"This wasn't a target shooting session requiring skill or marksmanship," wrote CW Wade in an analysis of the shooting on his blog Sandy Hook Facts. "It was a matter of pulling the trigger at close range. No one could miss."

Thorn finishes up his second segment by claiming that, "Lanza had established absolutely no online footprint: no email address, Facebook account, social media interactions, etc. It's literally impossible for an addicted computer geek to not leave a trace in cyberspace. But that's what we're encouraged to accept about Lanza."

Unfortunately, Thorn hasn't looked deep enough. In a Sandy Hook Lighthouse article, entitled The Shooter Among Us, Reed Coleman writes: "The perpetrator of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting left an online footprint that has been well-publicized: as I've covered before, he edited Wikipedia pages for mass shooters, posted on firearms forums looking for the most lethal weaponry he could legally acquire, and frequented a private forum dedicated to school shootings."

To substantiate his claims, Coleman has written multiple articles about this online activity complete with screenshots and links to source material.

The remaining part of Thorn's article consists of two additional segments that rely heavily on claims made by fellow AFP writer Pete Papaherakles and Sandy Hook conspiracy theorist Wolfgang Halbig. Those will be addressed in the next article of this series entitled, Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theorists Continue Getting it Wrong.
