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

Steven Strom of SideQuesting writes:

"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.
