Blaming games again? They have little to nothing to do in this :/ I mean... I played Burnout for 5 years, and that doesn't mean that, as soon as I get a car, I'm going to crash other vehicles and blow my car up just for fun Of course it's bad and suicidal, so why do it?
A bunch of other posters said it before be, but this won't solve anything. You can't take someone's video games because of a massacre that someone else committed. If Lanza was influenced by a horror story, would there be book burnings, and/or banning said books from libraries and bookshops??
And is it concrete truth that the shooter was influenced by video games? What about his mental health?
Thankfully, I had no plans to visit Connecticut. Seeing as this was sponsored by their chamber of commerce, its a pretty obvious stunt. I'd reach down and thank them for burning plastics by raising all commercial taxes by the minimum amount possible for 'showing you aren't above being immature apes'.
..they shuldn't be playing them in the first place. Parents are evil... evilll. Get them Ben 10 for Christmas not Call of Duty, or heck Final Fantasy but its no surprise all I ever see in stores is games with soldiers holding guns. At least Borderlands and Far Cry 3 bring effort. They should play those.
