Newtown shooter Adam Lanza’s home contained an arsenal of guns, more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, Samurai swords, a bayonet and knives, say newly released search warrant results reported by the Hartford Courant. The warrants show police found the items after searching Lanza’s home and car after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting where he killed 20 first graders and six adults. One witness told police that the school was Lanza’s “life.” Police found a copy of his report card from Sandy Hook in the house.
Families of the victims were briefed Wednesday about what details were going to be released in the search warrants. “It was obvious his intention was to do a lot of damage and he was certainly capable of doing that…considering the amount of ammunition he had,” said Mark Barden, father of slain first-grader Daniel Barden. Of Adam Lanza’s mother, Nancy, he said, “as a parent, I would think that she probably could have made different choices with how she came to spend her time with her son. Fishing comes to mind.”
