    I prep but not for 12/21 or for space aliens or zombies. I prep because events like hurricane sandy happen, earthquakes, and sadly even riots. No fiat paper money like ours has lasted for ever, and if ours collapses because of continued over spending I would like to be prepared. It's just a guess but I'd say 80/90% of serious preppers take fire arm ownership and training seriously. My understanding is no range in the area of her home has ever seen her?

    I'm a prepper as well, and also a few of my close friends. I have enough to survive on for my family of 6 for 2 years if needed, including fresh water. Anyone wanting to get into it should watch "doomsday preppers" on cable. Good show for what to do and what not to do in case of emergency.

    Re: Nancy Lanza a "prepper"?

    OP report is based on a single interview of a single family member. Going off half-cocked (no pun intended) is what got brother Ryan Lanza fingered for the shooting before the truth came out.

    I think people should in all cases be a bit more calm and less credulous when a news source puts out info. I think that there is a LOT going on underneath the surface that will eventually shed light on why this young man did such a horrifying thing.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    I saw that, but the title of the article and the reporting itself was nothing less than sensational. Every other piece about her, every other comment about her, there is no mention of this, but only praise for her and her sunny attitude and giving nature.

    Re: Nancy Lanza a "prepper"?

    I didn't say it was just one media source. I was referring solely to the OP article cited, which cites a single interview with a family member, with no corroboration.

    ADDED: A quick search of other news articles alleging that she was a prepper are all referring ONLY to a single interview with Marsh Lanza, the woman's sister-in-law.

    Multiple news sources repeating the words of one individual is NOT corroboration. Once additional individuals confirm the information of Marsh Lanza, then we can reasonably discuss what effect being a prepper may have had on her son.

    I think "interview with a family member" to be the functional statement in your post.
