Stop blaming games and guns. The human race has always had violence in it and the worst mass murder in a school involved no guns.

These mass murderers are loners EVERY TIME. Our society needs to learn to deal with these people, and be proactive. These people don't go to "anti-bullying" and other support groups; they must be approached.

It seems like before video games were the scapegoat, it was the Matrix and Hollywood action movies and prior to that, it was Rock'n Roll.
