Re "What is proper response to gun massacres?" (Head to Head, Dec. 20): No video game has ever rewarded players for "raping a human being." The media seems very keen on finding some sort of "cause" of terrible acts of violence like the school shooting.
I'll let you guys in on a secret: Violence happens because people are violent, terrible creatures. Unless you can change human nature, no amount of banning guns or violent video games will change this. If there is any "cause" to these massacres it is an irresponsible media that makes shooters live in infamy after every massacre.
