Too young leads to killing!

4 posts in this topic

There are GTA fans of all ages, it's a fact of gaming life, but the more these kind of things happens, the more the pressure will increase for action, you can think so far, things have been fairly moderate, or forgotten the backlash of violence in the past, but I believe this never goes over well, and as gamers under the gun, we have to have our voices heard as well....

As usual, the video game publication is going to try and shift the blame to firearms. Then after that, the NRA will retort by shifting the blame back over to video games. *yawn*

 

As tragic and shocking as this incident is, it's a matter of irresponsible parenting. An 8-year-old shouldn't have been allowed to play GTA and granny shouldn't have left a loaded gun out where the kid could get to it.

Another school killing today with a very young kid killing a much beloved teacher and wounding two others before killing themselves, and guess where the gun came from? The child's parents. Something is truly wrong, and one talking head on TV says there's no more massacres or attacks against the public by a lone gunman then statistically happens over years at a time historically, but that media makes it seem more often. I'm not convinced, I think media has something of a role to play, but it can't raise your kids either.
