Steinhauser ran amok in his former school firing 40 rounds from a pistol in a 20-minute frenzy. He was also carrying a legally owned pump-action shotgun, but did not use it. According to Der Spiegel news magazine, Steinhauser spent much of his time playing violent computer video games. His favourite was called "Counterstrike" in which anti-terror units wearing masks battle each other to death. Steinhaeuser also wore a black mask and dark clothes to carry out his attack. Well of course once again computer games are blamed, ,perhaps his class were cheaters. Steinhauser was old enough to realise that there is a serious difference between computer games and reality, if you can't then you shouldn't play them, and should prob. sit in an institute. First it was horror films, then computer games ..now it's THE computer game.
