Yeah, I agree. The game being played is certainly relevant, due to the amount of violence in it, and how it affects developing children, but obviously the highly available gun should be highlighted just a wee bit more.So they are going to focus on the video game for blame but not the completely accessable, loaded gun?????
So you never played cowboys and Indians? Little boys think everything is a gun and pretend to shoot everything. It's the parents damn job to tell kids what is real, not real. Right from wrong. Make believe and reality.A lot of things wrong with that. The game in the hands of an 8 year old, and the gun being so accessible.
My nephew was (and still is) allowed to play COD, GTA, etc. and he's always talking about shooting things, pretending everything's a gun, etc. Now, I'm hardly parent of the year, but it just makes me cringe seeing someone raised like that.

At 8 you should have a fairly good idea of what you are doing.
Good. Charge the parents.The child is being looked after by his parents. The authorities are treating the shooting as a "homicide".
The boy cannot be charged with a crime because of his age, the sheriff's office said.
Louisiana law states: "Those who have not reached the age of 10 years are exempt from criminal responsibility."
A six year old knows what it means to die. I don't know that the concept of killing someone and the ramifications of that is really something they'd normally think about though.definitely, they are 100% responsible. What's the age where kids "get" what it means to die? I'm assuming this kid is old enough to know?
Yeah, but that shit happens 8 times a day, and doesn't make headlines. The video game angle? NOW THAT'S SOME NEWS!!!!11Wirelessly posted dio
This. That's way worse than the violent video game.
