"Most of this is pretty high level stuff we were aware of already. It just reminds me of what happened, you know, that a gunman stormed his way into an elementary school, shot to death 26 people, 20 of which were first grade boys and girls."

"I can't do nothing. My 12-year-old son said I hope that no other family has to go through this again. We have to do everything we can. It's time to evolve as a society. The conditions that exist now for this to happen on a seemingly regular basis that should be unacceptable."

"We shouldn't be embarrassed to say I'm treating my brain, so my brain is healthy. We have to retool our gun legislation. It's not going to infringe on anybody's right to bear arms. It's not going to cause any confiscation issues to arise. Universal background checks. Enforcing the laws that are already in place. Zero tolerance on trafficking and straw purchases. And the ban of high capacity magazines, outside of the shooting range. Those are common sense that gun owners and the majority of Americans support."

"We were very much connected. My wife, myself and we have a 12-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter and our little Daniel was seven. And we played a lot. We spent a lot of time, we'd read books together, we'd sit at the table and eat dinner together every night. So my son and daughter are experiencing a profound loss of their little brother. They used to sleep in the same bed together, all three of them, by choice. So Daniel's absence is absolutely profound in our house."

A cache of weapons including guns, more than a thousand rounds of ammunition, a bayonet and several swords was found in the home of the gunman who carried out the Newtown school shooting, according to search warrants released Thursday.
Adam Lanza killed 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School and took his own life within five minutes of shooting his way into the building, State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III said in a statement accompanying the release of the warrants in the Dec. 14 massacre. Lanza was found dead in the school wearing military-style clothing.
The arsenal seized from Lanza's home and the car he drove to carry out the massacre provided glimpses into the world of a troubled young man, but it does not answer the question of what could have motivated the attack. Investigators say it will take until June or later to complete the investigation.
Sedensky said Lanza killed all 26 victims inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10 mm handgun. He says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster.
Sedensky said 154 spent .223 casings were recovered at the scene. A loaded 12-gauge Saiga shotgun was found in the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing a total of 70 rounds of shotgun rounds, according to a warrant.
Mark Barden, whose 7-year-old son, Daniel, was killed at Sandy Hook, said he was not surprised by the details released Thursday.
"Most of this is pretty high-level stuff that we were aware of already and it just reminds me of what happened, that a gunman stormed his way into an elementary school and shot to death 26 people, 20 of which were first-grade boys and girls," Barden said.
