    Why don’t you update the headline of your previous article to point out he was a teachers SON and not a parent. That’s how nasty unfounded rumors get started, when you put out erroneous information and DONT correct it.

    Btw that murderer is a blue blood, pasty face as they come. No thug, no “mooslim”, just ANOTHER effed up white dude.

    Someone once said to me, “I don’t believe in God, but I do believe in Satan”. It was not a statement of worship or preference, but simply of observation.

    I’m not down with that, but there are times that I damn sure understand why he would say it.

  • Andrew X, if he would observe the way Christians come to the aid of victims of these horrific crimes, he (and you) would be able to make the same observation about the existence of God.

  • Sam Stone

    Andrew X, many who do not believe, pray for safety whe in a situation like these people found themselves in.

  • Old Glazier

    Wow. no redneck accent? No four-wheel truck? Just another blue-state yuppie hipster ivy league mass murderer.

  • Comrade J

    MSNBC is already prostituting the tragedy.

    death of children is apparently political capital… yeah..

  • Objective Analysis

    Ryan shot and killed his mother at home and then went to the school to do the massacre. Liberalism is a deadly disease. The brainwashing that has occurred now without an emphasis of prayer in schools, God, love of “life”, etc… is really sad. Evil pure evil.

  • Tim Tomlinson

    I don’t think that’s the right guy. The guy on that Facebook page you have up there was on posting comments on Facebook AFTER the shooting.

  • lincoln’s wife

    More knee jerk lies from GP

  • Granny

    It is my understanding that his mother was the kindergarten teacher and he massacred her and her entire class of children at the school. It was his father who was found dead at home in New Jersey.

    Obama is yet again making this horrific tragedy ALL ABOUT HIM.. no
    one could feel more pain than he does?? help US dear Lord, please,
    we cannot help ourselves, Obama is campaigning against guns.. 😥

    Dude wrong guy. Gateway Pundit has lost it.

  • c

    gatewaypundit doesn’t take anything down ever

  • Granny

    Sorry folks – don’t blame Gateway Pundit for any misidentification. This ID and facebook page is what is being reported by WRTV and other stations as the shooter.

  • Sasja

    We all know that it takes time to get to the facts about any act especially one as horrific as this. My advice is to calm down, pray for the families of the poor children who were murdered by this evil man, whoever he is, and wait.

  • Sandy

    The gun did not commit this crime — the person with the gun did. If this jerk wanted to kill himself then that’s what he should have done. But it seems that narcissistic young people like this have to make headlines. Everyone has to get their 15 minutes of fame before they go out in a blaze of glory. They never think about all the lives they’ve destroyed to get their momentary high.

    Blame the entertainment industry. These merchants of blood and gore could care less about the damage they do to make a buck.

    Takeaway from the presser —

    “we’ll take meaningful action no matter the politics” —

    That’s it. I’m removing Gateway Pundit from my bookmarks. This website has officially jumped the shark.

  • John H Dorge

    Apparently Jim is incapable of taking down a post calling an innocent person a mass murderer, but is quite speedy to remove my post pointing it out.

  • Comrade J

    GP, when you get a chance would you update the post please?

    Also would you mind looking up the Commenters IP’s on this posting and letting us know if there is a sock-puppeting (multiple nics) troll around here? Or if there are many “oncerned” trolls that are more upset that the blog doesn’t get updated fast enough to their taste than 28 kids being slaughtered by a lunatic.

  • Sandy

    Lincoln’s Wife # 11 — get a grip. The guy killed a couple of dozen people most of them children. That’s the tragedy for these families. Gateway Pundit does its best to report the news — if you prefer MSNBC then go there.

    Actually, I took your post down for your comments about Jim. Since this is Jim’s thread, it is up to him to update it.

    re: #22 December 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm bg

    Several outlets — including Fox, CBS, CNN and —
    used a Facebook photo of a Ryan Lanza with ties to Hoboken
    and Newtown. It now appears to be the wrong Ryan Lanza.


  • Lily Bart

    Hey GP: Identify this guy – but don’t show him – don’t glorify him.

  • Look-Out

    Sadly, I think the report is that now there are at least 20 children who’ve died.

  • veronica

    He says it wasn’t him. You have the wrong person:

  • lincoln’s wife

    GP is NOT the news, its a blog. A terrible one at that.

    re: #28 December 14, 2012 at 2:31 pm bg

    just reporting what is being said, i’ve no idea who RL is, or
    what he looks like, could be who GP posted, could also not
    be as has been duly noted, and like someone else it’s GP’s


  • Look-Out

    It *may* be ADAM, Ryan’s brother, who may be the shooter instead.

