Letter: Connect the dots before it’s too late

December 20, 2012 · Updated 4:04 PM

So, let me get this straight. You have an unstable, withdrawn, 20 year-old son at home according to the “doomsday prepper” mother.

She told friends last week that she was “losing her son,” saying “it was getting worse,” and that she “was having trouble reaching him.”

But, I guess it was still OK for the young man to have ready access to multiple guns with plenty of ammo?

Mrs. Lanza was so worried about the economy and the direction the country was taking, according to her ex-sister-in-law, that she was getting ready for “what could happen down the line when the economy collapses.” At home were five weapons: Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle, Glock 10 mm handgun, Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun, a shotgun and one still unidentified gun.

Mom reportedly “liked the single-mindedness of shooting.” She also “hoped, even with Adam’s problems, that he’d find a way to succeed.” Maybe, in his mind, anyway, he did.

Please, everyone. Let’s all try to connect the dots on these types of developing situations and start taking action of some kind, any kind, to help prevent further catastrophes like Sandy Hook. Please!
