And other killers (maybe him too?) no doubt watched a lot of movies, watched a lot of porn, watched a lot of sports, watched a lot of news/politics...

You can’t make a case for cause and effect based on that.

But really the point is that a nutcase can start killing because of song lyrics, books, his neighbour’s dog or any other insane reason. We can’t put the blame on whatever hobby/interests the killers have and start trying to adjust society to fit crazy people.

If you want to blame anything medication seems a more likely culprit. Asperger’s doesn’t need medicine.

We can allow tort liability, and let the facts of individual cases sort themselves out in court. If a product has a possibility of causing great harm, even in a small number of circumstances, the producers can be liable for the harm caused. That’s not the same thing as banning it.
