Congress is now going to spend tax dollars forming a commitee about video games. Seriously? Let's blame everything and everyone except who is actualy to blame, the shooter. He KNEW what he was doing. Why else would he have killed himself when about to be caught. It's time to put the blame and punishment where it belongs, on the perpetrator NOT the victims and citizens. Let's face it if you can't distinguish fiction from reality, you don't need to be on the streets. End of conversation.

I can't believe that there was every any question as to who's fault it was. If Mario and luigi hadn't jumped on those innocent turtles the violence would have never started.

have you ever sat down with teachers,police,social workers,and ever noticed that in stead of looking at the parents, or no parents, it makes a difference. stop blaming every thing else, and put blame where it belongs. THE PARENTS!!!!!

Pretty sure splc cant sense a brick about to hit him upside the head let alone a little bit of sarcasm. Congress need to stop playing mommy and daddy and stop stealing from America. Im guessing the committee thats formed to research if video games are the problem got about 5 mil in which 4.99 mil went into the politicians pocket that formed the committee. Tax dollars hard at work!

Last I remember we voted congress in to represent us, not tell us what we can and can't do. Or possibly I just misunderstood the whole democracy process

I could care less the reason. Always why why why! The guy is dead, end of story. If we weren't so easy on criminals then this wouldn't be happening,so if ananyone want to blame someone then blame yourselves! WE ARE AT FAULT for allowing this to get as far as it has.

It's not always the parents fault. A parent can only do so much in raising a kid. You can teach and preach all you want, but ultimately it's the child that has to take the teachings and use them. Our society and government won't allow parents the disciplinary actions that the 40s 50s 60s 70s and early 80s generations kids grew up with. That in my opinion is one of the causes of why we have to deal with the problems today. When I was a child and acted up in school I got my butt busted, then went home and got it again from my parents. You can't do that anymore because you are abusing the child and the children now days know it.

Video Games don't mess up the minds of people. Only the Government does that job perfectly fine.

How do you define reality?
There are at least 5 other dimensions we cannot detect yet, but the math shows there are more than four(including time). I agree with you that if you cant distinguish between realities, you probably shouldn't be on the street, but there is so much more to reality that we are just beginning to find out. The only place I see to draw a line is if someone has a past history of being violent they should be taken care of(sent to someplace to get help, not locked away until the end of time). Even then, sometimes people just snap and start to destroy stuff.
Video games(or Guns) are not to blame, I would say that the parents have some responsibility(very small amount), but mostly the person who committed the crimes is responsible.

your right on the money on that. i'm not saying the parents are to blame. but what to do about how kids of today are. prime example i was walking threw cape mall, and i said excuse me, and these teenagers said go around bitch. i said get the hell out of my way before i call mall security. it is what it is on the truth! oh well! not one of my better days.
