Search warrants unsealed Thursday morning show that within five minutes of getting inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., 20-year-old Adam Lanza killed six adults and 20 first-graders, using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle and a Glock 10 mm handgun.

The Hartford Courant reports that Lanza had an arsenal of guns and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, swords and knives at his home.

The warrants were made available on the same day a pro-gun control ad (see below) featuring relatives of victims began airing in Connecticut, to mark what activists are calling a National Day to Demand Action to end gun violence.
