I never went to school dressed in yellow and eat dots that I found in the hallway. Games aren't the issue, it's parents that don't know what the hell they are doing.

I blame the parents. I have been playing violent games for 20 years. I would never even consider shooting someone (ever, not just in a situation like this) I always understood that games were fictional.
I bet the kids parents talked about shooting people and taking revenge of the slightest thing. Bad parents (well, role models) lead to bad kids. Children are like mirrors. the copy almost everything they see, especially if it comes from someone they respect. It is the lack of positive role models that is the root cause of 90% of cases like this.

It's not ALWAYS the parents fault. Parents can't watch their kids 24/7 and control everything they do, say, watch, play, etc. That's unrealistic. Games can have an adverse effect on kids. I'm not sure why you all ignore that.

Well would you like me to comment on the entire US instead of just Texas? Is the fact that this occurred in Texas, where there are basically no restrictions on the number of guns a person can have, no waiting period, and no permits on anything but handguns, lost on you? I will admit that it was bad parenting, because there is a law in place to prevent kids from getting their hands on the guns, but the fact that there was a gun in the first place is the real issue here.

I agree, but it is the parents that have the control over teaching their children what is acceptable and what is not. A video game does not turn a good kid into a hellion over night. I do not believe a kid all of a sudden shoots his friend due to a video game. I am guessing that there were other violent tendencies and issues that pre-dated this shooting.

All I am trying to say is that the parents have the ability to counter act the bad influences in a childs life. When I was younger, I hung out with some very shady people and I have done some very shady things. If it were not for the counter acting effects of my family and the positive support I received from them when I was at my worst, I would not be where I am right now.

I understand as well that not all parents have the ability to spend enough time with their children (also, the kids may want to have nothing to do with them) but, the parents should make sure that there is some sort positive role model (brother, uncle, big-brother/sister etc.)



edit: I also agree that the fact that the kid was able to get a hold of a gun is a major factor. he was obviously noty mature nor educated enough to be trusted with it.
