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?

Also, civilian grade weapons are a joke. They are useful to kill your neighbour, not a soldier.


To quote yourself on that:
That has to be the most idiotic thing I've heard this month.


A bullet through your head shot from a semi-automatic AR-15 will kill you all the same as a bullet through your head shot from a military-grade M-16 assault rifle.

This kind of nonsense makes any of your reasonable arguments also subject to heavy suspicion.
