"8-year-old shoots, kills elderly caregiver after video game" reads the CNN headline. Of course, that headline sells: It involves a child, a gun, killing, violence and a scandalous baseless accusation!
Before casually accepting the headline, let's take one step back, look again and re-think this tragedy.
An 8 year old child kills his elderly caregiver. He kills her with a loaded, unlocked, accessible gun while not properly supervised. Yet, the video game gets blamed, with no base for causality, and no mention of the inappropriately available loaded gun.
