The Folly of Blaming Video Games
Regulating digital violence cannot reduce crime.
....Most reassuring, however, are the long-term statistics. Video-game violence has been pervasive for the last two decades: The 1990s saw the introduction of popular blood-spattering fare such as Mortal Kombat and Doom, and since then game graphics have inched ever closer to photorealism. Total video-game sales have soared, and some of the most popular series (Grand Theft Auto, God of War) are incredibly violent. The people most likely to be violent, young males, are disproportionate consumers of these games. And yet violent-crime rates in this demographic have fallen. If games inspire violence, the effect is overwhelmed by larger trends.
Even setting the empirical debate aside, itís not clear what an American game-censorship policy would look like at this point. The industry has already created the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, which rates games using a system similar to that used for movies. Many retailers, of their own accord, refuse to sell violent games to minors.
What else is there to do? Given the sales numbers, it seems safe to assume that no amount of public pressure will force game companies to pull gory titles from the shelves. Suing game makers for the actions of their fans has not been an effective strategy either. And when the Supreme Court took up the issue, it held not only that video-game violence is a protected form of expression, but also that the First Amendment prevents laws against the sale of violent games to minors. Only two justices defended this rather modest restriction.
Certainly, parents should police their kidsí video-game selections and play time. There is no reason for a child to spend 15 hours a week spilling digital blood. Schools and parents alike should keep an eye out for children who take an abnormal interest in violence, no matter how they experience it.
But blaming violence on video games is unfair ó and, worse, unlikely to lead to effective policies.

Diversions again.
The video games were just a symptom. If you've been paying attention here, you would have read where most blame the culture created by the so-called "progressives" who forced their preferred sets of norms and mores onto the population to replace the hated Ozzie and Harriet-type mores and norms that didn't produce a mass murder once a month.
You're watching too much so-called "mainstream" news. But, thanks for informing us as to what the indoctrinated Democrat party line bullshit will be to mislead the public.
By the way, did you take over, or under?

For one thing, games can serve as an outlet for violent tendencies, thus relieving these urges rather than incubating them, according to some research. This raises the possibility that game violence and real violence are substitutes: There is a statistical link between the two because violent people like both of them, but taking away video-game violence would actually increase real violence, because these people would lose an outlet.

If that sounds far-fetched, consider that pornography and rape seem to interact this way. Few would doubt that men obsessed with violent pornography are more likely to rape, or that the Internet facilitates menís pornographic obsessions. Yet the spread of Internet access was correlated with falling rape rates.

Relatedly, violent video games keep violent people occupied ó every minute they spend with a controller in their hands is a minute they donít spend hurting others. Some researchers claim that violent crime falls on days when a lot of people are in theaters watching violent movies; itís not hard to imagine something similar happening when violence-prone teens stay at home with Saints Row: The Third rather than going out to run amok.

Or, if the nut broke their window, they leave the room when the alarm wakes them and go to mommy and daddy's rooom where mommy and daddy are waiting for them, and they close the door behind them and blow any sh*tbag to hell that opens that door.
Maybe prior to that, the children got a hold of that gun or when that window broke, you grabbed that gun & blasted your own child in the darkness.

I guess you think that this assault type weapon will kill that intruder so much more dead than a shotgun.

I say the odds of you or your family dying because of that assault weapon are much much much higher than the odds of a scenario where the assault type rifle was needed instead of a shotgun or hand gun.

Actually, it has been proven by many dictators that subjected their populations to the same ideology Obama was indoctrinated with his entire life that it is only necessary to murder about 10 percent of the population to sufficiently condition them to accept a life under Marxism. But, you have to have a credible threat to the rest of the population. After every Marxist dictator murders 10 percent of the population, they can't be out of buwwets. If they don't have any more buwwets, then the population gets some payback and hangs them from a tree.
Therefore, it is necessary for the Democrats to have what was 750 million rounds in the original procurement, which has been significantly increased since it was first announced in Market Watch.
Thank you for that except from your book.

