Family: Testing the link between video games, violence

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

SEARCY — Dave Grossman is hitting his topic — violent video games — hard, writes Frank Fellone in Family. He has a crowd at Harding University’s Benson Auditorium hanging on every word.

On violent video games: “Every year they get more realistic, more powerful and more sick.”

On their effect: “We’re raising the most vicious generation of killers in world history.”

To parents: “Stop feeding your kids violence, death and horror.”

On school security: “If your kids’ college doesn’t have armed cops on campus, take them out of there and send them to a college that cares.”

On educators who fail to prevent school killings: “You will spend the rest of your life in hell.”

Grossman is heard. He is believed. He gets a standing ovation. After his presentation, he’s practically mobbed.

But is he right? See Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for more.

I don’t think “Hell” is ended by your death! Quite the contrary, I think it begins then.

Okay, show of hands - who of us in the over-fifty category have watched lots of John Wayne movies? And what did John Wayne do when someone crossed him? He pulled out that gun and shot them. So now we are blaming violence on things kids are seeing on TV and in video games?
