I played Asteroids a lot when I was young, and I grew up to be a triangle.

I love my gun nut friends. I have a couple guns, and like guns, and hunt and target shoot and all that, but I don't call myself a gun nut. I don't want to F*CK my weapon. I RESPECT my weapon, as I do ALL weapons.

So, when I continue to hear stupid Fox News sh*t regarding guns, and when I see things that imply KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN SHOULD BE EQUIPPED WITH GUNS, I want to, you know, go on a shooting spree.

uttertosh: FloydA: Biff_Steel: I thought it was rock and roll that drove kids to do this.

Jazz music and the marijuana.

My war-hero-grandfather freaked out when he heard I was learning jazz in music class. "That'll lead to no good" he told my father, who as a flower wearing 60's teenager, just laughed at.

Did you end up consorting with Negroes?  The jazz music will make you do that, you know.

"I was a psycho who got expelled from school for carrying a loaded, stolen handgun into class. Then I didn't learn my lesson and would carry around loaded sawed off shotguns. I got in lots of fights but never murdered anyone. My mom raised me to believe video games are evil, and so I do believe it, because that makes a lot of sense. Some people who did terrible things also played video games. I didn't ever murder anyone, only thought about it constantly and also thought about killing myself, so clearly video games cause murders."

I can't imagine why HuffPo wouldn't want this psychopath on their staff.

"I've never played video games and I didn't shoot up my school.  Therefore I have the expertise and authority to conclude that video games are the reason for school shootings."

No, honey.  You were probably absolutely gun-obsessed as a kid because you felt powerless in school for whatever various social and learning reasons.  Carrying around a gun probably made you feel like you had power, because in your head you could go, "You're making me feel like shiat, but I could end your life right now.  I could.  But I'm not.  You have no idea who has the power here right now.  I do."  And that made you feel better.

Video games wouldn't have changed that.  Actually, some video games might have helped you, by giving you a feeling of control, or being able to play the hero.  There's more to video games than just FPSes, and not all FPSes are created equal, anyway.

You also probably became a high school teacher for the power thing.  You're in there, in control of the classroom like you never could have been as a kid.  And that's just sad for so many reasons.

Wow ... it wasn't printed because it draws intensely stupid conclusions.

The author is comparing someone who didn't do a school shooting, himself, to people who did. It is apples to oranges. So any similarities or differences are irrelevant.

There are probably millions of kids over the years who went through exactly what he did without hurting anyone, just like his case, but also did play video games. He does not even consider them.

The fact that the majority of school shooters played video games directly correlates to the fact that the vast majority of school age kids play video games.
