Connecticut Massacre Gunman, Adam Lanza, Killed His Mother, A Teacher At The Elementary School 1st Before Gunning Down Her Students. President Obama Speaks [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Adam Lanza is the name of the 20-year old gunman who killed 27 people, including 20 children between the ages of 5 and 10 inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

The shooter entered the classroom of his mother Nancy Lanza, who was a teacher at the school and killed her before shooting 20 children, most in the same classroom according to the New York Times. Lanza also shot several adults before killing himself with a gunshot to the head.

There is a report that a family member of the killer was found dead at another location.

The mass shooting is among the worst in the nation’s history.

According to CNN the gunman used a .223 Bushmaster, a Glock, and a Sig-Sauer in the attack. No word on the models of Glock or Sig-Sauer.

Adam Lanza's older brother, 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, of Hoboken, N.J., is being questioned by police.

 

President Obama was visibly shaken when he spoke about the shootings during a press conference. Read part of what he said below.

 

"We've endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years. Each time I learn the news I react not as a president but as anybody else would as a parent.

 

"That was especially true today.

 

"I know there's not a parent in America that doesn't feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.

 

"The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.

 

"They had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.

 

Obama sighed.

 

"Among the fallen were also teachers - men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams. Our hearts are broken today for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these children and the families of the adults we lost.

 

"Our hearts are broken for the parents of the survivors as well, for as blessed as they are to have their children home tonight, they know that their children’s innocence has been torn away from them too early, and there are no words that will ease their pain.

 

"As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it’s an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago - these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. And we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.

 

"This evening Michelle and I will do whah every parent in America will do - hug our children a little tighter and tell them that we love them.

 

"There are families in Connecticut that cannot do that tonight and they need all of us tonight.

 

"May god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of scripture heal the broken hearted and bind up their wounds."


**UPDATE**

 

Fox News is reporting that the shooter's mom Nancy Lanza was shot in the face and killed at home prior to her son, Adam Lanza, going to the elementary school and gunning down her entire class.

How can you all sleep at night? How can you justify allowing ONE person to own or to freely and legally (just because Americans have the so called right)to purchase not just a firearm but THREE!! WHY!!! The Second Amendment has claimed 27 more lives. This will happen again, and again. Happens all the time. You will never change your ways America. On behalf of Great Britain i'm sending sympathy and condolences to the victims and their families. Shame on you and your laws, don't you think that the world was a different place back in 1791?????
Look in the mirror and ask yourself is this right?
Yes we have firearms in the U.K, but we can't just walk into a store and pick one up like you can, we don't have massive venues open for the public to view and buy firearms like you can. How many more men woman and children must die for something to be done about this "obvious" problem.
