Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Do you think violent movies, TV, and video games contribute NOTHING to the carnage in this country? [View all]

If so, I respectfully disagree. Do NOT misunderstand me: The overwhelming #1 cause of death by shooting in America is the fact that we allow every Tom, Dick and (Wannabe Dirty) Harry to possess firearms that the founders never envisioned or intended in their most fevered dreams!

But to say that Hollywood splatterfests, shoot 'em up shows on televvision, and, yes, video games drenched in CGI blood, which raise the heartbeats of players to over 250 per minute, and which the military itself uses to train soldiers, have absolutely NO impact on the problem?

Sorry, but that's dogmatism.
