Adam Lanza "played 'Call of Duty' in windowless bunker for hours"

Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza spent hours in his dark basement quarters playing Call of Duty and other violent video games that feature weapons like the ones he used in the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre.

This is according plumber Peter Wlasuk, who spoke to the Sun about his visits to the posh Newtown home Adam shared with his mom, Nancy, and sometimes his older brother, Ryan.

Wlasuk said Ryan occupied the basement before moving out, when Adam took over the military-themed lair:

"The boys were fans of the military. They had posters all over the wall in the basement. They had one poster of every piece of military equipment the US ever made. It was a huge poster with every tank every made. The kids could tell you about guns they had never seen from the 40s, 50s and 60s. The kids who play these games know all about them. I’m not blaming the games for what happened. But they see a picture of a historical gun and say ‘I’ve used that on Call Of Duty’."

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

I never got into the video games.

They frustrate me too much when I miss or am not quick enough and therefore I lose attention and do something else.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

"i was playing sonic the hedgehog,do i now have an urge to go

Maybe that game led you to precious metal collecting instead? lol

Why does the mainstream media

Why does the mainstream media virtually never blame prescription drugs? Turn on the tv sometime and you can tell who pays their bills by the commercials. Most of them are prescription drug companies.

That's what I want to know.

They will only go as far as mentioning mental illness and then say how they need to be medicated! I think Pfizer, Merck and Eli Lily have a big thing to do with their advertisers.

Both played and yet Ryan shot no one.

Ryan was also not on psychotropic medications.
And I am really sick of seeing autistic people demonized by this, that is just a cheap shot.
I agree that the video games desensitize people, but the LABEL on the drugs says they can make people "psychotic." Why do people insist on blaming video games (or guns) when we have a confession on the drug?

Drugs!?

Don't you find it interesting that the drugs we are referring to are not "controlled" drugs. Narcotics(sleepy time meds)would seldom have this effect on people. Yet, the present medical establishment makes pain patients suffer because of antiquated views on the proper use of narcotics. They think that we need to use the "new meds"! You know, Cymbalta, Lyrica, etc. the drugs that "help pain", but, honestly, can produce terrible side effects, even death.

Medicine is a mess and will get worse. I don't think doctors are going to have much influence on their own patients, since the physician/patient relationship is no longer the most important basis for treating patients!

A former prescriber!

Thanks for weighing in.

I don't know how far down this line of thinking you have gone, but consider this: If you could grow a few poppies, a coca bush and some marijuana, how much healing could you do?

THIS BEARS REPEATING OVER AND OVER!!!!

He should never have had to say that.

There's more than one reason why they call it
