My mother wants to go through all her grandkids' toys to get rid of any realistic looking toy weapons (we don't have any) and doesn't want my kid playing army games (he's 12 so I don't let him) or watch me play violent games (er...okay he's seen me play Gears of War...). Yeah this shooting and all the coverage has sent her over the edge.

Needlers in the home is the number one cause of loss of security deposit.

I agree. Parents should be involved. Halo is a little too sci fi to really be a threat, but yeah keep an eye on your kids, and maybe keep the violent realism games away from them till they're mature enough to handle it. But it did give off a "video games make you want to kill people" vibe.
