Everyone who lives in the United States knows about the Sandy Hook, Columbine, Aurora, and various other shootings that have happened in schools and public places over the last few decades and beyond. With each shooting, there is always speculation as to why it was done. In each one, at least recent ones since the inception of shooters and violent games, those speculations have fallen on a few topics. Mental health, drugs, abuse, and games always come up somehow. To most news outlets, parents, and people in general, violent video games seem to be an actual reason. Which to me is preposterous, can video games really have an effect on young adults and people who are older going on these rampages?