    The guns used *may* have been registered in his mother’s name.

    Still alot of confusion.

  • Granny

    #32 – Lincoln’s wife –

    In that case, why do you bother wasting your time here?

  • Anono

    That’s NOT him, Fox News is reporting the shooter’s name is Adam, not Ryan. Plus, that’s a differenbt Ryan Lanza altogether.

  • bg


    Look-Out #30 December 14, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    yes, this is about the children killed, as well as those who
    survived the experience, not Ryan, Barry, or gun control..


  • centra

    Who’s to blame.
    #1 the shooter
    #2 the media and hollywood for making these murderers famous.
    #3 the anti gun activists. Gun free zones are easy targets. If a teacher or principle had a concealed gun the death toll would have been less if at all.

  • donh

    Picture of the REAL baby killer about to be circulated by MSNBC….>×249.jpg

  • Terd

    That pic is not him.

  • Mike Schmidt

    “Who’s to blame?”

    Who cares?

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    They’re now saying it’s brother Adam Lanza=shooter.

  • Look-Out

    Reporting now on FOX..Both the shooter’s mother and father have been found dead…

    Shooter is dead (in the classroom) and his brother *may* be in custody.

  • bg


    okay folks..

    they’re back to reporting his age as 20,
    and changed his name to ADAM LANZA..

    evidently the police cannnot CONFIRM anything as yet.. *sigh*


  • Matt

    From what I have read that is not the same guy. You need to verify or take it down.

  • centra

    Before Columbine how many of these gun free zone shootings did you see? The media and hollywood makes murderers famous.

  • Look-Out

    It *appears* Adam and Ryan are brothers and it’s unclear which one was the shooter.

    I think the mother and father were found dead in their respective homes. Dad, in NJ. Mom, in Conn.

  • lincoln’s wife

    And other people commenting with erroneous bullcrap need to shut the eff up. This is how dirty lies and innuendo get started. GP is a blog, not the news!

  • ashley

    they posted the wrong facebook page & now they dont even know if this is the mans name… that page they posted though.. he’s still alive .. smh

    moreLiberty #14 December 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    lots of news reporters ‘got it wrong’, however,
    they seem to have corrected their mistakes..


  • Granny

    The police might actually not even know who the shooter is or was. Or even if there was one or two. Typical.

  • Will

    [It is reported that Lanza’s mother works at the school and is one of the dead. That’s a dead giveaway that it was staged. Killing anyone who intimately knows the Delta subject must be silenced. ]

    A lot of people on here seem to be the same person.

  • to all those carping about jim hoft. jim hoft is in missouri, this happened in conn, he is relying on news sources who in their haste to get it first almost always get it wrong. take your complaints up with them.

    How can you be so irresponsible. I hope you are sued for thousands. It is time to control what is going on that destroys other peoples life just so you can be firsts.

  • LP

    How can you sleep at night. Your posting of the picture of the wrong person who was not the shooter has the potential of destroying the persons life. I hope you are sued for enough to shut you down. IT is time to control the worst parts of our media and you are one of them.

  • el polacko

    THIS IS NOT THE SHOOTER !! this post should be removed. you are putting an innocent man in danger with this irresponsible post !!!

  • Patty

    Many with the same name of the shooter was posted or tweeted and this was not the killer. Until more information and investigation is complete, not even the media should jump to any judgement.

  • Comrade J
  • Doug

    This incident with the school shootings is tragic to say the least. But dont be fooled by this tragedy and how the gun banners will use it for ammunition to further there agenda to turn public sentiment against ALL guns. But dont be fooled for the guns to be banned from the homes of Americans WILL not stop the senseless murder in our land. Lawless folks will actually rejoice at the disarming of its citizens. Guns will always be around by the sellers who want to sell guns on the black market.

    Oh, please do. You and the rest of your sock puppets.

    It’s obvious that the news reports are coming out with errors, as they always do. Grownups know this. You aren’t fooling anybody.

  • valerie

    This has already been posted in the comments.

    That article admitted to being at least one source of the wrong information, and suggests why and how the misidentification occurred. Jim updated with a new article. That’s all he needs to do.

    “NOTE: Along with all major media outlets, we previously reported the killer to be Ryan Lanza, now known to be the brother of the deceased killer, who is Adam Lanza.”
