    I personally think it would be incredibly hard to kill anyone with my copy of Halo 4.

    On a side note, Canada seems to have access to the same violent movies and videogames that we do. I'm sure they must be struggling with crazies shooting up schools as well.

    Lets study cars/transpiration while we're at it. People die all the time in transportation related accidents.

    I'm sure the 62 year old that set a fire and shot and killed 2 firefighters and his sister was dropping n-bombs on Call of Duty on Xbox Live shortly before he went ape shit.

    It's clear to me in my daily work that at the least (and probably at the most) certain games can lead to a desensitization to violence--as does mass media.

    Wait. I just heard the details. Adam Lanza played STARCRAFT?! And that's why these idiots want to investigate videogames. Give me a ****ing break.
