Novia says that Adam was playing "violent video games" at the time -- World of Warcraft, in particular -- and implies a link between the games and the subsequent massacre.
then it goes on -
The Courant reporters say they learned from unidentified investigators that Adam carried out the shootings at Sandy Hook consistent with the way you play video games: changing his ammunition magazines frequently, even when they were not yet empty.
I wish someone from Frontline would spend a day with a Guild Master, or was with me for the 2.5 days I spent farming Fel iron and related ores in Outland to raise my blacksmithing and mining.
Oh yes there was violence, mostly by my NPC pets against other NPC's, or any NPC that was distracting me from a node. No blood, no lost limbs, no head shots, just a 70+ pet going after NPC's allowing me to eventually mine cobalt and maintain professions at level and get out of the Godforsaken Outland.
People should play the various games before jumping to conclusions.
I hope Frontline releases Adam's various toon handles and realms. -- Congress could mess up a one piece jigsaw puzzle.
What I find interesting is that fact that WOW doesn't have magazines, clips, rounds, arrows in it. At one time it did [damn you blizzard for taking a money maker away from my engineer. But thank you for freeing up a bag slot/storage space in bags.]. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
The quivers and ammunitions bags weren't quite magazines. Reloading a magazine wasn't necessary, just not running out of ammunition.
I recall the quiver, and having to get good with a weapon type. I can't recall when those were remove (what year, month).
Even with an ammunition pouch, a hunter wouldn't provide practice for Adam Lanza, at least not the type of violent learning many FPS video console games could offer. -- Congress could mess up a one piece jigsaw puzzle.
In my opinion, PBS has the victims' blood from the next mass-murder incident on their hands for glorifying the killer and making him a household name. -- Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

You can't draw cause and effect when you have no control over the experiment. There are too many variables to say that one thing in a person's life equals something else. That's like saying he ate Tinkies (tm) and that made him do it.
I guess that's my problem, I'm too rational. -- Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something. ¯ Robert A. Heinlein
easy now... I love most forms of music. The great thing about Country music... is that it is one of the last genres of music that is unafraid to be unabashedly patriotic (despite its detractors... I'm looking at you (now-irrelevant) dixie chicks). -- Intelligence is no substitute for Character.
They are now saying Lanza was obsessed with mass murderers. That he wanted to "out do" the mass murderer in Norway. The guy that killed 77 people at a school. Though the local PD [sandy hook] is saying that is mere speculation.
IMO, maybe shit like this doesn't need to be fed on the national news. Because maybe by nationalizing it, they are only encouraging others to attempt to out do the last mass murderer.
I think we can drop it now. complaining about gossipers in the office is fine... until our complaining becomes no better than the gossip we are complaining about. -- Intelligence is no substitute for Character.
