Difficult as it may be to believe, a major liberal media outlet is reporting that one of the reasons that the Newtown shooter, Adam Lanza, targeted the elementary school was because it was an easy target. CBS News reports law enforcement sources are saying that Lanza’s motivation for the slaughter was violent video games and an obsession with killing more people than the Norwegian mass-killer, Anders Breivik. From CBS News online:
Two officials who have been briefed on the Newtown, Conn., investigation say Lanza wanted to top Breivik’s death toll and targeted nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School because it was the “easiest target” with the “largest cluster of people.”
Evidence shows that his mind, sources say, Lanza was also likely acting out the fantasies of a video game as he killed 20 first graders and six adults at the school. For Lanza, the deaths apparently amounted to some kind of “score.”
Do you suppose this might give any of those gun-grabbers on the Left pause for thought about the insanity of their so-called gun-free zones?
