I just don’t know how much affect video games can have.
If we want to get serious, we do not need one more laws. We need to have an all out war on gangs. Do not let them congregate. Three strikes in federal crimes. Put them behind electrified barbed wire in the Arizona desert and feed them baloney sandwiches.
First, excellent post. You put a lot of work into that and it shows. I agree with your take on video games also. However, I do have a problem with three strikes. I am a simple man. One strike does it for me for certain crimes. Three strikes is creeping liberalism that basically says to criminals after their first offense that they have two more offenses. Then they know the prisons will be full and get out anyway.
Combatting crime is an integral component of all violence in America, not just gun violence. Real consequences for real crimes are needed. Our prisons need to be reformed to punish in a humane manner instead of being places to learn to be come a better criminal. Once a man goes to prison he should never want to go there again. One strike is enough.
