According to the aunt of Adam Lanza, Adam's mother Nancy was a "survivalist."

"Last time we visited with her in person we talked about prepping and you know, are you ready for what can happen down the line when the economy collapses," said the gunman's aunt, Marsha Lanza.

The reporter asked, "Survivalist kind of thing?"

"Yeah," said Marsha Lanza.

I Googled "prepping" and discovered that there's a thriving right wing movement dedicated to this form of survivalism; first time I'd heard the term in this context.
