I read in the paper earlier that Adam Lanza owned a website dedicated to Satan.

so he was a religious nut than, that explains everything! The Devil told him that playing games would make him into a monster. Too bad we can't put Satan on trial!

Would be nice if you can post a link or picture to article though.

This isn't the one i read but it has mostly the same info.

The fact that he was simply a nut should be enough to convince anyone that games did not cause him to shoot other people.

Convenient how the NRA left out that bit of info.

And should it impact game sales. I miss the days when someone did something wrong they took the blame and payed for their mistake. Now everyone just looks for something to put the blame on be it tv, video games, or in this case guns.

What days are you referring to? Back when we blamed commies for everything? When women were accused of witchcraft?

Avoiding responsibility and blaming others is a pretty common theme throughout history, except these days there are fewer genocides that result.

Your overall point is fine, but there has never been a time in human history when people accepted responsibility for their mistakes more often.
