commented on Should the U.S. ban GTA 5? This Senator thinks so
This sort of blaming has been going on for years now, and it's just unbelievable how much ignorance and scapegoating is expressed by these types of politicians. The problem is not video games, nor has it ever been. The problem is guns and how unrestricted it is. What the U.S. needs to start doing as a country is banning all of these military-grade assault rifles from civilians. If we do that, then the problem of mass murder will be greatly reduced. Out of all the industrialized countries in the world, the U.S. is the country with the most gun violence. This comes from how easy it is to get these military killing machines. I'll put it like this; how much easier is it to kill 26 people with an assault rifle with a 100 round-drum magazine, then it is to kill someone with a six round revolver? Much easier. Until groups like the NRA and gun corporations stop writing our gun laws, these kinds of tragedies are going to keep on happening.
