FOIA Records Show Gun Shop Had Problems Before Sandy Hook Shooting

The Connecticut Post found that the gun shop where the mother of the Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza, had purchased the firearms used by Lanza in the Newtown, CT, elementary-school murders had a history of deficient compliance with gun-shop rules and regulations.  FOIA records showed that the deficiencies mainly related to poor record-keeping. The newspaper cited one instance in which the gun shop was unaware that a gun had been stolen from its premises.
