    Actually, they do. They still sell BB guns (my son has a Red Rider), they sell Air Soft guns and they sell all sorts of guns that don’t shoot anything.

    right on, Jeff – our home prohibited toy weapons on the property – a few awkward moments for friends of my daughter and guests

    I think it depends on where you live. I live in cities where realistic guns are often banned as kids have been shot by playing with them near police officers.

    I realize this may seem insensitive at the moment, and not PC, but does not the mother of THIS shooter share culpability for leaving deadly weapons unsecured? Would it be wise to leave a hand grenade with an emotionally unstable individual?

    No, he’s right.
    Remember the Ft. Hood Massacre?
    There were “gun control” types spouting off before the bodies were even cold.
    Meanwhile, I was trying to find out whether or not several people I knew who were on-base at the time were still alive.

    This cartoon is right on target. Glorifying guns and the violent solution to conflict is much of the problem.
    Yes, video games and weapon toys DO promote violence.

    “Danziger should be making fun of the damned video games that make light of gun violence and glorify crime.”
    Danziger should be calling out the parents who buy the games for these kids and allow them to play unsupervised. There are easy-to-understand ratings printed on the back of any video game released in this country, but parents just blindly buy whatever their kids ask for just to keep them quiet- then turn around and complain about “all those violent games my kid is playing”.
    Part of being a parent is controlling what your child has access to.

    I bought my son a BB gun for Christmas. He’s 44 years old now and trained in it’s safe use. Believe it or not, it was his request.

    I was attending an ocular trauma lecture a number of years ago. A slide was projected, showing a BB floating in the fluid in the back of an eye. The lecturer said: “I don’t have to tell any of you what this is.” After a pause, he added: “I hate Christmas.” and then he moved to the next slide.

    You really can “put your eye out”. But it’s such a cute movie.

    “But “where it all started” is actually wth celebrity status and wanting to be famous. The media elevates these shooters to superstar status. They have a place in history. For kids who are mentally unbalanced, this is appealing. Negative attention is better than no attention.”

    I agree with you 100%. The problem is the media would scream like banshees that they were being discriminated against. They elevate their importance above what would be for the public good in this case…

    There is your top 10 video game list for 2012. One is not ultra violence in origin. You wonder what a disturbed kid is going to take away from these? Kids have enough problems separating fantasy ideation from reality. Look at them.

    I think like you. I grew up watching Westerns on TV. My father loved old war movies. I believe they reminded him of his life in WWI and II plus his term in the 3rd Cavalry (with real horses). I had quite a collection of cap guns right up to the day RFK was killed. I took a hammer to all of them to keep them out of future kids’ hands. It didn’t change anything. We have to change our society’s morals. We also have to change how we handle people who have a serious estrangement with society and reality. Maybe we can’t allow people who have family members with those problems to possess firearms. I don’t know.

    Well Morty, you bring up an interesting thought. Assuming you are not a closet psychopath, you can conclude from your post: lots of kids play these games and don’t go over the top and commit mass murder. 100 million Americans are gun owners, the bulk of which are legally registered, law abiding people that don’t commit mass murder. Of course that doesn’t excuse the actions of the few, which are so heinous in nature they completely overshadow the legal abidance of the majority…
