        This argument is really odd considering violent crime rates halved in as little as 20 years after violent video games came out. That doesn’t make the idea automatically wrong, but it gives it a hell of a lot to explain.

        There’s basically zero doubt in my mind that video games reduce violent crime for more or less the same reason that cold weather does.

          I learned all I needed to know about violence from Wile E. Coyote.

          I'll hurt a muthafucka with some of those mad ACME moves.

            The problem is complex. Compare the number of guns per household before Columbine to the number of guns per household after Columbine and the number of mass school shootings by year before and after. Without looking at the actual numbers, my suspicion is that the number of guns pre-mid-1990s is about the same (roughly) as today, while the number of school shootings has increase.

            It's more than just guns. I'm not saying its video games. But anyone thinking they are going to solve the problem with stricter gun laws is deluded.

              At the end the guy said all other countries regulate this stuff and so should we.......we do have a rating system.

                        I’m a master at packing suitcases, closets, whatever and I have no doubt it’s bc of Tetris.

                          Interesting how they conveniently left "death by Ninja" off the list for Japan, isn't it?

                              I doubt that I would beat up hookers if it wasn’t for Grand Theft Auto. Okay....maybe just not as many.
