    Firearms - The Primary Problem

    Is it the weapon or the person pulling the trigger?

    Person pulling the trigger...until a gun is taught how to fire all by itself.

    What is the "problem" ? Did the weapon jam ? Was the round a dud ?

    I think you need to be more specific about this alleged "problem".

    That's why there should be a major study conducted on the effects of video games on the youngest generation to determine if there is a cause and effect on young people committing random acts of violence.

    The 8 year old who killed his dad and the dad's friend seemed well adjusted to killing. Not just shooting, as his dad may have taught him, but killing.

    That may have come from an over exposure to violent games. Just as not everyone who drinks is an alcoholic, not every kid who plays "Grand Theft Auto" is going to go on a shooting rampage.

    But some may.

    We need to KNOW THE TRUTH about the effects of video games and acts of violence in this country.

    Improper headpace. Could be any number of causes.

    Re: Firearms - The Primary Problem

    I would say both since each without the other is ineffective.

    Incorrect.
    Someone that wants to kill someone else, especially in cold blood, will always find a way.

    Well most of the time when you miss, its usually operator error. But sometimes the weapon can be the problem, with a warped barrel and such.
