Many agree with NRA on violent video games

I’m troubled by the overwhelming resentment against the National Rifle Association for blaming violent media programming and video games as one cause of the rash of shooting sprees. This from a spectrum of society all believing, by social standards, they are sane. It does beg the question: How can they possibly know how constant exposure to today’s unscrupulous products affect those who are not of sound mind?

Or does our society have more problems than I care to think about? I take the liberty of using the word unscrupulous because I see nothing amusing, entertaining or sane about pulling the trigger or pushing a video game button to disintegrate a human form, or any life form for that matter. Unless it’s a military device, training a soldier to kill his foe.
