    Perhaps because the reality of that folly is still in recent memory. The banning of anything in high demand creates an immediate criminally controlled market to maintain the supply. Many banned things are in greater supply now that before they were banned, e.g. cocaine and heroin.

    I'm in my early 30s. Every guy I know plays some kind of video game that has violence in it. Many of these guys are hardcore, anti-war, anti- death penalty liberals. It is just something the younger generations do to pass the time.

    You don't seem so up in arms about the 40,000 deaths related to alcohol though.
    Seems like you're "shooting" to ban the wrong things.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Add it to the list. I don't drink, it will be no hardship on me!

    Sounds about right, they've been blaming music, video games, and tv for forever and a week now. Anything to shirk responsibility and avoid the root of the problem.

    Please explain your opinion.
    My answer is obviously no. If video games and movies were an actual problem, or even a factor in the violence, there would be millions of these occurrences every day.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
