The media keeps telling us the guns found in school belonged to the mother, though the evidence may not show that:

the guns used in the rampage to the ones the woman owned.
Police have not confirmed
that hers were the weapons used in the slayings.
Nancy Lanza had numerous weapons registered to her, including a Glock and a Sig Sauer. She also owned a Bushmaster rifle -- a semi-automatic carbine
chambered for a .223 caliber round. However, federal authorities cannot confirm that the handguns or the rifle were the weapons recovered at the
The Associated Press reports a Henry repeating rifle
, an Enfield rifle
and a shotgun
were recovered. It was not clear exactly
where those weapons were found.
Marsha Lanza, Adam Lanza's aunt, said it was her understanding that Nancy Lanza kept three guns in the home
His mother had legally registered four weapons
, his father two.
Lanza tried to purchase a rifle earlier this week at a store in Danbury, Connecticut, according to NBC News.
If the aunt is correct that Nancy Lanza only had three weapons in her home, they could have been the Enfield, the Henry, and the shotgun. Which means
the two pistols and the two rifles found at the murder scene did not belong to her. Which raises the question of how did Adam Lanza get them? If he
really did try to buy a rifle a week before, it strongly implies he didn't have any weapons ready for the assault--no Sig, no Glock, and no
Bushmaster. So who put these guns in his hands? Or can they even claim they found Lanza's fingerprints on them? I'll bet they can't.
Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Scherlach, shocked by the sounds of gunfire and shattering glass, bolted into a corridor from a conference

actual bodies, as they identified them.
A Newtown, Conn., priest had the "horrible" job of going door-to-door
informing families early Saturday morning that their children had been
killed in the elementary school massacre.
Why would the priest have to inform the parent's personally of the death of their children if they had already ID'ed their dead kid via photos? Do
you get the feeling they are making this stuff up as they go along?
