7. People should not dismiss the effects on an already disturbed mind

One that may have been detached from reality.

You can go ahead and make fun of this kind of research, and cite your own experiences, but it could be a lethal cocktail for someone with the deficiencies that Adam Lanza had. Would he still have lashed out and done something violent without a huge cache of violent games that he played obsessively? Perhaps. But maybe it wouldn't have involved walking into a school and killing a bunch of first graders and their teachers.

No one is suggesting censorship. But studies of potential dangers to certain people might make parents more aware and cautious.
