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 is also much more difficult to kill with a knife than with a machine gun, and much easier to escape. Especially since very little people have training in knife throwing, compared to gun shooting.

You realize machine guns have been out right banned since the 1930s? Very very few civilians have machine guns, however the ATF lost one in Milwaukee this past summer along with all the merchandise in their fake store front....

There are so many murders with kitchen knives it's not even funny, it's just easier to kill with guns at a distance, in a closed room with a large knife it would not be difficult and it happens quite a bit in China.

A few years ago this huge guy was trying to beat the crap out of a much smaller guy in a bar, he through the smaller guy on the bar and the smaller guy grabbed a steak knife that was on the bar and stabbed the big guy in the neck, he bled out in a matter of minutes.

So bullshit on the knife argument....
