Sandy Hook Elementary School students returned to the classroom Thursday at a school in a nearby town. Twenty students and six adults were slaughtered last month in a gun rampage at the school in the town of Newtown, Conn.

Now there’s an effort underway in Southington, Conn. to address what some believe may be at the root of the massacre: Violent video games.

A group called Southington S.O.S., originally formed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, is now responding to the Sandy Hook tragedy with, not a gun buyback, but a violent video game buyback.

In return, those giving away their violent video games will get a gift certificate that might bring the family together.
