Germany doesn't blame video games after recent school shooting.

It must be a chilly day in hell, and nobody could be more surprised then I am, but motherland seems to finally have wrapped its head around the conclusions that video games =/= Satan.

In the wake of the recent school shooting in Winnenden, there have been renewed attacks on video games and gun control; magazines such as the "Stern" have claimed that the killer played Far Cry 2 on the night before his murders, and several political parties and other groups have jumped on the bandwagon pulled by a dead horse. However, in a refreshing display of common sense, family minister Ursula von der Leyen said that blaming video games would be nothing but a cop-out, and that changes to society such as teaching children morals and harder gun control would be the steps.

Finally.
