> There are games that literally replicate and give people the ability to score points for doing the very same thing that these students are doing inside of schools, where you get extra points for finishing someone off who’s lying there begging for their life

Rather difficult to amass those high bodycounts without the gun though, isn't it?

Kids in the UK also play those games, and yet we don't seem to have the equivalent happening.

And that's being generous and accepting the hypothesis that games are anything to do with this. Couldn't possibly be just that an angry, misguided and disenfranchised teen had access to an AR-15 and chose to take that anger out on those he felt had wronged him
