Actually, there have been quite a few studies done. Most found no link at all. Some that found a link were later debunked by peer review. Some that found a link, only found a link in mentally disturbed individuals. As long as guns themselves are being researched as vigorously as video games, I think it's fine to research. Because I'm 99% sure they'd find guns are more related to gun violence than video games or movies.

Yeah, I read one study that showed a link. Then I googled the author, and found an op/ed by him a couple years earlier railing against video games. Totally invalidated the study, in my mind, as the guy obviously had an agenda.
