Coorelation does not equal causation. Millions of people buy "violent" video games every year but there's only a couple shootings every year where the link between video games and the shooters' actions are never linked; the only link is that the shooter had once played CoD or GTA.

Talk about preaching to the choir...

Nothing bad about that, I suppose, but there's got to be some place to let the word out outside from videogaming communities.

all this talk about gun violence.. and etc..

 

sparked my interests..

 

never own  a gun..but now.. i want to buy  some...

 

a handgun and an assault rifle...  maybe a shotgun for a more personal contact..

 

any recommendation?

 

the state i live in there's no gun law.. you can register  and wait 3 days then you can own 1..  no class or permit needed..

None of these mass shootings were blammed because of violent video games.

Some of these mass shootings, I don't believe. I just have my reasons. If anything, blame the media. Its nothing but garbage these days and watching it gets very depressing. Just about lies and preception.

They always report the bad, very rare they ever report the good. The only thing I watch is Sports and weahter. Occasionally I will watch the news but CLICK!

Violent video games, could never be the cause of mass shootings no matter how unedcucated your parents are or how you were brought up.

Violent video games will always be around us.

Penn & Teller on videogames and reality connection. ( Because I'm too lazy to put any thought in my post and I agree with the points shown in P&T show. )

EDIT: Removed the vid, but you can find it on youtube.

The killer can watch violent movies all day and it's fine, the killer can be an alcohol addict and its fine, the user can be addicted to drugs and be high all day and its fine, he can be depressed and it's fine.

But when he PLAYS VIDEO GAMES it can be blamed on that only and the other reasons can be forgotten.

News papers make me so sick with stories like that. Depression and drugs addiction are far more often the cause when the killer played video games along with one of the other reasons listed.

Retro City Rampage by VBlank Entertainment (PS3/PSV) said it best.

Blaming something or someone else is just a natural instinct for those that want to avoid responsibility.

So, what's the difference between saying, "The gun or video-game made him do it!" and "There is some link / correlation between gun ownership/ video games and violence" ? There is no difference, one just sounds foolish but they both mean the same thing.
