EXCLUSIVE: Gunman’s ‘survivalist’ mother was OBSESSED with guns and stockpiled supplies as she planned for economic collapse before son shot her in the face while she lay in bed

  • Nancy Lanza, 52, a ‘survivalist,’ was  preparing for the end of the world economy by stockpiling food
  • She was killed by her son, Adam Lanza,  before the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in  Connecticut
  • She had five guns registered to her name,  two of which her son used for killings
  • Adam’s father, Peter, is divorced from the  mother and lives with new wife in Stamford, Connecticut

The mother of Newtown school massacre gunman  Adam Lanza was a survivalist who was stockpiling food because she thought the  world economy was on the verge of collapse.

Nancy Lanza began hoarding food and water  because she feared that the onging financial crisis was going to bring about the  end of civilized society.

She reportedly became ‘obsessed’ with guns  and taught Adam how to shoot, but on Friday in a grim twist he blasted her to  death while she laid in her own bed.

Law enforcement sources told the Hartford  Courant that  she had not gotten up – and could have even been asleep – when her son killed  her.

The disclosure raises the prospect that Adam  could have had the same apocalyptic views as his mother, and that she could have  even encouraged them in him.

The Mayan Apocalypse, which the ancient Mayan  people thought would mark the end of the world, will supposedly take place on  December 21, although it is not clear if Adam thought that was the  case.

In an interview the killer’s aunt said Nancy  Lanza was ‘self-reliant’ and indicated she was a ‘prepper’, or a person who  prepares for Doomsday by learning essential survival skills – like how to shoot  a gun.

Speaking from her home near Chicago,   Marsha Lanza, 57, said: ‘She was  stockpiling food. We talked about prepping a  lot. She was getting ready  for the economic collapse.

‘I think she had the guns for self-defense  because she lived alone.’

She added that Nancy was ‘meticulous’ and  would ‘never leave the guns out.’

It was revealed yesterday that Nancy Lanza  had taken Adam to a shooting range and taught him how to use a firearm before he  turned a gun on her and shot her dead, then executed more than two dozen  terrified children and teachers at an elementary school.

She had legally purchased five firearms, all  registered in Connecticut, according to police records.

‘She said she would often go target shooting  with her kids,’ Dan Holmes, owner of the lanscaping firm Holmes Fine Gardens,  told Reuters. He recalled that she once showed him a ‘high-end rifle’ that  she had purchased.

‘She was very proud of it,’ he told the New York Daily  News. ‘She loved  her guns.’

Adam killed his mother in the home they  shared on Friday morning by shooting her in the face using one of her own  guns.

Adam then allegedly took his mother’s car  keys and several guns belonging to her – including a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both  pistols, and a .223 caliber rifle – and drove her car to Sandy Hook Elementary  School, where he massacred 20 children and six adults, before shooting himself.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting,  it was widely reported that Nancy Lanza was a kindergarten teacher at the  elementary school.

But Newtown Superintendent of Schools Janet  Robinson said Saturday that she had ‘never met’ Miss Lanza and that she was not  in the school database as a staff member.

Some reports alleged that Nancy had  retired  from working as an educator many years ago to take care of her  son, Adam, who  allegedly had behavioral and personality issues.

Nancy and Adam lived in a well-to-do part of  Newtown, a  prosperous community of 27,000 people about 60 miles northeast of  New  York City…
