Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky says Adam Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six adults using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10-mm. handgun.
A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.
Prosecutors until now had made few details available, despite pressure to do so from the governor, who criticized leaks to the press and lawmakers who clamored for more details as they craft legislation on mental health and gun control.
Read the full article, every paragraph is written incorrectly with false information. Now they're saying the guns were his, not his mothers. They're saying he had a sick fascination with high capacity magazines (weird considering the push for gun control) and that he had his own gun safe!!
It's only my opinion, but clearly when we are faced with reading articles from the media that we hold to a high standard of truth and the great responsibility of reporting the news and we can't even get the facts, or a somewhat decent story.
"Aggression and violence in the ASD population is reactive, not preplanned and deliberate," he said.
What’s so unusual about this individual, if indeed he has Asperger’s, is the use of weapons. There are a few cases of people with high-functioning autism who have committed violent crimes using weapons, but it’s a very small number of people,” he says.

OP, never shy away from voicing your opinion on a subject, especially on ATS. Just wear an asbestos suit and let it fly!
Yes, the whole story stinks to high heaven, and the secrecy surrounding it is totally unnecessary unless they are lying. All other high profile shootings until the Batman shooting in Aurora, CO, were an open book. Suddenly, it's all secrecy and confusing stories put out by the MSM. The lies are so outrageous, it's hard to understand how they could publish this stuff and not be ashamed of themselves.
However, the vast majority of people who read these news stories or hear them do not exercise their critical thinking skills. It's called drinking the Kool-Aid.
The main thrust of John Milton’s Areopagetica is that in a fair exchange an argument based on the truth will triumph over lies and deception. Do you think that the major media’s use of terms such as “truther” or “conspiracy theorist” to designate individuals or groups with ideas and theories that differ from government and/or corporate entities is a productive part of the journey toward truth and enlightenment Milton envisioned?
What characterizes a conspiracy theory? How can we distinguish between a conspiracy theory and a valid assessment of a specific phenomenon, issue, or event?
The official theory of what transpired at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012 involves 20-year-old Adam Lanza going on a murderous rampage that resulted in the deaths of 20 children and 7 adults. Major media outlets appear to have unquestioningly gone forward with this scenario. In your estimation, have law enforcement and medical authorities produced evidence sufficient to support this theory of events?

What do you think? Am I over thinking it too much? Should I not worry about being told false information when I turn to the news to give me the facts?

When asked how the shooter had transported a .12 gauge shotgun in the glove compartment of his car, authorities responded that "He was very clever"
