The Hartford Courant is reporting that Sandy Hook gunman, Adam Lanza, used only 15 rounds from some of the 30 round magazines he was carrying.

They suggest video games are the reason that Lanza reloaded his weapon so frequently as this is a common practice in most first person shooter style video games.

It is also reporting that Lanza was wearing earplugs during the incident.

Authorities find it strange that Lanza was wearing earplugs since he obviously planned to never leave the school. However, anyone that has ever had their hearing protection accidentally knocked off at an indoor rifle range probably knows how disorienting indoor rifle fire is without hearing protection.
