The mainstream media is eager to have another one-sided discussion about gun control in the wake of Monday’s Navy Yard shooting.
One fact quickly emerged from the biography of the man who killed 13 people in Washington, D.C., and it’s likely to stoke a renewed conversation about how much entertainment factors into mass shootings.
The Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis played violent video games including Call of Duty for up to 16 hours at a time and friends believe it could have pushed him towards becoming a mass murderer.
The role action-packed video games like Call of Duty play in violent crimes surfaces in the early hours of most shooting episodes.
This time, the person who apparently did the shooting has a clear record of embracing these games.
