Hmm. The firearms trade association is based in Newtown Connecticut.

Just too weird to be a coincidence.

Firearms trade association based in Newtown Connecticut 

Odd coincidence that the National Shooting Sports Foundation the trade association for the firearms industry is based in Newtown Connecticut.
About the National Shooting Sports Foundation
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 7,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.
Here is a link to their online publication, The Range Report
The Range Report, published four times per year by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, is dedicated to serving the needs and to helping meet the challenges of today’s shooting facilities.
So maybe Newtown Connecticut is not just another random sleepy rolling hills town out in the country and perhaps there were some people around town in the bars and restaurants that over a wine or three coaxed Nancy Lanza into becoming a patron of the local gun ranges and advised her on collecting assault weapons, expensive rifles, and ammunition clips.  Everyone in town seemed to know she was divorced and loaded and living in a big house.  She would probably be an easy sales “target” for a pro.

Here is the senior management team of the National Shooting Sports Foundation as shown in their 2011 report.   I would post the current team, but for some odd reason that link isn't working currently.
