NRA makes another stupid comment

Yes, I know that this story is old, but it is one that has to be mentioned. The NRA is always looking for an excuse to make people believe that they are not to blame for the insane gun laws and availability of weapons in the US. Yes, its video games, according to them. I wish that the President and some of the families of the victims could go on a campaign to limit assault rifles and put in stricter gun purchasing laws and get rid of some guns all together. How many more people have to die?

People have tried to blame video games for many social ills of American society for years. Now I know that the US isn't the only country that plays video games, so why don't we have mass shootings in Japan, UK, France, Germany, Brazil, Middle east? Oh yeah, that's right, you can't buy guns in those countries. The most that the video game industry can be responsible for is Chinese or Korean gamers passing out in internet cafes from playing Warcraft non stop for days on end.
