Adam Lanza - mental health?

Anyone seen a doctor's diagnosis proving he had an Asperger or other spectrum disorder diagnosis? I have personal experience with such folks and can tell you that unless he never went to a doctor in his life, he would have had a diagnosis; else, all this is just hot air skepticism based on anecdotal information from family and toadies.

    It's dangerous to start linking what he did with Asperger's and Autism just like it was dangerous in Columbine for the media to link the tragedy with "jock vs nerd."

    There can be do doubt that the mental health authorities and current system plus Nancy Lanza’s ridiculous and irresponsible attitude to letting Adam carry 3 of her guns at the time she was extremely worried about his mental health, were the primary causes for these fatalities. However, his father is not exempt from blame. I have just seen a picture on the Internet of Adam Lanza at one year of age or possibly younger, playing with a real gun, surrounded by an arsenal of weapons. His Dad now says he wishes he had never been born. I am sure Adam also wishes this now, in retrospect, that he had never been born, certainly not into that family. They, the crazy gun culture of America to which they ascribed and contributed, combined with the absence of tight gun laws in the USA are entirely responsible for this incredibly cruel tragedy. There is no psychological test that can adequately safeguard the community against such a crazed gunman, and no way of knowing when they will strike, where, or at whom. The only answer is to ban the guns out of the hands of the general populace, especially heavyweight military hardware, for whom such guns were not designed in the first place.
