After the Sandy Hook school massacre last year, Antwand Pearman of GamerFitNation organized a "cease fire" day during which gamers avoided first-person shooters and other violent games. Today is the second Cease-Fire, a statement against gun violence and supporting victims of it. The Cease-Fire lasts to midnight.

"It's an opportunity for gamers to show that the gun violence for which the media frequently criticizes video games does not control them, and to symbolically pay their respects to victims of gun-related tragedies," Pearman writes.
