 0, 10, 11 and 13 live rounds, respectively. In total, 154 spent .223 casings were recovered from the scene and investigators believe that the shooting only lasted five minutes.

After the mass shooting had ended and officials began to investigate what happened, they searched the vehicle Lanza parked outside of the school and inside they said they found a loaded 12-guage shotgun in the passenger compartment. The weapon was then moved to the trunk and locked up by officials for safekeeping.
Sedensky said the all of the weapons used in the massacre were all purchased by Nancy Lanza, Adam's mother, and said there is currently no indication that Adam tried to buy the weapons himself but was denied.
The gun locker at Lanza's home was open when officers arrived.
It had been unlocked, officials said, and there was no indication it had been broken in to.
Inside the home, numerous items were seized as evidence including a book called Train Your Brain To Get Happy, with pages tabbed off. Also, a holiday card containing a check was made out to Adam Lanza by his mother, Nancy, for the purchase of a C183 (gun).
Investigators seized a smashed computer hard drive that sat atop a desk in what was believed to be Adam's bedroom. A witness said he was an avid gamer and liked to play Call of Duty.
Investigators also seized various school paperwork including a report card from Sandy Hook Elementary School as well as paperwork from college.

All of the warrants were released with the redactions requested by Sedensky because it's still an ongoing investigation. Sedensky said Connecticut State Police, the Newtown Police Department and other state and federal law enforcement officials are "not only continuing to investigate, but are still in the process of compiling reports, statements from witnesses and documenting evidence."

The Sandy Hook Promise was created in the wake of the mass shooting, and after learning of the release of the warrants, co-founder Tim Makris released a statement and said:
"The information revealed today underscores the need to turn this tragedy into transformation."
"Nothing that is discovered or discussed about the shooter will bring back the children or educators our community lost on Dec. 14. Public attention should focus not on the shooter but on ensuring the safety of our children and preventing future tragedy.
"While legislation is not the only answer, it's time for Congress to pass sensible measures supported by the vast majority of Americans to reduce gun violence. It's time for our legislature to move forward with the strongest measures possible. The country is united that something must be done; our representatives should act without delay."
Some information in the warrants will still be kept private for another 90 days.
Gov. Dannel Malloy released a statement on Thursday following the release of the Sandy Hook search warrants by the Office of the Chief State's Attorney.
"I want to thank the Office of the Chief State's Attorney for providing this information today. In some cases, the facts really do speak for themselves, and in this case they only add starker detail to what we already knew.
"We knew that a disturbed individual entered a school and fired 154 rounds in less than 5 minutes, killing 20 innocent children and 6 dedicated educators. We knew that he had ready access to weapons that he should not have had access to. We knew that these weapons were legally purchased under our current laws. We knew he used 30 round magazines to do it, and that they allowed him to do maximum damage in a very short period of time. And we now know that he left the lower capacity magazines at home.
"This is exactly why we need to ban high capacity magazines and why we need to tighten our assault weapons ban. I don't know what more we can need to know before we take decisive action to prevent gun violence. The time to act is now."

United States Sen. Richard Blumenthal also weighed-in on the release of the warrants.

"The sheer volume of ammunition, guns and weapons revealed and retrieved in these searches is absolutely staggering and should provide strong evidence for the urgency and importance of common sense gun safety measures. The apparent easy access to this huge trove of arms and ammunition by a clearly disturbed and deranged individual shows the need for a comprehensive strategy to stop gun violence," Blumenthal said in the statement. "This means background checks for both gun and ammunition purchases, as well as a ban on high capacity magazines containing more than ten rounds of ammunition—sensible measures most Americans support. I will use this evidence to help drive the national discussion and the Senate debate for passage of legislation in April. My hope is that it will also help lead to action in our state legislature so that Connecticut can be a model for the nation."

Uh oh, here they come after the big bad black rifle again!

Convienant timing for the info release with the vote coming up in congress

All the focus is on the tool and not the individual wielding it. Owning several guns and lots of ammo doesn't equal mass killings, but our politicians and other elitist fucks will never see past that.

After news broke a few days ago that the weapons ban was dead I figured it'd slow the gun and ammo craze a bit. There were a couple of 5.56 S&W AR-15's and a bunch of ammo at Cabela's last night.

With this news hitting the headlines all over the country today, by tonight I figure they and every other FFL dealer will be cleaned out again and all the prices will jump up another notch

I figured their was a reason the ban was dropped, and they had a card up their sleeve they were waiting
to play. I wonder if this was the card.

What is a C183? All I can find online is that it's a camera.

Sounds like reloading of rifle was involved.

Magazine capacity was apparently not an issue.

Sorry to be the cold-blooded scientist, but it's clear. 150_ rounds fired in less than five minutes. Perp dropped partially empty mags traversing room to room (just like video game taught him). Magazine size was immaterial.

Anybody figure out what happened with regards to that "new" report being published? The hysteria of the Newtown shooting has died down quite a bit, so the media had to put out that story to fan the flames and get the perceived need for their gun control efforts back in the spotlight again. Media manipulation back in action, plain and simple. Coinciding perfectly with Barry giving that little speech today with the mothers of gun victims standing right behind him, trying to shame people who disagree with their gun control efforts.

154 rounds fired.

26 dead.


One thing we can conclude form this:

Adam Lanza was no marksman.

That's assuming one shot one kill. 2-3 rounds per kill would be 50%ish accuracy.
