Newton School Shooter Addicted to "Thousands of Dollars of Graphically Violent Video Games "

Instead of going after lawful gun owners why not focus on possible underlying causes of the shooting?

Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters asks why we only learn this fact now months after the deadly mass shooting? That's easy to answer. It's because it doesn't fit the political agenda of those seeking to limit the freedom of lawful gun owners. Sheppard points out that "if they had found a book by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter, or Glenn Beck it would have been all over the news. But mass quantities of violent video games and hardly a peep.

We should note that the only attention given to violent video games was Obama's proposal to spend $10 million on a study of the problem. Yeah, that will help.

Next time some gun grabber starts moralizing on the need for more gun control ask them why they don't do something about the real root of the problem!

So the underlying cause is that because there are violent video games, people will do terrible things?

This is the same argument that the idiot gun grabbers, censors, and general "government solution" morons use.

In both the case of guns and game, there's correlation, not causality, as the people who are inclined to kill people are attracted to a safe way to live their fantasy and the means to carry it out.

I know your desire to point out how the media wants to create its own narrative, but relpacing their bullshit with your own is no way to do it.

You mean mental illness and mainstreaming people who might have been better served in a supervised
setting. We can add incorrect medication, off the wall parenting
and media hallucinations.

People have been playing D&D but that
is different then first person shooters.
