    Banning high capacity magazines and the guns that use them;
    The guns that use them have no clue how many rounds the inserted magazine contains. That sounds like the AWB already tried that did nothing to stop/slow gun crime.

    Requiring a waiting period for new gun purchases in all states, including at gun shows;
    Waiting for what? FFL dealers already use NICS background checks and they are virtually instant, at most done in minutes.

    Extending the background check to mental history;
    What do you think that should include? If not certified as criminally insane, or mentally disabled then what would ever show up and where?

    Those are the best proposals I've heard. What are other suggestions?
    It would be very, very expensive but - how about enforcing the existing laws, as written, by actually trying those arrested on the real charges (instead of plea dealing). Impose the appropriate real sentences and that just might act as a deterrent or at least would help keep the criminal 3% out of circulation for much, much longer for each conviction.

If you do believe they are an issue what do you think should be done? I personally believe that video games/movies cannot cause violence and blaming them is just a stupid reaction to a horrible tragedy. Video games and movies should not be censored or have enforced ratings like minors can't buy M rated video games. Please explain your opinion.

    If violent video games and movies where an issue then there would millions of mass shootings.So the answer to the poll question is no.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The same things we've been doing.
    Violent crime has been going down for decades.

    Just stay the course, rather than concoct useless bans on video games, movies and guns.
    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.

    Come up with better solutions then for reducing violence in this country.

    So because nothing else is being proposed we must have better ratings for video games? That won't solve anything.

    This might be a possibility, for a child raised in a relative absence of any moral guidance... but then again there's a lot of kids like that, and 99.999% of them never go shoot random strangers.

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

    Almost every young male who isn't homeless plays violent video games. There is an aggressive aspect to it to be sure, but for the vast majority this isn't a problem. And yes, someone who is mentally ill may react to these games differently, but the same can be said for Taxi Driver. The problem, once again, is the person's mental illness.
