Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza desperately wanted to join the Marines, and although his mother originally supported the idea, she changed her mind when she realized that he would not be able to handle the hardships of the Armed Forces.

Ellen Adriani, a friend of Nancy’s (the shooter’s mother) told the New York Post that Nancy told her son that if he was ever injured in service, that doctors and nurses would need to tend to him- Adam Lana hated being touched.

He preferred being alone in his dark basement playing one person shooter games online. He shot his own mother 4 times in the face while she was sleeping, with her own gun, before he went on to kill 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown Connecticut.
