Halo: Child Killer?

Geekscape writes: In this modern age of gaming, politicians love ripping into video games as a cause for violence. Most of these allegations are ridiculous. On September 5, 2008, an eleven year old boy from Johnson Creek, Wisconsin accidentally shot himself.

shooters are bad for young kids.

You know what... I hate Halo, yet I'm still appalled that people will blame a video game from these actions.

1) It was the parents that let this child's Xbox be his babysitter (Rated M game)
2) They left a loaded weapon in the house (he took out the clip but forgot to empty the chamber)
3) They weren't aware that he skipped school.

The sum of these points means irresponsible parenting... This story is a tragedy, but there are lessons to be learned from it...

stupid parents let stupid kids do stupid things that make gamers look stupid.

If your stupid enough to play with a real weapon at any age even though your 100% sure it's not loaded, then you should not play games or even watch movies which have weapons in them.

If every parent learned thier children that weapons are not toys, games are toys. Im sure this would not have happned.

Two things wrong with this picture here.

1. An eleven year old with an M rated game.

2. An eleven year old with a gun.

But hey, we all know its the games fault.

Who's fault is it that irresponsible parents get to have guns in their home?

"but they need it to protect them self!"

Well I have nothing against the 2nd Amendment but please people,keep your gun in a locked device with away from the hands of kids.

As for the Halo thing,I like Halo 1 and such but seriously its not for kids.
