Adam Lanza, the gunman behind the Sandy Hook Massacre in Connecticut, is said to have been a huge fan of Call Of Duty. According to the family’s plumber, he spent hours playing the game.

“It was a beautiful house but he lived in the basement. I always thought that was strange,” said Mr. Wlasuk, who went into the basement on several occasions while working on the plumbing in the house. “But he had a proper set up down there — computers, a bathroom, bed and desk and a TV. There were no windows. The boys were fans of the military. They had posters all over the wall in the basement.”

“They had one poster of every piece of military equipment the US ever made. It was a huge poster with every tank every made. The kids could tell you about guns they had never seen from the 40s, 50s and 60s. The kids who play these games know all about them. I’m not blaming the games for what happened. But they see a picture of a historical gun and say ‘I’ve used that on Call Of Duty’.”

Adam Lanza is said to have ben emotionally detached in his teens years and for this reason school officials assigned him a psychiatrist- they felt he may harm himself. Lanza was said to have had a development disorder.

According to friends of his mother Nancy, she introduced him to guns in order to instill in him a “sense of responsibility”. Nancy was likewise a gun enthusiast. His mother even took him to a shooting range only days before the killing spree.

“She told me she had wanted to introduce (her kids) to the guns to teach, especially Adam, a sense of responsibility,” a friend told NBC television. “Guns require a lot of respect and she really tried to instill that. And he took to it. He loved being careful with them. He made it a source of pride.”

And then he went on to kill his mother, 6 other adults, and 20 6 to 7-year-old children. Children ought to be taught that there is no need for guns- that is the sort of responsibility that they need to learn.

The last thing any person who is believed to be mentally disturbed or unstable needs to be introduced to is semiautomatic weapons.
