It would be nice to see a middle ground found in the United States.
But still, there was never such mass violence in the decades before. I really do think this is a cultural problem that needs to be examined. These lifelike video games where you go on shooting rampages all day can't be good for impressionable disturbed children and teens... I really think they outta be banned.
I used to work at a video game department and parents were always buying their little children the most violent shooting games... It was unbelievable to me, really.
i don't think video games are the problem. i'm kind of scared a mass shooting "trend" has started and now all the disturbed kids who were considering it will be pushed into it by what they hear about it.
