The mother of the gunman who killed 20 children and seven adults in America’s worst school massacre, was a gun-proud “survivalist” preparing for economic collapse, it has emerged.
Nancy Lanza, whose gun collection was raided by her son Adam for Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook school, was part of the “prepper” movement, which urges readiness for social chaos by hoarding supplies and training with weapons.

oh my god they have deleted it... what the hell? these are legitimate news sources.....
THE mother of the loner who massacred 26 pupils and staff at a US primary school may have played a major part in his catastrophic mental breakdown, it emerged last night.
Friends and family portrayed Adam Lanza's mother Nancy as a paranoid "survivalist" who believed the world was on the verge of violent, economic collapse.
She had been stockpiling food, water and guns in the large home she shared with her 20-year-old son in Connecticut.
Mrs Lanza, 52, was a "prepper" - so called because they are preparing for a breakdown in civilised society who apparently became obsessed with guns and taught Adam and his older brother, Ryan, how to shoot, even taking them to local ranges.
That backfired horrifically on Friday when Adam Lanza began his killing spree by shooting his mother dead in bed.
He fired four bullets into her head possibly as she slept then took three of her guns to Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, where he killed 20 children and six staff.
Lanza's aunt Marsha said Nancy was "self reliant" and that they talked a lot about how she was preparing for the economic meltdown.
She said her former sister-in-law was meticulous about never leaving guns out, but made no secret of having an imposing firearm collection.
It included not only the two handguns and semi-automatic assault rifle used in the killings but also two traditional hunting rifles.
She would boast about them in a local bar and also showed them off to her landscape gardener.

'Paranoid' about an economic collapse?
How about PREPARED?
Anyone with their head not deep within their anal crevice can see that an economic collapse is past due.
That aside... All this ANTI-GUN sentiment is being pushed by media owned by people who perpetrate and perpetuate violence to make more money... "Order out of Chaos".
You who think those forms of news sites are 'credible' or 'legit'.
Maybe you should lower your fluoride intake and wake up.
