When you sit back and think about it, April is a pretty terrible month for well-known tragedies. The world just finished commemorating the 100th year anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking on the 15th, President Lincoln was assassinated on the eve of the 15th as well, and the Oklahoma City Bombings happened 17 years ago on the 19th. The Virginia Tech Shootings also took place on a fateful April morning.
Today, Colorado also remembers one of their worst tragedies. One that arguably impacted our schooling and how we view bullying, gun control and teenage counter-culture. April 20th marks the 13th year anniversary since the Columbine School Shootings occurred. And now, with the trial of Anders Behring Breivik — the man allegedly responsible for the 2011 Norway Attacks — a common argument is starting to appear again very closely related to Columbine. That argument is — just how responsible are video games for the violence terrorists inflict upon others?
