Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

It's however not the reason for violence. Like some gun proponents claim. There are a lot of things that make people violent, one of which is religious views.

from a theoretical or social view, yes.
from a practical view, no. ban civilians from carrying weapons and no one gets hurt. we can't always hide behind principles. sometimes we need to look for strict practical answers.
