Before driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother Nancy at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived, he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. It was the second deadliest mass shooting by a single person in American history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, and the second deadliest mass murder at a U.S. elementary school, after the 1927 Bath School bombings in Michigan. The incident prompted renewed debate about gun control in the United States, and a proposal for new legislation banning the sale and manufacture of certain types of semi-automatic firearms and magazines with more than ten rounds of ammunition. A November 2013 report issued by the Connecticut State Attorney's office concluded that the perpetrator acted alone and planned his actions, but no evidence collected provided any indication as to why he did so, or why he targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Transcript: The History of the View on Firearms By: Joshua Wilk The Late 1920's and the 1930's view vs today's world's view. Guns were usually used for recreation and fights. Enjoyment came out of hunting. Fighting was a small incident between two neighbors. In today's world, the uses for hunting are primarily the same. The main difference between the past and the present is that gun fights are illegal. In the 1930's, game hunting was very basic. It was practically trying to shoot an animal close to you. Hunters were not very skilled. They would target anything from a rabbit to a crow. Hunting tended to be quite unsuccessful. It was used as more of a way to fool around, for young teenage boys who at heart did not really want to kill for food or sport. The second use for hunting was food. Meat was expensive for families in the thirties. Hunting may have been the most convenient way to put food on the table. Survival hunting was work and had to be productive, missing an animal meant missing dinner. Fights were a smaller reason for owning a firearm. As previously stated, fights took place between two neighbors. If the fathers of the houses did not like each other, they would fire a few shots at each other. The fired shots were used to scare the neighbor, not to hit them. When someone was shot, a real feud began. In today's world, hunting is almost always used for sport. Poorer people do not have enough money to buy a gun. Yet hunters do not rely on animals for food, they still will eat the game to be resourceful. Anyone who hunts will take pride in their work, and try to be successful. They do not goof around. Fights are now illegal. The law saved many innocent lives from a careless, enraged neighbor. Overall, gun's usage and perspectives have grown and developed over the years, in dignity and sense.
