Ok NRA. Good luck with that. I'm going to stick to condemning a system which allows the mentally ill to have access to high powered assault weapons. Oh! and continue to enjoy violent video games, music, movies and other mediums, the same way art has been enjoyed and distributed for hundreds of years, to people who have no inclination to draw such parallels between those mediums and their actions. If we measured all concepts by that rational, Jackson Pollock would be a rapist, Shakespeare was a satanist, and yogi bear was in fact a robber.

yet again people blame something on an unrealistic idea that isnt connected with the actual problem

I've played video games since I was 5 years old (violent ones like mortal kombat and Duke Nukem ect..) But what happens in  games doesnt effect my life out of games... I h8 violences out of games... Thats one of the reasons why I play video game(to do what "I cant in real life")

Oh sure blame the video games because you won't admit you made mistakes! I wrote a blog about this and this is why mature games suffer greatly. Still all those little kids died from a sick man NOT VIDEO GAMES!! XO
