Vic began this edition of Crosstalk by noting an interesting contrast related to the story that 26 lives were taken in a Connecticut elementary school shooting today. He recalled a recent incident where a school suspended a child for having a piece of pizza shaped like a gun, while on the other hand, many parents see nothing wrong with X-Box killing games or paint-ball.
