Last Wednesday, 25 year old Kimveer Gill went on a rampage at Dawson College in Montreal. Thursday night, 2 of the people he shot were announced dead, while 6 were left in critical condition. After the shooting occurred, Kimveer Gill shot himself to death during a standoff with authorities. Once again, the media has blamed video games for the inspiration of a shooting.
On ABC World News, Charles Gibson has stated the following about the Montréal shooting: “We learn today that the gunman was obsessed with extremely violent videogames.” Another ABC reporter stated “Studies continue to link violent, sexually-charged games like Grand Theft Auto with increased aggression. But the gaming industry has used the First Amendment to win most legal fights.” ABC news also stated how certain games such as Postal 2: Share the Pain and JFK: Reloaded can be downloaded, avoiding retail.
You can view an interview with the creator of Super Columbine Massacre RPG! (Which was said to be a favorite game of Gill) here.
