(CNSNews.com) –While President Barack Obama is moving ahead with executive orders and legislation to further tighten gun control in response to the mass murder committed by Adam Lanza at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., neither the toxicology report on Lanza’s corpse nor the police report on his crime have been completed.
Lanza attacked the school on Dec. 14, killing 26 people, including 20 children. Before going to the school, he killed his mother at the home where he lived with her. When police arrived at the school during his murder spree, Lanza shot and killed himself.
A spokesperson for the Connecticut State Police told CNSNews.com on Friday that the investigation of Lanza’s mass murder is ongoing and that the police report on it is still “several months away.” They could not comment further because the investigation is still open.
Also, the office of the state’s chief medical examiner told CNSNews.com that the results of a toxicology test on Lanza will not be available for “quite some time.” Once it is completed, the office said, the cause and manner of death will be made public but not the actual toxicology report.
Despite no police report or toxicology test results, lawmakers and the president are calling for stricter gun control and mental health reforms. Obama and others have called for reinstating the 1994 “assault weapons” ban; and on Jan. 16 Obama issued 23 executive orders to further address gun violence.
Among the executive orders is one clarifying the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) so that it does not prohibit doctors from “asking their patients about guns in their homes,” and launching a “national dialogue led by [Health and Human Services and Education] Secretaries [Kathleen] Sebelius and [Arne] Duncan on mental health.”
At present, however, it is not documented that Adam Lanza suffered from a mental illness or that he was taking any medication at the time of the shooting. In fact, according to news reports, an autopsy showed that there was “nothing unusual” with Lanza’s brain, and the toxicology report is not completed.
