I"m on the fence , I believe she was a victim because she was killed and there are some here who do see her as that and include her in the 'numbers', some do not. There are others who feel that the children/adults who died were much more the victims (which I agree with), than Nancy Lanza.
I've heard she was a doomsday prepper which is why she had the stash of weapons.
I'm sure even if they were in a locked vault, her son knew how to access them.
I think something also not touched on, is how HARD it is to actually get help for mentally ill people. If your kid threatens to kill you and you turn them in, they are let back out within a short period of time.
While I don't want to make this a 'govt thing', mental illness is not taken seriously, unless they are deemed severe, there isn't really much done.
ANd then you have the ones who clearly have had issues most of their lives, and just snap, while the signs were there, again, parent's aren't "heard" or the parents are in denial..
Sad no matter how you look at it. I'm thinking she knew her son had alot of issues, but either chose to try and fix them herself, or not..You don't hear much about the father being involved, and only they know the true story
