Response to Marcia Brady (Reply #12)

46. Representations of violence are not violence. This sounds just like the calls to ban books in the

last century. Come ON. People have to live with the difference between violent thoughts and violent deeds. That's what freedom affords them. If you want to take away violent culture, you also want to take away the freedom to exercise one's imagination -- violent or beautiful -- just because some people decide to treat life as if it's a game. Eliminating the 2nd Amendment would definitely change their behavior, but you don't have to drag down the 1st Amendment with it.
