T Why does everyone kneejerk to taking guns away from law abiding citizens but refuse to even entertain a discussion about the ways we are brainwashing and programming the minds of these mass shooting perpetrators. If we really care about these murdered kids we need to look at all the reasons that lead to these atrocities.
What you are calling "kneejerk" looks like an objective look at data to me. If everywhere was dealing with these issues, your argument would make sense. Being that this is an American phenomenon, we should look at what is different in America, not blame things that are worldwide but act like they only have an effect here. BTW, I like guns far more than violent videogames. But, I just don't think gun advocates make compelling arguments when it comes to the facts of this situation.
And, maybe the answer is that you cannot combine easy access to firearms with access to violent videogames. Maybe the combination is the issue. Well, then we are going to have to decide if we want to further limit the first amendment or second amendment.
