    Nancy Lanza: Did paranoid, gun-crazed mother trigger Sandy Hook, Connecticut killing spree? | Mail Online

    'She would get very upset that he wouldn’t let her hug him:' Dysfunctional relationship of Sandy Hook gunman and his mother

    Nancy Lanza portrayed as 'survivalist' who stockpiled food, water and guns
    She was shot four times in the head, possibly as she slept, by her son
    Collection of guns included handguns, assault rifle and two hunting rifles
    Son Adam was reclusive, spending most of his time in adjoining bedrooms
    Friend: Mrs Lanza 'would get very upset that he wouldn’t let her hug him'
    Lot's of tidbits in the DailyMail piece. Don't know how many of them are true but I will say this about the DM, it may tend to sensationalize headlines but it's underlying facts usually have some truth to them.

    Police say a member of Adam’s family – probably his brother – has told them he suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism.

    Yes, Asperger's inhibits social interaction, a normal human function, to be deprived of that is to suffer.

    there is not enough here for me to say Aspie or not, but the seclusion thing is a part of the deal. Parents have to get use to this. Austistic kids do not like to be touched especially those lower on the spectrum.

    IF this person was low end AI then it could be that he saw nothing wrong with what he did. But then why kill himself. Remorse, Unlikely not part of the profile. Curious.

    The person does not suffer because they see thier responses as normal. Its not a disease its a neurological, behavioral and learning disorder. Aspies see themselves as NORMAL and the rest of you are off, so no big deal to them. HFA Autistics however and some higher functioning Aspies like me enjoy human contact, but we are the minority.

    Well, Fiddy- it's pretty apparent that he was suffering from something.

    It's a poor choice of words, which implies that Asperger's is a bad thing and needs sympathy, perhaps even fear (if you start making the connections between those searching for quick correlations and overgeneralizing the conclusions they can derive from those correlations).

    Asperger's is on the Autism spectrum, and many people have it (I have something very similar to it). My old college roommate had it. Now, while I did not have a great experience with him, those negatives were not so much Aspergers' as it was about his own conscious choices.

    Then I would be suffering from what I have. I don't.

    The bolded is exactly what many people are proposing to do, with the gun control issue. There is a sizeable number of people who would like to see restrictions placed on people who have what we consider *abnormal* mental and psychological functional status. Whether or not we can call Asperger's something that one "suffers" from, seems to be in the eye of the beholder. I personally think that suffering happens across the board, to differing degrees, and to place people in high-risk categories, based on a history of diagnoses, is a slippery slope, and uncalled for, as there are multiple factors which play into any one individual's mental stability, at any given point in time.
