I disagree with you.. there is a lot of documentation on violent video games... but you can disagree. My point is, why is it always guns? After these horrible crimes are committed the police search the home of the perpetrators and always find these things: violent video games, psyc medication and running water.

Because they want a socialist police state, that is their goal. Innocent victims are being shamlessly used to bolster their same old tired arguements.

No, there are not a lot of scientific studies that link video games to violence.

You are supplanting assumption for fact. Ask yourself, what is the study that you are referring to? You can’t name it. In fact, the last thorough one that was done in, I believe, 2003 showed the opposite effect.

Besides, when they searched Dahmer’s home they found video games? Nope.

Don’t fall into the trap of ignoring the fact that psychopaths have been with us since time began and no law will change human DNA no matter how fun it is to pretend.

And it’s not always guns. The human hands are still the number one homicide weapon in the U.S.

(Disagreement is discussion and is always appreciated.)
