Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

So my Zombies think the rates went down in countries after a ban?

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.

Maybe he would ring the doorbell. I would answer & see he was well armed and upon him telling me he wanted to kill my children. I guess you want me then to tell him to wait a minute until I get my AK47?
I wonder if the odds of your kids getting that AK47 & shooting themselves are higher that getting into a position where that ASK47 was the only saving means for someone wanting to enter your home & kill them?
Maybe I could place land mines around my home & tell my kids not to step on them?
you didn't answer the question you did the normal lib twist. Is the question to hard for you or is there no libtard sites that can give you an answer.

True that, it's a bullshyte theory__recall the commotion created years ago by dungeons and dragons. Different sorts of people find different sorts of endeavors interesting. Fkn was always at the top of my list followed by fishing__I don't think that there are video "games" for those activities.

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.

There are no poor people in the United States. There are more beds and meals waiting than there are homeless. However, if you go into a homeless shelter on any night, you will find most of the beds empty because they aren't allowed to bring their booze and drugs into the place. Let's review. Poor people don't have money to buy booze or drugs.

i just love conservative sites....

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.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/336116...

sounds like liberal talk to me.

National Review (NR) is a fortnightly magazine founded by the late author William F. Buckley, Jr., in 1955 and based in New York City. It describes itself as "America's most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Review

so now i'm thinking it's conservative talk.

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.
