BLOODY HELL! I hate when people try and do this. I understand why they do this but their reasoning is incredibly stupid.
Videogames do not teach people to do anything. What they may (maybe) do is desensitize people to violence. But desensitization to violence is caused by many things other than videogames. Movies, TV, music, books and our culture in general desensitize. Plus, humans are twisted animals. Even if they take away everything that has violence in it, humans will still be violent. Nature itself makes us violent. Violent urges are probably still left over from our days as hunter-gatherers. There's no way to solve the problem.
These neurotic assclowns say that videogames teach people how to kill. Hell, I can think of dozens of ways of killing people with various household objects and I guarantee I didn't learn how to by playing videogames.
People just try to blame violence on just one thing. Videogames. Violent movies. Maryiln Manson. There is no one party to blame for ANYTHING. There is no magic bullet, no specific culprit. It's a conspiracy of factors, working hand-in-hand.
And since when do people magically become able to withstand gore and violence when they turn 17? I'm quite sure Mr. Yee has seen some R-rated violent movies in his day. He's probably even played a videogame. Did these movies turn him into a human killing machine? No. It's not going to be any different with kids.There was only one catch and that was Catch-22
