Sandy Hook Shooter’s Mother Collected Guns In Preparation For Economic Collapse

Sandy Hook Shooter’s Mother Collected Guns In Preparation For Economic Collapse
World

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter’s mother, the owner of the guns that killed her and 26 people at the school she worked at, purchased the guns in order to survive the coming economic collapse.

Nancy Lanza‘s gun collection was raided by her son, Adam Lanza, on Friday as he committed one of the most heinous crimes of all-time.

The shooter’s mother purchased the guns to prepare for the social chaos that would coincide with the inevitable economic collapse that is set to hit in the near future.

“She prepared for the worst,” her sister-in-law Marsha Lanza told reporters. “Last time we visited her in person, we talked about prepping – are you ready for what could happen down the line, when the economy collapses?”

It has also emerged that Nancy Lanza had spoken of her fears less than a week before the attack that she was “losing” her son.

“She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him,” said a friend of Lanza who did not want to be named.

Police disclosed that the 52-year-old had five legally registered guns – at least three of which her 20-year-old son carried with him during the attack.

Most victims were shot with an assault rifle, while Lanza also carried two handguns and left a shotgun in his car.

Democrats are looking to instill a new ban on the sale of assault rifles in the United States, after the previous legislation expired in 2004 and was never renewed.

This Anti-Bullying Commercial Means Well But Completely Misses The Mark
