    Nancy Lanza liked guns. The mother of the young man who killed 26 people in Connecticut and herself was a victim of his rampage collected guns and took her son target shooting, according to her people who knew her. Lanza “prepared for the worst,” former sister-in-law Marsha Lanza told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I didn’t know that they [the guns] would be used on her.” Authorities have said that the guns used in Newtown were registered to Nancy Lanza, though they are not sure how many she owned in all.
