Minecraft Blamed For School Violence Case

We’ve all seen the stories claiming violence is being caused by such games as Grand Theft Auto v and Call of Duty but now the seemingly innocent Minecraft is being blamed.

A nine-year old boy took multiple weapons into his Florida school. The boy held:

“…an unloaded handgun, a magazine with six bullets inside, a steak knife and a small-handled sledge hammer” According to reports from WFTV-TV.

“The boy’s father said he was playing a character he learned from the video game Minecraft,”

“They use hammers to dig and knives and guns to protect themselves from zombie… he was just acting out the game.”

The firearm came from his fathers’ house, but apparently had the firing pin removed.

The unnamed boy has been sentenced to home confinement for his actions.
