Law enforcement: Connecticut school killer chose Sandy Hook Elementary because it was a "gun-free" zone

Editor's Note: In keeping with the desire to deny glory killers the thing they desire most - notoriety - Buckeye Firearms Association replaces their names with the term "the little coward" - an appropriate term coined by Tactical Defense Institute's John Benner.

Fox News and The New York Daily News are reporting that a law enforcement source has said that Connecticut police believe the Sandy Hook elementary school spree killer specifically chose the "gun free" zones because he knew there would be no resistance.

Referring to a 7' x 4' spreadsheet produced by the little coward in tiny 9-point font, documenting past mass killings and attempted murders, the official stated:

"We were told [the little coward] had around 500 people on this sheet," a law enforcement veteran told the newspaper. "Names and the number of people killed and the weapons that were used, even the precise make and model of the weapons. It had to have taken years. It sounded like a doctoral thesis, that was the quality of the research.

..."They don't believe this was just a spreadsheet. They believe it was a score sheet," the unidentified career cop told [columnist Mike] Lupica. "This was the work of a video gamer, and that it was his intent to put his own name at the very top of that list. They believe that he picked an elementary school because he felt it was a point of least resistance, where he could rack up the greatest number of kills. That's what (the Connecticut police) believe.

The unidentified officer also told Fox News that investigators also believe the little coward's affinity for violent video games influenced his determination not to be killed by responding officers.

"They believe that [the little coward] believed that it was the way to pick up the easiest points," he continued. "It's why he didn't want to be killed by law enforcement. In the code of a gamer, even a deranged gamer like this little bastard, if somebody else kills you, they get your points. They believe that's why he killed himself.

"They have pictures from two years before, with the guy all strapped with weapons, posing with a pistol to his head," the officer continued. "That's the thing you have to understand: He had this laid out for years before."

This is the second recent multiple victim shooting in which there is evidence that the little cowards chose their targets based on the fact that they were "no-guns" victim zones. In the Aurora, CO theater massacre last July, out of all the movie theaters within 20 minutes of his apartment showing the new Batman movie that night, the little coward selected the Cinemark theater - it was the only one where guns were banned.
