don’t blame video games

Image

Our country has a violent gun death problem. We have a mass shooting problem that has reached epidemic proportions. But, it is completely wrong to blame video games.

The charts above show that out of the top ten countries where video games are bought (and played) the most, only the United States has the demonstrable issue with gun violence. And the reason for that is clear.

We have a culture of violence that allows and even encourages mass shootings. We have an inciter-in-chief that stirs up hatred and violence at every opportunity, spewing racist and xenophobic rants to rally his base. We have the Senate Majority leader who has been bought and paid for by the NRA and Moscow. He refuses to even allow discussion on gun control.

The problem is not video games. The problem is rotten leadership.

Here is a person of faith that gets it. If only all white evangelicals could understand who they have strayed from the teachings of Jesus…

at least someone is safe

Eighteen school shootings in the first sixteen weeks of 2018. We just keep setting records, don’t we?

When is enough enough? How many victims of gun violence do we have to tally before we realize that this unbridled carnage cannot continue?

How long before we realize that the NRA lobby is paying untold millions to our Representatives and Senators to keep them safe and allow them to prosper?

The body count of the innocent doesn’t matter. What matters is the bottom line for the NRA and the complicity of Congress.
