Minecraft blamed for school violence case

This time on Video Game Violence stupidity

Quote:
The unnamed student had "an unloaded handgun, a magazine with six bullets inside, a steak knife and a small-handled sledge hammer," reports WFTV-TV of Orlando. The firearm came from his father's home.

"The boy's father said he was playing a character he learned from the video game Minecraft," WFTV reports.

"They use hammers to dig and knives and guns to protect themselves from zombies," he said, according to the station.

WFTV reported that his father said "he was just acting out the game" and that the gun could never be fired, because it's firing pin had been removed. Still, the kid knew where to find it, and knew where to find the ammo, which ain't good.

But while Minecraft is not exactly a nonviolent game, in no way does it rise to the level of violence in typical scapegoats like Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. Minecraft is rated E10+ by the ESRB. Hearing that game—which is being taught in first grade, for God's sake—linked to a garden variety guns-n-schools freakout story is just nauseating.

Yup, another video game violence thing, not because of GTA, not CoD, but Minecraft. ****ing Minecraft

Something something something video games doesn't cause violence.

Something something bad parenting.

Can't wait to hear this story told differently next month.

Nope. There also aren't any hammers, let alone hammers that let you dig, nor are there knives.

However all of the above weapons/tools are in Terraria, a 2D game similar to Minecraft.
