While the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting’s horror cannot be comprehended or quantified, knowing that Adam Lanza had enough ammunition to kill every student in the student in the school may bring a very little bit of solace and relief, knowing that the number of casualties could’ve been in the hundreds.

Of course, in no way, shape or form does this take away from the gravity and absolute grief of the situation, but Adam Lanza had multiple clips holding 30 rounds each for the high-powered rifle he used to kill 20 children and six adults.

If he had enough time, Adam Lanza would’ve been able to take out nearly everyone in the school that houses over 700 students.

Adam Lanza shot himself in the head just as he heard police drawing near to the classroom where he was slaughtering helpless children.

“There was a lot of ammo, a lot of clips,” said state police Lt. Paul Vance


“Certainly a lot of lives were potentially saved.”

Vance said Adam Lanza had hundreds of rounds of ammunition left when he was found with the self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The chief medical examiner has said the ammunition was the type designed to break up inside a victim’s body and inflict the maximum amount of damage, tearing apart bone and tissue.


Lanza had a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle and two handguns on his person when his dead body was found by police, and he also had a shotgun in the car parked outside of the building. 


“The Bushmaster was used in the school in its entirety and the handgun was used to take his own life,” Lt. Vance said in a Sunday afternoon press conference.

All the victims at the school were shot with a rifle, at least some of them up close, and all were apparently shot more than once, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver said. 

While it is still time to grieve and mourn the horrific tragedy that occurred on Friday, we must, at some point, take some solace in knowing that many lives were spared due to the swift response by the police department.
