Surreal ! Killer's mom not only bonded over guns , but read Donald Trump to him as a child

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/06/us/mother-of-oregon-gunman-wrote-of-keeping-firearms.html?_r=0

In an online forum, answering a question about state gun laws several years ago, Ms. Harper took a jab at “lame states” that impose limits on keeping loaded firearms in the home, and noted that she had AR-15 and AK-47 semiautomatic rifles, along with a Glock handgun.
She also indicated that her son, who lived with her, was well versed in guns, citing him as her source of information on gun laws, saying he “has much knowledge in this field.”

“I keep two full mags in my Glock case. And the ARs & AKs all have loaded mags,” Ms. Harper wrote. “No one will be ‘dropping’ by my house uninvited without acknowledgement.”

One piece of advice Ms. Harper dispensed online for a parent with an autistic infant was to start reading to the child as soon as possible and to use expressive gestures. An online posting from six years ago included the unlikely revelation that she used to read to her son a book by Donald J. Trump, the real estate mogul now running for president, who recently suggested that childhood vaccines cause autism — a claim Ms. Harper dismisses in her postings.

“Fact: Before my son was even born, I was reading out loud to him from Donald Trump’s ‘The Art of the Deal,’” she wrote. “And as for the ‘gesture effect,’ I was practically a mime. And now my son invests in the stock market along with me, turns a profit and is working on a degree in finance. His language and reading skills are phenomenal.

Well...he was able to put together a manifesto so....
Reading to a kid a Donald Trump book?
It also talks about his autism issues and hospitalized when off his medications

1. No wonder he was fucking crazy!

 

Personally, if she was my mother, I would have shot her first.

6. Not happy but it would have saved a lot of grief for other families...

 

These murderers were made at home: The Oregon shooter’s mother armed her son — just like Adam Lanza’s did

...As disturbing as this is on its own – a mother who connects with her son not through a shared love of hiking or soccer or music or books but rather discharging military weaponry – it has a frightening echo that’s not mentioned in the Times story: Adam Lanza, the mentally disturbed man who slaughtered children in Newtown, Conn., also seemed to connect with his mother most powerfully through handguns. Nancy Lanza, in fact, took her son shooting when he was only four.

This was another case of gun loving derangement, not of a loving, hardworking single mother. Spare me your righteous indignation, por favor.

Odd statement, to say the least. That guy didn't have a chance.
