I’m wondering if the kid has a history of negative behavior? Is this something that has been overlooked or ignored? Has he had any reprimands or punishments recently? 9 year olds don’t necessarily have a good grip on reality and/or consequences, but if he has any history of violence, that might go a long way as to explaining how he got to this point in the first place.

I’m sure the story will stop short of any info found upon further investigation.

Guns should be put in a place where children can not gain access. The owner of the gun should bear the brunt of the consequences. Your gun, your responsibility.

Not everyone that plays video games are going to go out and kill someone, just like not everyone with a gun is going to go out and kill someone.

The common denominator is not guns nor video games, it is the person.

In this case it is a nine year old child that has some serious anger management issues, but that is the new societal direction for children. Previously every other kid was being labelled ADD and being placed on Ritalin. Now we have children with anger management issue and reactive disorders.

Indeed we have a big problem in our society and it is time we stop looking for labels and excuses. Maybe the answer is not in strict regulation and licensing of guns, but strict regulation and licensing of people who think they want to have children.

I guess that was just a bit of a rant.

Sorry.

You're onto something here! Now here's some regulation I could actually get behind.

Driving a car is one hell of a lot less responsibility than raising a kid, but a license is required to drive a car. Why not raise a kid?

I totally understand and agree. The real question is, what was this kid like? How was his behavior? What patterns can be pulled from this to prevent the next one?

What a damn shame that we have so many loons in this country, it's almost as if we don't deserve gun rights.

And frankly, this is what the media should be focused on too...IF they truly wanted to see something change, but they don't want that. They want gore, and lots of it. They want controversy, and lots of it. Gore and controversy sell advertisements, because it's what people watch, it's what they want. So what do they talk about? They talk about "death" and "guns", not mental health and parenting.

It's sickening! Just sickening!

Desensitized to violence - It amazes me people say violent games and movies don't effect people thinking .

Seeing one dead body can be a shock seeing one every day becomes the norm every thing we show kids to solve things is Violent .

I cant believe people say having guns around isn't a problem .The gun does not shoot people is the weakest thing they can say . It does not matter if the gun cant do it without a person FACT is there are people who have Easy access to guns Fact is a person will think twice about killing someone IF it is a Knife as that is up close and personal .

Fact is TIME and TIME again YOU have proven you CAN NOT handle the responsibility of a GUN .
You ?? who is that you I am talking about ? THE HUMAN race . 100000s of 1000s killed every year with guns most of the time with each side cheering and saying KILL MORE .

Humans are savage and Incapable of using the intelligence they have and fall back on instincts time and time again Instincts that say kill or be killed and have no place in what could be a civilization . Not that Humans every had one .

Look up what it means .

Playing violent games wont make you violent . But if you become violent you sure have learned how easy it is to kill someone .You sure have learned HOW to use a Gun to kill someone . What you HAVE NOT learned from the games or movies is the consequence of what happens after you kill some one .

And you have learned the most important thing from games and movies Blood dead body's are No big deal .
You have also learned from movies from How the Governments deal with problems the answer is always The same KILL more people .

Maybe the next species who evolve intelligence will acutely be intelligent .
Now lets go back to cheering for NK to be nuked .Alest for this week tune in next week to see what the next exciting country we can kill more people in .
But hey remember the guns did not kill them .

How ironic (tragic, but still ironic)...

9 year old gets pissed because his 13 year old sister won't let him play the latest version of Murder Slaughter Bloodbath Death Gore Porn - ver. 37.3...so he grabs a real gun and blows her brains out for real!

Nah, couldn't have been violent video games that inspired this kid to pick up a gun (which is absolutely incapable of firing by itself, btw) and murder someone, now could it??? Nawwwwww!

THEN...BBC picks it up and runs with the story. Nary a mention of the whole violent video game piece.

Guns are NOT the problem, the problem IS the person who pulls the trigger!

How long is it going to take for people to get this?????????



OMG, I played GTA as a kid, should I be concerned that I may become a killer and shoot one of my sisters?

Oh wait, guns are not easy to get in my country.




Are you glad they are not easy to get?

Do you have control issues?

The United States has a population of 325 million.
I don't think are as many loons as you think there are.
Most of that 325 million are peaceful individuals that do not shoot people.

When I was a kid there were firearms all over our house...UNSECURED. I never felt the need to use a firearm to end someone's life...NEVER! No matter how bad things got, no matter what kind of a fight I got into, I never considered using a firearm to shoot someone!

Where does the blame lay again???





Parenting. Obviously you had better parents. But to keep guns unsecured in todays element is begging for disaster.

Or am I wrong? Please tell me that over 300 million people all raised like you are good around unsecured firearms.




When I was young, no prob. We had guns, me, mom, dad, bro each our own.

Now? Meh, don't f'k with me just to be sure.

Ahh, cool. And would be great news if everyone was a carbon copy of you with the same exact upbringing.

But alas, people are different. The parents are most likely to blame here for first off not addressing this kids anger disorders, along with not securing their firearms properly.

Trying to figure out if you are attempting to blame video games.

Completely agree it's the parents fault. But how can people be so irresponsible? Doesn't it hark back to the original idea that some people are just reckless with weapons? I feel it does.

No cases of a kid getting angry at his sister hogging the controller and violently stabbing her to death. These are two completely different scenarios.

One is the ease of access to a weapon, and a kid with poor anger managing skills finding his parents gun and using it.
The other is a premeditated crime, intent on using whatever means possible.

My point is, if the gun had been secured, he may have just thrown something and had a tantrum. Instead the weapon was easily accessible and he used it.

Two entirely different end results.


The kid is a sick f'k to shoot his sister. Let alone pick up a firearm in anger.

He could have stabbed her to death.

Crushed her skull.

RIP dead pixels.
also, games have age ratings. children aren't allowed access to the truly violent stuff. bad parenting however will allow for that, same with rated R movies, porn, etc. Eventually parents gotta step up and parent..or at least secure their effin gun

The problem being presented here is a supervision problem moreso than a tool problem. Granted, a gun is far worse for a 9 year old to grab than say, a knife or whatever is around and turns a injury into a funeral, but the problem ultimately is the kid and the issues going on within that family and its inability to watch their kids.

Ban guns? hmm...naa...might as well ban unauthorized breeding until the potential parent can prove they will raise their kids to some degree of responsibility.

If you can't tell the difference between a movie/game and reality you might be right. But than you probably have more issues in your every day life than just being able to handle the sight of dead bodies.

If I can use a controller

I can use a gun?

Bad argument is bad. just keeping it real here
getting stabbed or beaten with a bat rarely results in fatality. guns usually do.

As the saying goes, don't bring a knife to a gunfight

If viewing violence does not do anything to the childs brain then why are games and movies age rated?
