The Witch Hunt for Video Games

December 12, 2012 will be remember as a day of great tragedy as this is when 20-year-old gunman killed 26 people in Sandy Hook Elementary School, 20 of which were little children between the ages of six and seven. As our country slowly recovers from the second worse school shooting in American history, only surpassed by the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, we start to look for answers to the simple, rational question of why.

Since then, various media outlets have been quick to blame various sources, from internet culture and social media such as Facebook and Twitter to the mentally disabled. The conversation of gun control has once again been renewed and politicians are now being pressured to establish new laws and take extensive measures in order to prevent something like this from happening again.
