Since the alleged shooter’s father is VP of GE Capital, and (like “Batman shooter” James Holmes’s father) was scheduled to testify at the Senate Hearings on the LIBOR scandal, is there a LIBOR connection to this event?

You don't believe Adam Lanza was any kind of marksman, do you?
I realize people can shoot very fast semi auto but not young, inexperienced shooters.
Do we know he was inexperienced though? His mother owned the guns so he had access to them.
After the Lanzas moved to Newtown, "time passed, the family fractured and broke apart. Around the time of the divorce, Ryan Lanza [Adam's brother] graduated from college and moved to work in New York.
Adam stayed with Nancy Lanza, and her life took on strange habits. She didn't let visitors into their home.
She collected powerful weapons. And she began to bring her increasingly troubled son to 'multiple shooting ranges,' officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Monday, to practice using those guns together." The gun used to kill her, and those used in the attack on the school, may all have been registered to Nancy Lanza. Her interest in guns, according to friend Mark Tambascio, grew in recent years. "She took it up as a hobby about three years ago, target shooting," Tambascio told the New Haven Register. "She didn't talk much about it to me. Just, 'Oh, I went shooting today,' you know. Nothing else."

The Holmes case in Colorado makes more sense in that regard.
But when you have research indicating that 90% of mass shooters were on SSRIs, I think you have to rethink the use of those drugs.
