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

    Lately the media, especially the liberal media has been scapegoating video games as a possible factor in the Connecticut shooting. Do you believe that violence in video games and movies are an issue and they can cause things like the tragedy we have seen recently. 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.

    I don't think any MENTALLY NORMAL person will, simply by playing Call of Duty or Left 4 Dead or other violent video game, decide on that basis to go out and kill a bunch of innocent people at random.


    A mentally ABNORMAL person may become fixated on ANYTHING, and not have the ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy, right and wrong... in which case the video game is not the causal agent, the mental illness is the cause.

    Definitely, it desensitizes kids to violence.

    For those constantly exposed to violence, it becomes the norm.

    There is over 25 years of research and information from a variety of sources and no I am not going to list them all thats your job. to show that violent video games, tv shows or the like are a deciding factor or even a major one in such acts. If the child or person is NT (neurologically typical) then this holds. If they are mentally ill (NOT DD) or have some other neurological disorder which makes them prone to anger or violence who knows.

    Right now as far as I can see there is too much conflicting information to know for sure what was with this person.

    I constantly play very violent games and watch very violent movies and I'm fine and most people are. It's those who are mentally unstable that it affects. What do you believe should be done about it?

    These games will only affect mentally challenged people who are adversely affected by this sort of stimuli. I know a lot og fuys that play the most violent games, including myself, and none of us are violent people nor people that would do or condone this sort of action.

    The issue is NOT video games nor guns.

    The issue IS crazy people.

    i think mental illness and the supply of affordable treatment is the issue.

    Some people think that because a TINY TINY fraction of humanity abuses X, or reacts badly to X, that X must be banned.


    I am not one of those people.
