    a connection between this family and one of ours, and that I was why I wanted to make the connection with homeschooling was verified before people went and made assumptions about that.

    •  I'm curious about the home schooling thing. (0+ / 0-)

      Why does that seem important to you?

      We home schooled our daughters for part of their education. A local championship teen robotics competition team features several home schooled members.

      Home schooling is a way to educate your children.  It has nothing to do with guns.

    •  I think I see part of it -- Adam Lanza was removed (0+ / 0-)

      from public school in his sophomore year of high school and home schooled.

      He was having trouble at school -- one of the more common reasons why kids get home schooled.

      But that doesn't exactly make a pattern.  The Columbine killers, for example, weren't home-schooled, nor the Northern Illinois shooter, the Virginia Tech Shooter, nor the Aurora shooter, etc. For that matter, Lanza received the vast majority of his education in public schools.
