Op Ed

The Seattle Times - Video-game industry not to blame for gun violence.
Just like any other form of entertainment, there are a vast number of video-game choices. Donít throw the whole industry under the bus because of a few games that happen to be violent. And even with those games, there is no proof that violent video games lead to violent acts.

The data for gun crimes is out there, google is your friend. If you want to ignore that data however and still call for tougher gun laws, then I'm sorry if I disagree. The data is also out there for how opinionated MSNBC is 85% opinion, 15% actual news, I linked to it yesterday.

You're really no better than I beamer, with your constant name calling and pot shots. You're like the perfect example of Hello pot meet kettle.

Jesus, dude. This is your problem. Who fucking mentioned MSNBC? I've never once watched it, I couldn't tell you who's on it, and I don't care.

What the fuck does MSNBC have to do with this?

Furthermore, fuck. There are so many factors that go into gun crime than, you know, just how strict the laws are. One state having very strict laws won't help much if the state immediately next to it doesn't. And you can't really look across states. I'm sure that IL has much more gun crime than Idaho. Idaho is a barren wasteland. IL has Chicago, a major city with some serious poverty.

Only a moron looks at a number and goes "well, nothing else could influence that."

You said I don't back up what I say, and I often try to link to actual articles and studies. So you're wrong there.

Of course there's more to it than laws, but the fact remains that areas of the US with the toughest gun laws already also tend to have the most crime. That's fact. As much as you hate it for whatever reason.
