Nancy, Mother of Gunman Adam Lanza, ‘Would Often Go Target Shooting With Her Kids’

Nancy Lanza, mother of Adam Lanza — the 20-year-old gunman who shot dead 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on Friday — reportedly took her sons to a shooting range and taught them how to use firearms.

The Daily Telegraph quotes local resident, Dan Holmes, owner of Holmes Fine Gardens, a landscaping firm in Newtown, as saying that Nancy, 52, mother of Adam, 20, and Ryan, 24, was “a big, big gun fan.”

Reportedly, Holmes also said Ms. Lanza once showed him a high-end rifle she had purchased, noting that “she was very proud of it. She loved her guns.”

Similarly, the Denver Post reports that Holmes witnessed Nancy talking about her gun collection at craft beer tastings at the local restaurant and music bar called “My Place.”

“She had several different guns,” said Holmes. “I don’t know how many. She would go target shooting with her kids.”

It’s now understood that Adam Lanza shot his mother in the face at the home they shared, before driving three miles and forcing his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School.
