Less than a week before her son would launch his horrifying attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun-loving mom Nancy Lanza knew “she was losing him” and that “he was getting worse.”
A drinking buddy of Lanza’s told the Daily News that her son Adam had long been troubled and rarely came up in conversation.
“She just looked down at the glass and said, ‘I don’t know. I’m worried I’m losing him,’” said the bar pal, who asked not to be named, of the ominous conversation at the watering hole My Place in Newtown, Conn.
“She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him.”
“Nancy was a responsible gun owner,” the friend said. “It was important that she teach her son how to responsibly use a firearm.”
Her son, who she trained to be more deadly with assault and hunting weapons, was becoming more violent and detached. Her son still had access to these guns. Is there a way she could be a responsible gun owner and have guns in a house with her son?
