As a gamer who has been playing "violent" videogames, since the first became controversial. There are a few simple questions for people who believe violence in the media cause people to commit violent acts in public. Why do other countries in which people play the same video games Americans do, not have these problems? You do realize violence pre-dates videogames by a few thousand years, right? If you want to get rid off forms of violent media, does that include "holy" books such as the Bible, Quran and Torah? Whenever ever such tragedies happen in America. Politicians like to blame ambigious outside sources other than the actual people who commit the acts. Videogames, movies and music always make easy targets for these type rhetorical attacks.
