Are Video Games at Fault in Virginia Tech Shootings? Rush Says No.

Rush LimbaughNow, I know it’s at least unusual for someone on a gaming site to praise Rush Limbaugh, but I have to. In the wake of the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech University, every gamer knew that someone would play the ‘video game card.’ Sure enough, Jack Thompson was calling every news outlet to spout his lunacy that video games were behind it all. But games were defended by none other than Rush Limbaugh. In fact, he even said what a lot of us think, when he said, “Not every video gamer goes out and murders 33 people on the college campus though. There’s more to this than thatâ$¦ it may desensitize people, but it doesn’t turn everybody into mass murderers.” It’s high time that everyone got this message, especially lawmakers. You can check out more of the transcript here. It’s worth a read.
