Why Politicians are Wrong About Video Game Violence

by Steve Napierski to Comics

If the recent media coverage has demonstrated anything, video games don’t make people violent. Partial government shutdowns make people violent.

      Pantsless crime is great, until you get caught and have to spend the night in jail in your undies.

      There’s a reason that place is called the “pokey” people.

    The ironic thing about this is politicians are the ones who actually make me violent.

    You know, we had a political comic that didn’t bring up anything controversial (for the people of this site, anyway).

    And then, you ruined it by bringing up the shutdown.

    C’mon man. C’mon.

      I don’t see anyone getting partisan in the comments here and he didn’t get partisan himself, so I don’t see the problem.

    Is this still a thing, I thought we settled this Ten years ago. Games aren't the problem, it's our Country's lackluster Gun Regulations.

    I think what people should really worry about is… What causes violent videogames? Eh? Eh? Bet you never thought of that!

    The most violent urges caused by a video game tend to appear immediately after finishing a round of Mario Party.

    Nope we didn't. Every time there is a shooting of ANY kind some people immediately go " well he must of played CoD/BF/GTA and that made him violent". It wont end until we do Thousands of studies and a overwhelming majority of them, Id say 80%, show that video games do NOT CAUSE violence. Also the regulations arnt lackluster its just the regulations on guns arnt really enforced like they should be. The source problem isn't the games or the guns, its the Mental Health System, or complete lack thereof, that is the problem.

    Christopher Kendall gun regulations are enforced what the hell are you talking about? have you tried purchasing a gun? or own one? especially in California ? the band open carry and assault rifles been transported in your car have to be broke down……look at the women who stood her ground and fired into the air in her own property against some one trying to hurt her shes doing about 17 years of jail man. so i dont know where you getting your facts and on another note i do agree with you on the mental health issue.
