  •  And...?? The kids who grew up on these games (3+ / 0-)

    are 15-25 right now.  

    That's when people are most likely to commit violent crimes.

    And they're not doing it.  They're very busily, in droves, not doing it.

      9 million violent crimes last year.

      but lets follow your logic, guns in the us are also at record levels, so guns cant be the problem either then.

      so I guess according to you, there really isnt a violence problem in the US,  who knew

        That's what happens when a flawed theory hits the real world. You can't explain what's in front of your face.

          I cant explain it?  I let the Ph'd help explain it, who have done research on the subject.

          I'll be awaiting your phd work that counters it.

            Check the graph here and show me the epidemic of youth violence. Remember, this graph begins just when truly violent video games became popular.

            But there's no epidemic. Rates dropped sharply, and then stabilized.

            If you can't show an effect in the real world, you don't have any justification to imagine one. You have the right to your own feelings, but not to your own facts.

            •  I have the facts and research (0+ / 0-)

              you have little more than ignorant opinion.

              so according to you, what we are doing as a nation, glorifying violence is working, so we just need to up it to even more glorification. Show people killing each other 24 /7 and then we will really have no violence.

              anyway, have a great day. You dont even seem to think there is a violence problem in this country so talk about denial

            •  the graph (0+ / 0-)

              also begins where gun sales in the US skyrocket. so according to you guns therefore cant be any part of the problem either.  See how your "logic" fails at every level?

              We know guns are part of the problem, just as we know culture issues are as well.
