Video Game Violence Aides Connecticut Shooter

Standard

We can cast blame on “lax” gun laws or analyze the media diet of shooter Adam Lanza and still come to the same conclusion. In the end, Adam was human. To deny that we as humans are evil is to deny our humanity. Since the fall of Adam and Eve, sin and evil have entered our world. This should be no surprise to us as we consume the daily news and personally experience evil and injustice. Our world is a dark place.

Despite a possible mental illness, Adam Lanza was a human being with a free will. He made the choice to walk into that school and cause the physical and emotional destruction he wrought  His actions were calculated. At what point will we allow him to take responsibility for his actions?

Blame is easy. Personal responsibility, not so much. So let us blame violent video games. Adam was a kid, he must have played them, right?
