So, do you advocate banning video games
No, but I’d favor a law establishing tort liability for their producers. The makers of other potentially dangerous products are subject to being sued for damages if their products result in harm. The rich conscience-free folks who produce these blood-spattered games shouldn’t be exempt from product liability litigation.
Just as absurd as holding car manufacturers liable for the results of drunk drivers.
Do you play any of these games? I’m asking because I do and I cannot make the connection that you do between these games and the actions of demented individuals who just so happen to play them and then go out and commit an atrocity. I see no cause and effect.
Following your line of reasoning, why not hold motion picture makers liable as well? In fact, I would emphasize that the fictional entertainment coming out of Hollywood is much more influential on the psyche of murderers than a video game.
