Let’s Have That Conversation About Guns

Violent video games are part of our society's problem. They should be scrutinized by parents (Parents DO have this obligation) & Hollywood (or wherever they come from) should change their evil ways or stop making them for public use. They may make good training exercises for military training, but not a still-developing teenager. Big Pharmaceutical companies are the WORST drug pushers in this country. They have loaded the FDA with former Execs so they can sign off on drugs not properly tested. Note all the recalls about 18 months after a drug hits the public. The Medical profession is under the impression that a doctor visit must include a prescription as a pacifier. You can't blame inanimate things, it's humans who are at fault.

scrase,

I agree with you about violent video games. I personally detest them. And yet I got my kid Black Ops at the age of 13. Why? Because unfortunately, unless I keep him locked in his room, he's going to be playing that game and all the other "shooters" at friends' houses. It is simply the nature of our, in my opinion, far too violent society. As parents we're left with few options beyond limiting the amount of time kids spend playing video games and having conversations with them to be sure they understand the line between fantasy and reality, and what real, as opposed to digital, bullets do to real human beings.

I'd love to see all the "shooters" pulled from the market, but the 1st Amendment prevents that from happening.

How old where you when your kid was born?

For once I agree with liberals. It’s high time to have a conversation about guns. Let’s start with the problem that there are far too few guns on our streets.

Wait, we can’t have that conversation. In fact, we’re not supposed to have what people might commonly describe as a “conversation” at all. We’re supposed to shut-up and listen as liberals, barely masking their unseemly delight at the opportunity, try to pin the murder rampage of one degenerate creep on millions of law-abiding Americans who did nothing wrong. The conversation is then supposed to end with us waiving our fundamental right...
