A 16-year-old boy was arrested following an apparent joke made in poor taste about carrying out a school shooting, and has been banned from playing violent video games.
GamesIndustry.biz reports that the teenager posted a video of himself playing a violent video game on SnapChat with the caption, "Y’all need to shut up about school shootings or I’ll do one."
The young man was supposedly "annoyed" by social media conversations that took place in the wake of threats to his own school, Roselle's Lake Park High School, that resulted in the school closing its two campuses as a safety precaution. The social media threat was later deemed not to be credible.

Yeah, No clue how we ended up reverting back to already widely debunked ideas on gaming and such outlets....
...its not like there was a vocal group of jackasses who have been screaming about the "toxic" gamers for years now with msm cheering on their efforts....

There is Violence in games, there is violence in movies, there is violence in books and there violence in life.
The world isn't all sun shine are rainbows our arts and media reflect that.
