SANDY HOOK KILLER ADAM LANZA: "Deeply Disturbed", "Had a Tortured Mind", "A Ticking Time Bomb"

The real question we should be discussing: why wasn't this sick young man institutionalized?

Adam Lanza is being described as a "deeply disturbed kid" who was "subject to outbursts."

The 20-year-old man who killed 20 children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School after murdering his own mother, may also have suffered from Asperger's syndrome or another personality disorder.

“This was a deeply disturbed kid,” a family insider [said]... “He certainly had major issues. He was subject to outbursts from what I recall."

Another family friend said Lanza had a condition where he couldn't feel pain.

...Nancy Lanza had previously worked at Sandy Hook but several sources said they believed she was more recently spending her days caring for the troubled Adam.

Not only was Lanza deeply disturbed, he appears to have been a hard-core "gamer" (video-game addict).

He was dark and disturbed, a deeply troubled boy from a wealthy family who unnerved his neighbors and classmates.

Mass murderer Adam Lanza, 20, was a ticking time bomb, people who knew him told the Daily News... Lanza, who friends and officials said suffered from Asperger’s syndrome or a personality disorder, had a tortured mind.

He was socially awkward and at times unstable...

One family friend described Adam Lanza as a gamer who “rarely spoke.”

“He was weird,” said the friend, who asked to remain anonymous. “He was quiet.”

I think it's time for a national discussion on allowing kids -- especially deeply disturbed kids -- to have access to first-person shooting games.

It all sounds to me more like a failure of the mental health system than an excuse to attack the 2nd Amendment. But I'm sure when ObamaCare is fully implemented and gub'ment becomes the sole distributor of mental health benefits, such tragedies will never occur again.

Sounds like that conversation ought to be between Mom and Dad, not the U.S Congress. Keep It Simple.
By the way. If you live with mentally ill family members, do not ever give them the combination to the gun safe.

If you enjoy playing games where you shoot people you need to go get a job! If pushing a trigger button is a hobby, get help and grow up losers!

I don't really want the federal government to define "disturbed" or "properly trained" or even "violent video game." Only after i have paid $400 for a twenty hour class on responsible game ownership will i be allowed to purchase heavily taxed copy of Hello Kitty Island of Adventure, and i'd lose that carefully distributed right when they found out i voted for a Mormon or had a child withing 500 feet of my home. By the time i got Kitty White to the level with the coconut tree puzzle i'd have to cough up another $400 for a required bi-annual refresher class and they'd ban the IPad version that can be concealed under clothing.