I suppose there would be a ban on hunting rifles, too. And a ban on sport rifles. And a ban on pistols. And how about a ban on kitchen knives. And, I almost completely forgot. According to Eric Holder, the most common weapon used in a violent attack is a baseball bat. I guess we have to ban baseball bats, too.
The mother was going to have guns. He was going to use one of those guns. It wouldn't have mattered what type of gun. And, he's a killer of the defenseless. If there were no guns, he'd just find some other way to kill some defenseless victims. This kid was going to be a serial killer, any way you look at it.
So, in your vast experience & knowledge, you are telling us that this kid would have killed as many whether he had that assault type rifle with multiple large capacity clips as it he had a bolt action deer rifle.

There has been alot of conflicting information reported by The Media. One report stated Lanza was thrown out of school due to his disruptions and therefore had to be home schooled.

The School could have "recommended" Mental Health evaluation, but doesn't mean Lanza had to comply.

If arrested, The Judge could have Court Ordered Mental Health evaluation and treatment if deemed necessary in which Lanza would have had to comply with Court Order.

The Mother could not have forced him to be institutionalized against his will, if he was of emancipated age.

Thanks to our very lenient and liberal legal system, which is a
2-edged sword. I mean, just think, if a Family Member had the authority to have another institutionalized, you'd be weaving baskets, shuffling down the hall after your latest shock treatment therapy and dose of Thorazine, thanks to your Huz-Bind committing you for Menopause. Yes, PMS and Menopause are now listed in The DSM IV as Mental Illnesses. But, I digressed ... Back to topic.

How do you know the Mother didn't have her weapons either locked or in a secured location ( one he didn't know of )?

Even then, knowing she had those weapons, and being a determined lunatic, he would have found them come hell or hades.

She should have been more diligente, I agree, but I wouldn't state she is to blame or "provided" him with the weapons.
She bears the same responsibility all legitimate owners of firearms do, secure and safety of your weapons at all times.
Agree it "appears" she was not responsible in that regard.
I stated "appears".

He applied for a Weapons Permit 5 times, FIVE, prior and was denied.

And one thing, one question ... Why was he wearing a bullet proof vest? He knew it was a "Gun Free Zone" who did he believe was going to shoot him in the chest?

Course, he wasn't "so crazy" to realize the Police were going to off him once they arrived on the scene ... So, WHERE did they shoot him? Only a head shot could have taken him out IF the news info was accurate on the wearing of that bullet proof vest.

Nancy Lanza was most likely trying to protect her son; and although there are some reports that she knew he was deteriorating; perhaps the only recourse would have been for her to call the police to say she was afraid of him. But, then, could they have done anything? Nevertheless, the weapons were provided by her; what was she thinking? Leaving him alone with the weapons for two days? Two days to plan and plot.

I believe it was Conn Carroll who remarked after the election that Ronald Reagan would have looked at 47% of the country paying no federal income tax and called it ďa good start.Ē That philosophy animated Republicans under Reaganís and George W. Bushís presidencies and under Newt Gingrichís Speakership: cut taxes for as many people as possible at every possible opportunity. While GOP tax cuts in those eras often benefitted the wealthy who paid the most taxes in the first place, they frequently offered proportionally equal or greater benefit to taxpayers at every income level. Thatís why the partyís tax-cutting brand helped it appeal to middle class and non-wealthy suburban voters. The Romney campaign never understood the importance of never letting Democrats pose as being to the Republicansí right on taxes, and as a result let Romney and the party get painted as too narrow in its economic appeal. If he wants the GOP to stop being the Stupid Party, Boehner should learn the lesson of Romneyís defeat, and amend Plan B to include, extend or expand every tax cut the Democrats claim to be willing to support. And Republican tax policy going forward should make that a line as stringently defended as the ATR no-tax-hikes pledge.
