Poll Results: The Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Report

December 2, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

In last week's poll we asked you if the results of an investigation into the Dec. 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting would change anyone's minds about gaming's correlation to Adam Lanza's shooting spree that saw six adults and 20 children shot almost a year ago. The majority of those who voted in the poll didn't think the findings of the report would change the minds of those who believe that video games held a strong influence on Adam Lanza and his actions.

Of the 262 votes casts, 79 percent (208 votes) indicated that those who believe games were a contributing factor in the crime will not change their minds no matter what. Ten percent of the vote (25 votes) believe that the report will put the idea that video games were somehow an influence to rest, and 11 percent (29 votes) thought it might change the minds of a few people.

Thanks to everyone who participated in last week's poll. Look for a new one later this week. For a more in-depth discussion on the topic and the details of the report, check out the latest episode of Super Podcast Action Committee.
