    I'm curious as to how you guys made a choice. Did you vote on it as a Canadian referendum?

    It's just Canadian politics. A quote from the mayor of London, Ontario: "We shall crush you!" when referring to gang bangers.

    Here's the thing, if something as benign as a video game can cause people like Lanza to snap, then anything could. If we make an effort to remove the stimuli that cause INSANE people to act INSANE then a whole purge of our entire culture would have to take place. Let's be honest: at a certain point maniacs do what they do because they are maniacs, not because of anything that doesn't affect normal people.

So a person using a gun to kill someone means the person killed people, not the guns. But a person played GTA and kills people, OMG GTA IS RUINING OUR YOUTHS MINDS! (lets not bother with the question of why the parents are letting their child who can't handle the reality of the situation play GTA. That'd be too difficult plus that parent may be pro-2nd amendment, and we can't criticize our own side!)
    If you are addressing that to me, you might look a little further back and see that I have not suggested violent video games cause people to kill. I agree that anyone that looks to shirk personal responsibility is missing the boat.

    So you are changing you stance from guns cause it to video games and movies cause it? Or are you say now that both do?

    Why are people constantly exposed to violence? For that matter, are people constantly exposed to violence? Is it you stance that all violence is bad/evil?
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

Rural America (in most cases) is actually pretty safe.
    Problem beng that the crimes of the cities are part of the nation.

    Of course they are. However, perhaps we should be focusing on curtailing poverty and killing the thug culture, both of which lead to gang violence and murders. We need to clean up our country, and removing guns simply isn't the way to do it. (I know that's not what you're suggesting.)

    Yep, not going to happen. It's far too easy to blame guns.

    This is exactly the point that these complainers either ignore for some agenda or are too stupid to understand. There were insane people prior to video games and there will insane people if we ban them.
