    Sandy Hook massacre - will the video games card be played, again?

    Apparently, the Sandy Hook shooter was 20 years old. Chances are - he was playing video games. How long do you think it will take the media to make a connection between playing video games and the massacre he committed?

    Russia isn't afraid of US dude. That's why they are sending their bombers like 60km out of your shores. Infact they give 0 fucks. They know you wont dare to touch them.

    I'd say tomorrow's headline, or in the coming weeks will be a congressman's bill limiting all video games in the country, like always, its the blame for it.

    I'm sure it won't be long. Video games always get hate after these types of incidents.

    I just want to take this opportunity to share this again.

    People killed people before the games were long invented. This argument is invalid.

    Clearly their parents had sinned and the children was punished for it.

    There should be a mandatory parenting course in high school which everyone has to pass.

    There are way too many shitty fucked up parents with shitty fucked up kids, some of which result in events like this.

    Not to diminish the horrible events that took place in Sandy Hook, but... this angry mob of people are scary. To think that these same people vote, work and live in the same society.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    Mob mentality of any kind is always scary and usually irrational.

    Claims without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

    It doesn't really matter, all sorts of claims will be made, not this one solely.

    I think I saw something about it on CNN yesterday.

    The killer liked Mass effect on his facebook or something, so they brought up the video games make people violent and go out and do violent things bullshit arguement

    They couldn't find any connection with the shooter at the gun range or gun clubs, so clearly Call of Duty lan parties are where he got his military training.

    Was probably playing World of Warcraft the morning he decided to do this.

    Just kidding.

    Video games don't create violence. Lag does.
