Forbes - Fun with Reductio ad Absurdum, the NRA and Video Games.
Is it because the media is a corruptible influence? Hereís a hint. Itís because we love real life guns so much as a society that violent shooter games are so popular. A society that is inherently fascinated with violence creates violent media, itís not the other way around. And say what you will about this debate, but a kid playing a video game where he shoots a gun is safer than a kid who is shooting an actual gun, even just at inanimate objects. Compare a kid playing Call of Duty five hours a day to one who goes to the shooting range for the same duration. Which one might be better at hitting real world targets? Adam Lanza was a crack shot, and itís more than a little bit likely it was from his time spent with his mom on the shooting range than it was from his hours spent playing Starcraft.
