How can Newsday say “the danger wasn’t apparent, which suggests the massacre wasn’t preventable.”? 
So now it’s OK to have a child in your home who you never speak to? A child with significant mental health issues regularly taking target practice with assault weapons is “not so rare”?

Why is there no detail on how Adam Lanza, who killed 27 people including his mother, obtained the weapons?

Please stop saying there are no answers. There are answers. A pair of irresponsible parents ignored their own child’s mental health, and essentially gave him all the necessary tools to commit such unspeakable horror.
