Sandy Hook Mass Shooting Led to 3 Million Extra Gun Sales and Spike in Firearms Deaths, Researchers Say

Almost five years ago to the day, 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In the next five months around three million more gun were sold across the U.S. than usual, and 60 extra accidental gun-related deaths took place.

This is the first time a mass shooting has been linked to a rise in accidental deaths. Above and beyond the 26 people murdered at the school, 60 firearms deaths—including 20 child deaths—were associated with the tragedy. To put this in perspective, there were around 45 accidental gun deaths per month in the U.S. in 2012. An increase of 60 in five months is substantial.

The research was published yesterday in Science.

Review board grants NCR Calgary mass killer extra privileges in hospital

CALGARY (NEWS 1130) – A Calgary man who was found not criminally responsible after killing five people with a knife three years ago is being granted extra privileges.

Matthew de Grood was suffering from a mental disorder when he attacked and killed Zackariah Rathwell, 21, Jordan Segura, 22, Josh Hunter, 23, Kaitlin Perras, 23, and Lawrence Hong, 27, at a house party in April 2014.

The judge in the case ruled de Grood didn’t appreciate his actions were wrong.

The Alberta Review Board held a hearing earlier this month to determine whether de Grood, who is housed in a secure hospital, should be granted more freedom.

Family members were notified by email Tuesday afternoon that the board will allow de Grood to go for supervised walks on hospital grounds.

He will also be allowed trips for medical appointments and treatment.
