So basically, he was a frustrated sociopath who had easy access to guns. Truly tragic, but not at all surprising.

Well, if he did not have "easy access to guns", this may not have happened.

And he had to bring video games into it as well. Nobody will ask how a 15 year old is given access to games designed for adults, they will blame games anyway.

I don't think that the girl could be charged, too young to know better.

Might be considered off topic, but I think it's relevant because this topic revolves around this kid playing violent video games...Francis shares his thoughts on video game violence, nsfw - language (also fair warning to turn down your volume it gets loud):



On topic... the parents should have had their guns locked up. One could make an argument that they are just as much to blame for this as the kid for not doing so.

His father was a pastor. I guess, the morality of the scripture didn't settle in his brain. And why would a pastor need an assault rifle in the first place? It kinda goes against the doctrine of forgiving your enemies (unless he was was pastor of a religion that advocated blood fued).

not true. we cannot blame on video game. I believe that they made guns long time ago like 1500's or 1600's A.D. Also it came from wild western in USA in about late 1880's where they had guns everywhere.

Its not like I can go to a super market and purchase an Assault Rifle.. This is exactly why we shouldnt ban guns. People still have access to them no matter where!. It wouldnt solve any of these killings of those using Assault Rifles.

The government needs to arm Walmart customers so they can defend themselves.

Wasn't so long ago that rock 'n' roll was being blamed for violence, there will always be a scapegoat instead of going after the root cause.

Funny how all the pro-gunners jump on the defensive and try and make excuses for why guns shouldn't be banned. Wonder if it would change your mind if one or more of your family are killed by a gunman who legally owned a weapon.
