    The educational system is moving towards, or is at the point of on line education. Is it really effective?

    If the answer is yes then what makes violent video games that teach not only how to kill but to kill on a large scale less of a teaching tool?

    Does responsible gun ownership teach how to kill? Does responsible gun ownership teach a lack of respect for life? Of course not.

    So the question should be what does teach those on the fringe of sanity to step over the line.

    I think violent video games is one vehicle.

    I think the right to life movement is another.

    I think taking out US citizens with predatory missile is another. (or anyone else)

    I think the glorification of the execution of OBL is yet another.

    I think that the way we wage war where civilians are just collateral damage is wrong.

    What we need do is investigate why this middle class white boy did what other middle class white boys have done. There are guns available to poor kids but we don't see them shooting up schools as did this insane idiot. So what makes people like this shooter go over the edge, and responsible gun ownership isn't it.

    Not sure what is your point. I have heard more about specific teachers then specific actions of the children.
