    Kid Brings Weapons to School Because of Minecraft

    A nine-year-old Orlando, Fla. boy—"so tiny ... he could barely see the judge over the podium"—was sentenced to home confinement by a state judge after he brought "multiple weapons to school." The video game being blamed? Minecraft. Mine-bleeping-craft.

    The unnamed student had "an unloaded handgun, a magazine with six bullets inside, a steak knife and a small-handled sledge hammer," reports WFTV-TV of Orlando. The firearm came from his father's home.

    "The boy's father said he was playing a character he learned from the video game Minecraft," WFTV reports.

    "They use hammers to dig and knives and guns to protect themselves from zombies," he said, according to the station.123

    WFTV reported that his father said "he was just acting out the game" and that the gun could never be fired, because it's firing pin had been removed. Still, the kid knew where to find it, and knew where to find the ammo, which ain't good.

    But while Minecraft is not exactly a nonviolent game, in no way does it rise to the level of violence in typical scapegoats like Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. Minecraft is rated E10+ by the ESRB. Hearing that game—which is being taught in first grade, for God's sake—linked to a garden variety guns-n-schools freakout story is just nauseating.

    I don't know how I feel about this.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Minecraft doesn't have guns.

    They dig using pickaxes, and they use bows and swords to protect themselves.

    Get it right.

    The amount of stupidity of that 9 year old boy is too damn high.

    Also his father.

    Minecraft doesn't even have guns, unless he added mods.

    But still, how does a 10 year old know how to add mods to mc?

    The dad was a stupid prick.

    If he had guns in the house, he needed to educate his kid about them, and he shouldn't be trying to blame video games when then kid doesn't know what a firearm is capable of. It's his fault.

    Lel spades are bow hammers. Swords are knifes. Guns are bows. And why don't that kid go punch a tree?
