The son of Peter Lanza, Adam Lanza, shot and killed his mother, Nancy Lanza on December 14, 2012 using her own gun.  He then went to Sandy Hook Elementary school and shot and killed twenty students and six staff members before killing himself.  Until now, Peter had not given interviews or made public statements regarding his son’s actions.

Adam’s mother, Nancy Lanza, had always had guns in the home.  Neither her, nor Peter, believed that having them in the home would be a problem for Adam.  Peter did, however, find them unnecessary.  He thought his son was safe, cautious, and a rule follower.

Adam had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Reflecting back, his father believes the diagnosis could have been masking that something else was wrong.  Adam may have also had schizophrenia when looking back on some of his actions.

Andrew Solomon, who spoke with Peter Lanza about his son, Adam Lanza.

Solomon told “The Today Show” that Peter is haunted by what happened and he wishes he could go back in time and fix it.  Had his son never been born,he said, this never would have happened.

Peter thought that his ex-wife, Nancy, may have masked some of what was going on with Adam leading up to the shootings.  Peter had not seen his son in two years before the shootings so does not know how severe he may have gotten.  He does not blame his ex-wife though, because she tried harder than he did when it came to their son.
