Nancy Lanza Son, Adam
Adam Lanza was an American terrorist for an unknowable cause who committed three distinct atrocities: he killed his mother; he killed himself; twenty-six people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Twenty of the victims were children aged six to seven, with the remaining six being adult staff members. Lanza had shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home earlier that day, before driving to school. Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head as first responders arrived at the school.
The shooting is the deadliest mass shooting at an elementary school in US history, as well as the fourth-deadliest mass shooting overall.
The shooting sparked renewed debate in the United States about gun control, with proposals to make the background-check system universal, as well as new federal and state gun legislation prohibiting the sale and manufacture of certain semi-automatic firearms and magazines that can hold more than ten rounds of ammunition.
The Connecticut State Attorney’s office concluded in a November 2013 report that Lanza acted alone and planned his actions, but provided no explanation for why he did so or why he targeted the school. Lanza had Asperger syndrome and had depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder as a teenager, according to a report released in November 2014 by the Office of the Child Advocate, but they concluded that “neither caused nor led to his murderous acts.” The report went on to say, “his severe and deteriorating internalized mental health problems … combined with an atypical preoccupation with violence … (and) access to deadly weapons … proved a recipe for mass murder.”
