So, let's see here...
What is the link in the chain of events that actually broke? The mother was by all accounts a good gun owner. She feared her son was nuts and dangerous. She may have tried to have him committed. Son got mad, went to the school he once attended, where Mom's friends worked, where she may have worked at one time and had some altercation. About his mother's plans? Don't know at this time. So he kills her, steals her guns, kills her friends, and kills as many of those kids she loved as he could.
Now, was it the mother's access to guns that are to blame? Note: He had to kill his own mother to get them.
No. The mother wanted to have him committed. But, wouldn't you know it? It's damn near impossible to have a person committed when they haven't tried to kill anyone yet. And who is trying to blame everything on guns?
The very people who made certain that crazy people are free to do as they please!

Thank you for the ping.
If Nancy was trying to have him committed, what resources would she utilize? If she was volunteering at the elementary school and good friends with school professionals, would not it seem logical she would seek their expertise? Perhaps the elementary school professionals were assisting in a mental health evaluation/intervention.
Sherlach, 56, was an expert in psychology, having earned her undergraduate degree in that subject at SUNY Cortland and a masters degree at Southern Connecticut State University.
Before becoming a school psychologist, she worked as a rehabilitation assistant at a psychiatric facility, at a group home for disabled adults and as a community mental health placement specialist.
Her experience in education included stints in the Redding, North Haven and New Haven public school systems before landing at Sandy Hook Elementary in 1994. During her time in Newtown, Sherlach kept busy as a member of numerous groups such as the district conflict resolution committee, safe school climate committee, crisis intervention team and student instructional team.
