The NRA’s Contributions to the ‘Filthiest Form of Pornography’

"The NRA would like you to kindly stop looking for flaws in its way of thinking, citing Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat. Here is a list of a few of its members that have made their living off of violent media." (Culture, Mortal Kombat)

NRA Logic: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people"

if so, using that logic then, "Videogames don't kill people, people kill people".

I think both are true. Some people are just insane and need professional help. It's a matter of statistics, a certain percentage of the population will always be born insane or with a predisposition towards insanity.

I do think that guns play a role in a lot more murders than videogames though. I find if I'm super pissed (rarely happens) angry violent games are cathartic.

In all of us there resides a violent, highly competitive savage animal. We did come from cruel and merciless nature after all, just like other animals. I think society, games, sports, porn, etc. releases our animal urges in ways that don't harm others.

Sports for example essentially channels are innate desire for war and battle into a mostly non-violent harmless game. Like videogames, it's a way to conquer other people without actually destroying them.

Sorry people, but we ain't nothing but mammals.
