I'm 21 now. I have been playing video games, including M rated, for most of my life. I've watched my mom play Tomb Raider, Duke Nukem, and Doom over her shoulder, and I've played my fair share of M rated games myself from Mass Effect to Halo to Call of Duty. I love the stories they tell- They're interactive! However, it takes a sick and twisted person who is obviously already mentally unbalanced to go commit crimes- Crimes that they probably would have already committed eventually whether they saw or played violent media anyway. That's why I really don't understand why it's so hard to stop and look at the individual's mental state and why they were raised without that supervision from their parents.

No, no, no, NO. I hate it when arguments for the second amendment is suddenly turned by accusations that pop culture is the cause of violence. Video games, movies, music, social media in GENERAL is up to PARENTS to control. That is what ratings for video games and movies are for. Stores don't let kids under 18 walk out with violent M or R rated titles, it's always the parents that hand them over to their kids without taking the time and researching what they're getting their children. There is an overabundance of ways to keep a child from accessing content that a parent would deem inappropriate. Parental controls on TVs, game consoles, way so tracking what a kid is viewing on the Internet, etc. It's up to the parent to determine content
