You gotta love it when people immediately jump to conclusion when it comes to violence in America. A lot of stupid people want to blame violence on everything. Bad parenting, video games, movies/TV shows, mental health issues, and all that stuff.
It is pretty unfair that the parents of killers get blamed for this, simply because, they have nothing to do with how their child turned out to be. Some parents out there DO raise their kids right, the best they can. Some murderers could be smart kids in their childhood with good grades in school, and all. They can also be perfectly sane and not have any mental health issues at all. Violence in video games, TV shows or movies, have nothing to do with it.
Even if they make ratings even more stricter for video game and movie purchases, there is still violence everywhere in G rated and family friendly PG stuff in entertainment. Like Disney for example. There’s violence in all Disney movies, animated and live action. Back in the old days, when video games or movies wasn’t big, comic books would take the blame in violence. On top of this, I also don’t see how violence in entertainment could have an affect on young children. Doesn’t make a bit of sense. It may have an affect on children a little bit, but not that bad.
Anybody who says that video games make kids violent is a stupid idiot. Don’t blame fucking, Call of Duty.
There were even more violent video games in the past. I’m not talking just first person shooters. There can be violence in, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, or even Sonic the Hedgehog. All that shit has violence. Maybe not as a graphic, but it is still violent. How come that stuff don’t have an affect on children? Quit blaming “Call of Duty”. I can understand why so many people play, “Call of Duty” and other first person shooters ’cause it’s an escape for them. It’s their way of getting away from everything in life. Video games can actually make people a better person, not bad.
How come people don’t blame violence in sports? Like professional wrestling, boxing, or the Ultimate Fights? Kids watch all that stuff too! What about violence in day time soap operas and kiddie cartoons on Saturday mornings? What about violence in fictional books? THERE IS VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK! WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO BE ABOUT CALL OF DUTY!
It’s bullshit! All of it! The media fucking sucks and this is why I hate the news. The news control you to make you believe what they say. You’re talking about gun control and video games in facebook ’cause they believe what the news media report. This is why the news media love to report gun tragedies ’cause they know that this is what the world love to talk about. All these news people care about are ratings and money, to compete with other networks. They’re cold and evil, sons of bitches. They are no different than the killers who commit these crimes.
Even if America gets more gun control or even ban guns for good, there’s no stopping other people using other weapons, or think of new ways to attack and kill people. There’s going to be more Timothy McVeighs, if they ban guns. There will be more suicide bombers. They could use knives and other weapons. There will be more attacks like 9/11, where people get in planes and use it to crash into places. Violence will never stop, no matter what the government will do, even if America gets rid of guns completely.
Sorry for the harsh rant and the swearing, but people are idiots, I tell ya. Just had to vent my frustrations at this never ending debate people got going in facebook.
