    Re: Do You Think That Violent Video Games/ Movies Are An Issue

    As others have stated previously, video games could rarely be pinpointed as a direct catalyst for violence, but I have observed a disturbing lack of empathy and lessened sense of societal awareness exhibited by personal acquaintances and extended family members who are completely absorbed (obsessed) with video game culture. Moderation in all facets could serve society well.

    I've given you the list of guns. Do you think the ban should go further than the guns proposed?
