The Top Ten
@AggressiveBlaze: You are correct about this being nowhere near as tragic as 9/11. The only reason why I put this so high on the list is because out of the 26 people killed, 20 of them were children under 11 (they were ages 6-7). In all the other massacres and terrorist attacks (except 9/11, where both children and adults were killed) I listed,all (or nearly all) the people killed were adults. I do not mean to sound offensive, but I think the most tragic deaths are the deaths of children ages 10 and younger (I don't know why though). I do not think that Call of Duty contributed to the Sandy Hook shooting, but I can see why your mom will not let you play it. - anonygirl
