Do you believe Adam Lanza's mother is responsible for school shooting? Although she wrote a check for the guns he purchase. Do you believe she has a mental problem?
Yes, she is responsible. Parents and their parenting skills are the #1 (and technically #2) aspect(s) that determines how a child ends up and what they do later in life. Not only is it likely that Adam Lanza's parents were negligent--even if unconsciously so--but his mental instability sure as hell did him no favors, either.
Poor parenting and undiagnosed/untreated mental disorders were the deciding factors here.
The adult person who did the shooting is responsible for the shooting, he did what he did intentionally. No matter how unfortunate his mother's judgment might have been, she did not mean for anyone to die.
I'm interpreting the question to be "What caused Adam Lanza to perform the shooting," in which case I stand by my previous post. :V
Yes, the idiot was responsible for the shooting. But you add a mother, that was in total denial about her screwed up kid's mental state, buys an arsenal of guns, takes him out to gun ranges....gee, what possibly can go wrong?
I'm not usually big on the "blame the mother for everything" excuse.
But what in the world was Mrs. Lanza thinking when she purchased
that arsenal of weapons?
Forget knowing she had an unstable son in the house.
What could SHE possibly need them for?
