Yup let's blame videogames
Except possibly for happy ( - if you know what I mean) Independent registered Republicans who may also be RINO's, I think we can all agree that children and minors up to a certain age should be protected from certain types of vid/computer games. This can be done by classifications and labels that warn parents about the content of games. No further regulation is necessary. Let parents control what goes into their children's minds and the State or Government can help by providing information via classification and description labels.

Watch any movies lately?

Perhaps a television show?

have a read of this http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18233164/

Many people think a crime can be solved in a 45 minute TV show and that they really do have all the crazy technology you see on CSI...

Thing is realism usually isn't very entertaining...People should have the mental capacity to differentiate the difference between entertainment and real life. We should not be holding everyones hand as they walk through life. Plus why should the masses be punished for the delusional psychosis of the few.

Jack Thompson is the same as Hillary Clinton and Sarah brady and other anti-firearm folks. Since they do not understand or owm such items, they wish to take it away from eveyone else.

Yep,... all of that too, but the question was about video gamers, so that was what I answered.

No, you are quite right, we can't hold everyone's hand, but we can and must attempt to protect the innocent victims of these weak minded individuals.

Blaming video games is like blaming alcohol for the drunk driver that killed a family...

Or blaming the gun....

Blaming video games is just another in the latest line in shifting the blame elsewhere.

I wonder how long it will be until someone models Hilary Clinton for shooting in a FPS. Man that'll raise a stink.

I should get crackin on that!

Someone should make a DOOM copy but instead of all the demons and such. replace the bad guys with Hillary Clintons, John Kerrys, etc.... That would be funny. Also to be fair, let the evil liberals have their version too.


Hmmmm...... I think I might have a viable product to sell
