it's not that simple, having little kids being killed by other kids is says something about the community these kid grew up in.

i agree it's not movies or games or guns that caused this kind of behavior, but trying to clean up this mess will require some hard measures and if no new gun laws can be passed then the there might be the need for movies and games laws to pas.

because the amount of guns available there glorification combined with these games and movies amongst a lot of other things is whats causing these sick kids to act like this.

it's like drinking and driving.
done separately it's good wholesome fun nothing wrong with it.
it's doing the two in combination is what kills people!!

I think it's pretty ignorant to say guns in videogames causes violence Iv'e been gaming for 30 yrs now and 90% of the games Iv'e played through those years have been very violent. I also watch nothing but horror movies.
so by your case or should I say theory I should be the most violent human being on the face of the earth. I should have killed over a thousand people by now.

It's our politically correct society that is to blame. There used to be a time when we culled the mentally ill from the herd, now we just turn our heads and hope not to offend anyone by saying Timmy( or Adam) is not like the other kids, he needs help. But no, lets ban guns and violent video games/movies instead. Punish the majority because of the few.

It is the Parent who is responsible to take 5 minutes to go into the settings and censor what they allow their children to play and watch on not only consoles but the internet and T.V.....Not the Governments.
