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.

In 2005 the WTO ruled that the US refusal to let Antiguan gambling companies access their market violated free-trade, as domestic companies were allowed to operate freely. In 2007 the WTO went a step further and granted Antigua the right to suspend U.S. copyrights up to $21 million annually.

TorrentFreak is in the process of obtaining details of the content to be offered and the prices to be charged. One option would be to ask users for $5 a month in return for unlimited access to U.S. media.

hahaha.. YES! do it

id pay 5 for unlimited access, sold

Invented facts or revisionist history Joe?

Yeah, if any people are afraid of facts and all about a fantastical history that's only ever happened in your minds, you'd know all about that.

Here's a better article on the Antigua saga. That one posted tells what Antigua is going to do, but little of the history behind it.

Basically, it boils down to US protectionism and hypocrisy.

Yeah, I think Joe is trying to imply that, based on previous research, the link will be tenuous or non-existent, despite the fact that lots of pols want to use it as a scapegoat.

Research is great, but they're not looking for facts - they're looking for scape goats.

I thought we were over this already.
Sorry man nope, it's the days of rock n' roll and D&D all over again.

Im pretty sure he is talking about not being afraid to accept that research has shown that video games have nothing to do with violent gun crimes....
I wouldn't be against this, if they were also including movies and news. This is so one sided that you can smell the bias.
