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?

All that is irrelevant though considering that the army can use armoured vehicles, planes, tanks, missiles, chemical weapons, drones... pretty much any kind of killing device known to man, and that without getting into the fact that they have actual military training.

An armed militia on the other hand has a bunch of rifles. Thinking that being allowed to own weapons would make any difference when standing against a government is so delusional it's not even funny.

My point exactly. As I said - just try winning a paintball or softball fight against your local SWAT team, not to mention navy seals.

Every time, they tear us to shreds...
