That's right, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has said violent video games are partially to blame for the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

NRA vice president Wayne LaPierre condemned "vicious, violent video games like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse", and said VG's in general are a "shadow Industry" that "sows violence against its own people".

"There exists in this country a callous, corrupt, and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people," NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre said. "Through vicious, violent video games with names like Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat, and Splatterhouse. And here's one: it's called Kindergarten Killers. It's been online for 10 years. How come my research department could find it and all of yours either couldn't or didn't want anyone to know you had found it?"

However, he also pointed the finger at the film and music industries...

"Then there's the blood-soaked slasher films like American Psycho and Natural Born Killers that are aired like propaganda loops on Splatterdays and every day, and a thousand music videos that portray life as a joke and murder as a way of life. And then they have the nerve to call it entertainment. But is that what it really is? Isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?"

LaPierre argued that media conglomerates, like the ones responsible for the games, music, and films listed above, are caught up in a "race to the bottom," and in fact compete with each other to "shock, violate, and offend every standard of civilized society."

There you have it. You can read the full text on NRA's site.
