its easy to see a link. he obviously had serious mental issues, giving someone like this access to guns will always lead to a disaster.
i think the ppl above (and most readers) here will just dismiss it because they don't feel the urge to shot a ton of kids or steal cars cos they played GTA.. but just step back and consider someone with a mental illness and suffers some sort of relapse or something.. coupled that with access to assault rifles...
yes, parents can be to blame. the US gun laws are to blame. but media (games/movies) can also have an influential impact.
the answer isnt to ban video games, but parents need educating allowing kids to play video games (i think technically he was an adult) which are considered violent.

Clearly not everbody who plays Call of duty will go around killing people.
But surely it is conceivable that if somebody has psychological issues, then playing Call of Duty or any other violent computer games could possbily add fuel to an unstable mind, even it is a tiny amount.
